Spezia hosts Fiorentina in round 25 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Monday, February 14th at Stadio Alberto Picco (La Spezia)
Spezia took 15th place in their debut season in the top division of Italian football. In the current Serie A draw, things are going in a similar way. The club is in about the same place, and the players are doing everything to stay in the elite. And the Eaglets have not lost in four previous matches in a row (three victories and one draw). Moreover, they managed to score points not only against the representatives of the lower part of the standings. There was also one sensation — Spezia deal with AC Milan at San Siro (1-2). This successful streak allowed the Eaglets to temporarily break away from the relegation zone. Let’s note that they missed the winter transfer campaign. No one left the club, but Thiago Motta did not receive newcomers either.

Fiorentina recently sold its main asset and the top scorer not only of the team but of the entire Italian championship. Dusan Vlahovic has made the move to Juventus. The Old Lady paid a little more than 80 million euros. The president of Fiorentina may be pleased with the amount received, but the Violets have lost a valuable player. The result was not long in coming. With Vlahovic, the team hammered Genoa 6-0, and one of the goals was scored by a Serbian striker. Without Dusan, Fiorentina almost lost to Cagliari (1-1) and suffered a home romp from Lazio (0-3). In winter, the Violets got forwards Piatek and Cabral, as well as winger Ikone, but the newcomers are going through a period of adaptation at a new place of work. Nevertheless, Fiorentina managed to beat Atalanta with ten men on Thursday and advanced to the Italian Cup semifinals (2-3).
We think that the upcoming game will be rich in goals. The statistics hint at this fact. Fiorentina played 17 out of 23 games with Over 2.5 goals scored. This is the 4th indicator in the championship. Spezia showed such an outcome in 14 out of 24 matches. The Violets have an average match production of 3.2 goals, while the Eagles have 2.9. In addition, all three head-to-head confrontations turned out to be productive. In 2020, a 2-2 draw was recorded, and the following year, the Violets defeated the opponent twice with the same score of 3-0.
