Saturday at Dino Manuzzi, as Spezia host Milan in the Serie A.

With Champion’s League positions always a key motivation, third placed Milan remain in contention as they travel to seventeenth placed Spezia.

This season’s Serie A campaign, has so far seen Spezia Calcio achieve four points

It was a humbling defeat at the hands of Juventus for Thiago Motta’s men in their last match, they will be hoping to get something out of this game for sure.

Spezia have now lost three of their last four games, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Thiago Motta. They currently sit in seventeenth place, with a total of four points having won one game, drawn one game, and lost three games.

Playing at home, Spezia have lost two fixtures.

Winning this fixture will see Spezia Calcio on 7 points.

Spezia’s squad will likely be depleted of six of their key players when they start on Saturday, due to injury or illness.

AC Milan have so far accrued 13 points in this season of the Serie A

Milan come to this match on the back of a 2-0 home win against Venezia at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

Milan keep finding ways to win, having secured four victories in their last five matches is astonishing this season, which has contributed significantly to their rise up the table. They currently stand third in the League, with 13 points having won four games and drawn one game.

Milan will travel to Spezia with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one victory and one draw.

A win in this fixture, would take AC Milan’s points from 13 to 16, so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

They have a good scoring stats of 10 goals (9 from open play and one penalty). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Olivier Giroud (2), Brahim Diaz (2), and Rafael Leao (2). So far this season, Milan’s defence has been outstanding, enabling them to only conceded two goals.

Injury and illness have depleted Stefano Pioli’s Milan and they will likely be missing six key personnel for Saturday’s match.
