Roma vs Spezia Prediction
Two successive Serie A wins – against Napoli and Sampdoria – looked like they would be followed by defeat in Turin, when Italiano’s side went down to 10 men in the eighth minute.
However, they even managed to forge the best chances for the remainder of the match – with talented Azzurini midfielder Tommaso Pobega, on loan from Milan, impressing throughout.
