Spezia to score first
Spezia were relegated from Serie A last season while Catanzaro got promoted to Serie B from Serie C, Girone C last season. We think these are two very different teams with varying ambitions.

Both teams to score
While these teams meet for the first time, there is some familiarity between the hosting and the visiting coach.
The two tacticians have met 7 times during which Catanzaro’s head coach, Vincenzo bagged two wins while Spezia’s tactician, Massimiliano Alvini bagged three wins. There were two draws in the manager H2H from the 7 encounters. We expect some level of familiarity in this clash, so both teams to score is another Catanzaro vs Spezia prediction.
