Verona

The visitors will be without Nikola Kalinic, Samuel Di Carmine, Andrea Favilli, Ronaldo Vieira and Marco Benassi for this trip. The absence of these attacking players poses a problem for manager Ivan Jurić, as Verona have struggled in the final third this term.

The visitors are missing some of their top goalscorers and might struggle to make the most of the home side's leaky defence. We expect the game to end in a goalless draw as both sides fail to capitalize up front.

Prediction: Spezia 0-0 Verona
