Spezia vs Carpi Betting Tips
Home pitch advantage is for Italian teams in the second division and so far Spezia made the most of each game played in front of their friends. They walked twice and each time they prevailed by the odd goal, something that would be regarded as a major success if it were to occur tonight.
Catellani and Ebagua played in both games so far there is no reason for why the two strikers would be kept on the bench this evening. So far, they have scored a combined three goals and in the second half there is a strong possibility for them to be joined by Ardemagni, as the third striker.
The hosts have no reason to settle for a draw, but they should prepare for an encounter with an overly defensive team. Carpi knows that if they are to prevail this season and make the playoffs, they would need to accumulate as many points on the road as possible. This is exactly what they did so far and with six points after four rounds, they only need to keep the undefeated streak alive.
Mbakogu played in all four games so far and scored twice, with the midfielders being even more prolific and that's why he's expected to be the only attacking player on the pitch. Interesting enough, two defenders scored two goals each and since none of them is affected by injuries, coach Castori will use them both.
- Carpi managed to score a goal in each match so far and has an average of goals scored per game.
- The two teams have split point in previous games, with none of them winning in front of their fans yet.
