Two sides in the thick of the battle against relegation from Serie A are set to face off at the Stadio Alberto Picco on Sunday, October 16th.
The clash in question will see Spezia play host to Cremonese.
Let’s first take a look at the recent endeavours of the former.
Spezia are set to head into the latest round of action in Italy’s top-flight eyeing a return to winning ways. This comes with the Aquilotti fresh off back-to-back defeats since the close of the international break.
After first being dealt a hammering by high-flying Lazio, last time out, Luca Gotti’s troops were once more made short work of, on this occasion courtesy of a 2-0 defeat at the hands of newly-promoted Monza.
Such woes leave Spezia sitting in a lowly 15th in the Serie A table, just three points clear of the drop zone, with just two wins from nine on the board.
Sunday’s hosts, though, could not ask for a much more favourable fixture in which to get their form back on track.
Upcoming opponents Cremonese have been dealt a harsh dose of reality since their return to Italy’s top tier was confirmed earlier this year.
In fact, across their own nine outings to date, the Lombard-based minnows have scraped together just three points, yet to get off the mark in the wins column.
Their most recent outing, meanwhile, saw the Violini, with spirits on the up in the camp owing to just one defeat in four, put to the sword in comfortable fashion by table-topping Napoli.
Despite pulling level courtesy of Cyriel Dessers early in the 2nd-half, late strikes on the part of all of Giovanni Simeone, Hirving Lozano and Mathias Olivera ensured that Cremonese were dealt a 6th defeat from nine, courtesy of a 4-1 final scoreline.
And, sitting 2nd from bottom in the table, we at 101 do not see matters improving all too much for Cremonese this weekend.
Instead, we are backing Spezia to ultimately emerge from the Alberto Picco triumphant.
