Spezia have failed to find their feet in Serie A, falling to a 2-0 defeat away to Juventus on Wednesday.

They have now failed to taste victory in three games, picking up one point from a possible nine since their 1-0 opening day win over Empoli on August 14.

Spezia have now returned to home turf, where they have managed just one win in their last six league games, claiming one draw and losing four since April.

Meanwhile, Bologna were denied their first win of the season by Salernitana in a 1-1 draw.

They have now picked up two draws and lost as many in their opening four games, with their last win coming in the Coppa Italia on August 8, where they saw off Cosenza 1-0 at home.

However, Bologna will fancy their chances of ending their dry spell, as this game pits them against a Spezia side who have lost their last three meetings with Bologna since December 2020.

Spezia vs Bologna Head-To-Head
