Spezia collected four points from their previous three matches, as they were defeated 2-0 against Cremonese. They retaliated in a 2-0 win against AC Milan, before drawing 0-0 with Lecce. Spezia only pulled off two wins from a possible six in recent Serie A matches on home soil. Of the remaining four matches, they drew two and lost two, as they scored five and conceded seven goals.
Spezia are closer to the relegation zone than they would have wished for at this late stage of the season. They are still capable of pulling clear though and securing another season in the top flight.

Spezia find it tough these days to get a goal in, but Torino are equally lacklustre in front of goal currently, and going with under 2.5 goals in the betting market is the obvious choice.
