Juventus vs Spezia Tips and Prediction
Juventus needed to get off to the greatest possible start against Roma on Saturday after their disjointed performance in a miserable goalless draw with Sampdoria five days prior.
The hosts appeared to be headed for triumph after Dusan Vlahovic thundered home a fierce free kick to give Juve the lead after just one minute and 16 seconds—the quickest goal in Serie A history since records began 18 years ago.
Max Allegri, who was already under criticism, would have exhaled a sigh of relief when Manuel Locatelli then blasted in a second goal, but the VAR later disallowed the Italy midfielder’s attempt due to a handball by Vlahovic. The game was subsequently headed for a 1-1 draw when Tammy Abraham scored the equalizer in the second half.
The Bianconeri have been underwhelming since the first game because big-name summer signings Paul Pogba and Angel Di Maria are injured and unable to motivate them. However, with some challenging games ahead, they must target Wednesday’s home game for a victory.
Juve must first step up their efforts at the Allianz Stadium before taking on Fiorentina in Serie A this weekend and then traveling to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
Allegri guided his team to 35 points at home last season, including three gained from Spezia in March, but that was only Serie A’s seventh-best total and far from enough to mount a title bid. With four points from their first three games, Spezia have had their best start to a Serie A season thus far as they take on their third top-flight campaign under a third new head coach.
Luca Gotti, who was chosen as Thiago Motta’s replacement in the summer, has led his new team to that total with the help of wins over Empoli on the first day and Sassuolo on Saturday.
The Aquilotti, who were defeated 3-0 by Inter in between, undoubtedly did not benefit from a favorable fixture list when the current season’s schedule was released, as they not only had to travel to San Siro and now visit Turin, but they also had to play Napoli and Lazio in their upcoming two road games.
Making the most of home advantage has therefore been crucial, so Gotti will have been disappointed that his team was unable to win another victory at Stadio Alberto Picco after surrendering early in the second half after coming back from behind to lead Sassuolo at the break.
While Spezia and Juventus both had win-draw-loss records at home and away last season, it will be difficult for them to compete against One other at the Allianz Stadium given that they have lost all four of their matches since being promoted.
Juventus can maintain their dominance in this Serie A kings versus regional hopes matchup, despite the fact that their team feels particularly weak due to injuries.
Although it may not be enjoyable to watch, the hosts have enough individual talent to win the match.
