Sassuolo and Spezia meet in the Serie A on Saturday

Spezia will entertain Sassuolo at the Stadio Alberto Picco in Serie A action on Saturday.

Both teams have a win and a loss to their name in their two league games thus far. Spezia got their season off to a winning start with a 1-0 win at home over Empoli but fell to a 3-0 defeat at Inter Milan last time around.

Sassuolo suffered a 3-0 defeat against Juventus in their campaign opener but managed to bounce back with a 1-0 win over Lecce in their previous outing.

The two teams have identical stats at the moment, conceding three goals and finding the back of the net once. As a result, Sassuolo are just one place above the hosts in the standings, with the two sides occupying the 10th and 11th places respectively.

Spezia vs Sassuolo Prediction

The two teams have endured similar starts to their league campaigns and, given their goalscoring form, the game might pan out to be a low-scoring affair. The Aquilotti are winless at home against Sassuolo, so the game will likely end in a win for the visitors.
