On Sunday, June 11, 2023 Spezia will compete against Verona in the Matchday Playoff of the Playoff match. Watch here, Spezia vs Verona live streaming, preview and how to watch it.
Spezia and Verona will battle it out to retain their place in Serie A in the play-off tie which takes place at Sassuolo’s Mapei stadium. The two teams have tied for 31 points from 38 matches in the regular season and must decide their fate in one game of life and death. If it’s a draw after 90 minutes there will be extra time and penalties to separate them.
Spezia and Verona are having a lot in common at the moment. Both their performance and achievements show the balance between the two teams. Therefore, many football experts have predicted a draw scenario between the two teams within 90 minutes of the official match at the Mapei stadium.
This is a match that determines who will continue to play in the Italian premier league (Serie A), and who must go down to the second division league (Serie B). Previously, both teams had 31 points/38 matches in the 2022/23 Serie A final standings, in 17th and 18th positions.
In accordance with the new rules imposed since last season, the two teams will have to play one more game to decide the final relegation place (after Sampdoria and Cremonese) instead of using other criteria (such as head to head, goal difference, etc.) to determine which team is in the final. above (team in 18th place will be relegated) as usual.
Spezia came close to securing a place in Serie A in the last round when they took a 1-0 lead over Roma at the Olimpico. However, bad luck befell them when Paulo Dybala scored a penalty in the 90+1 minute to give the hosts a 2-1 win. Spezia had to regret the referee’s decision to award a penalty to Roma for a seemingly minor offence.
Verona also has its own sad story. They have picked up just one point from their last four games and failed to capitalize on their advantage over a lackluster Empoli in the previous round. Verona were leading 1-0 until 90+6 minutes before conceding an own goal which made the score 1-1. Verona looked caught off guard after scoring and allowed Empoli to dominate the game.
However, these two unfortunate results certainly provide valuable lessons for both teams. Since there was only one round, the upcoming playoff matches will be held at a neutral stadium (Sassuolo’s Mapei). For Spezia, they have played in Serie A for 3 consecutive seasons since they first arrived (2020/21) and almost every season they have had to fight hard for a place to survive, so experience is not lacking.
However, on the other hand, Verona has more experience and mentality than Spezia because their participation in Serie A is better. If you look at the performance in the last few months, Hellas Verona is also superior.
Moreover, Verona has no problems with injuries or cards. They have a complete squad but not very qualified. Verona hope to maintain their good form in recent months. From the last 10 matches, they won three and lost four times, while Spezia only won once and lost six times. Both teams have the same weak attack power (31 goals each) and an almost balanced defense (Spezia conceded 62 goals and Verona 59 goals).
