AS Roma hosts Spezia in round 19 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Saturday, January 23rd at Stadio Olimpico (Rome)
Roma cannot win three times in a row. The Wolves got into another scandal. It would be better if they lost to Spezia on January 19th in the regulation time of the match. After all, they not only failed to put the squeeze on the underdog in the extra-time (it won 4-2), but, on the contrary, they were disgraced. First, Mancini and Lopez picked up red cards in a short segment, and then the coaching staff made a mistake and held extra substitutions. It probably means that the club really wanted to stop the fight in the cup. After all, the struggle for a place in the top four in Serie A is very tough, and there are many contenders for positions in the quartet. And Roma did not learn to play with them on equal terms. In January, it barely pulled out a draw with Inter at home and lost to Lazio with an indecent 0-3 score.

The Eaglets spend their first season in Serie A. And they claim to become the main discovery of this championship. Yes, Spezia is lower in the standings than another newcomer, Benevento. But experts expected a good game from Inzaghi’ Sorcerers, and the absolute debutant was considered the main “favorite” in the dispute for relegation. Vincenzo Italiano's charges were especially good in recent matches. Before the victory over Roma in the cup, they managed to score the winning away goal against Napoli in the minority and beat Sampdoria at home with the same 2-1 score. On January 16, Spezia was left with ten men already in the 8th minute of the away match against Torino. But it showed a confident game in defense, created more half-attempts than the Bulls, and deservedly took out a goalless draw from Turin. But questions arise each time - how long will this agility of Spezia continue?
Unexpectedly, Roma lost both previous matches in the cup after a draw in regulation time. And it happened at Stadio Olimpico! Before the last scandalous game, there was a home defeat on penalties in December 2015. No other outcome, except for revenge, will be understood in Rome. We bet that the angry wolves will ensure victory already in the first half.
Prediction for the match: Roma to win the first half and the match
