Spezia and Roma are both back to winning ways after last week ahead of a meeting at the Stadio Alberto Picco with the home side now in 15th and with a healthy gap on the relegation zone.
Despite a routine win for Roma last time out against Fiorentina, the club have actually moved down from sixth and into seventh behind Atalanta. The Bergamo side smashed Salernitana 8-2 and have subsequently moved above the Rome outfit on goals difference.
Paulo Dybala was the hero once more for Jose Mourinho’s side, as he scored a goal in either half to collect all three points at the Stadio Olimpico.
It was also the third clean sheet for Mourinho’s men since the World Cup, with their only dropped points coming in the chaotic 2-2 draw at the San Siro against AC Milan.
Spezia are above the bottom three by nine points after their fourth win of the season. Their 1-0 victory over Torino also kept up their unbeaten form since the World Cup after a 2-2 draw with Atalanta and a 0-0 draw with Lecce.
