Analysis:

Spezia will be facing visiting rivals Roma at Stadio Alberto Picco in this Serie A match on Sunday.

Spezia
Ranking 16th on the table, Spezia are now only four points above the drop zone. Spezia have won only one of the last seven home matches in all competitions. They have lost three of the last five in the process, including the 0-2 defeat to lower-division Lecce in the second round of Coppa Italia. Spezia come into this game on the back of a 2-1 loss to Sinisa Mihajlovic's Bologna in the league.




AS Roma
Slipping to eighth position, AS Roma are six points outside the Champions League qualification spots and now trailing both Fiorentina and bitter rivals Lazio in the standings. The Romans allowed at least two goals in each of the last three outings across competitions, a run that includes the 2-0 defeat to Inter Milan in the Coppa Italia quarterfinal. They drew 2-2 against Hellas Verona in Serie A on last time out.


Prediction
Having lost consecutive games and starting without their first-choice striker, it’s believed that Spezia's downward trend will continue. Expect the visitors can return to the capital with all three points.
