Spezia vs Bologna 
Italy – Serie A 
Date: Sunday, 4 September 2022 
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET 
Venue: Stadio Alberto Picco. 

Both Bologna and Spezia had disappointing campaigns the last season in the Italian top flight and had to settle for spots in the bottom-most tier of the table.  

As such one would expect that the teams will be much more careful this time around and will gun for a spot in the top half of the table right away from that starting of the campaign itself. 

However once again the two teams have carried their poor form into a new season and are letting in goals in huge numbers. In fact, the two teams have combined together so far in this new campaign to register a total of just one win. 

Going on, Bologna are placed 18th in a table of 20 and they have a 100-percentage losing record disregarding a single draw. On the other hand, Spezia have a 100-percentage winless record disregarding their only victory against the struggling Empoli. 

On top of that majority of head-to-head clashes over the years have witnessed goals coming in plenty and more of the same is expected this Sunday as well.
