Reason For Roma vs SPAL Predictions

  • SPAL currently rank as Serie A’s worst away team; they’ve not won away from home this season.
  • SPAL have scored just one goal in seven travelling league games this campaign.
  • On average, SPAL are conceding five more shots on target than they’re registering at the other end.

More of the same from Roma

In a season where Juventus aren’t the only ones fighting for the title, Roma ought to be right in the hunt, though they’re a little way behind at present: seven points behind Juventus and nine behind Inter to be exact.

Fortunately for Roma, who have lost only one in seven at home, wining four of the other six, they’ve got an excellent opportunity to take three points on Sunday. They welcome a SPAL side who have struggled on the road.

Roma’s recent efforts at home against the likes of struggling sides AC Milan and Brescia, both of whom they beat and scored multiple goals against, bode well ahead of this match. A repeat of those antics would surely see Paulo Fonseca record a third straight home win.

Visitors in trouble

Having performed respectably to beat the drop in each of their first two seasons after winning promotion, SPAL may have had eyes for a respectable mid-table finish this time around, though they’ve gone in the other direction. To put it simply, they’re struggling, so much so staying up looks as big ask.

As things stand, Sunday’s visitors are bottom of the pile and are three points from safety. Three points isn’t a lot, so they are very much still in touch, but performances don’t exactly suggest they’ll move up the table any time soon.

Defensively, SPAL are better than several of the teams above them. They’ve conceded less goals than all but one of the other nine teams in the bottom half, though they’re the worst team in the league in terms of scoring goals, as a total of just nine in 15 matches tells us. On the road, their attacking productivity is truly dreadful. They’ve scored just one goal in seven away games.

Hosts to secure routine win

If we look at the efforts of both, especially in their respective home and away games, this is Roma’s game to lose. Punters can be on the right side of the result by supporting ‘Roma to Win & Under 3.5 Goals’ at a decent price.

For all SPAL have been dreadful offensively on their travels, failing to score in six out of seven away from home, they’ve made a habit of frustrating teams for long periods and not giving too much away. This hasn’t stopped them from getting beaten on a regular basis, but it has meant they’ve avoided a hammering.

None of SPAL’s seven travelling games have seen more than three goals go in. Moreover, Roma, as good as they can be, haven’t scored an outrageous amount at home of late, while less than four goals have been scored in each of their last five at Stadio Olimpico. Our correct score prediction is therefore 2-0 to Roma.
