Spezia vs Torino - Match Preview
⚽ 27 May 2023 - 13:00 GMT +0
A well-timed two-match unbeaten run (W1, D1) has seen Spezia escape the Serie A (SA) relegation zone, and with just two rounds of the season remaining, boss Leonardo Semplici is delighted his side are the “architects of our own destiny”. A 0-0 draw with fellow strugglers Lecce last time out means that victory over Torino would guarantee Aquilotti’s safety with a game to spare should results elsewhere work in their favour.
That’s something Spezia certainly ought to be confident of achieving given they have lost just one of the last five H2Hs (W3, D1), while they boast a 100% record in this fixture on home soil. After beating AC Milan in their last outing at the Stadio Alberto Picco, Aquilotti now has the chance to win back-to-back SA home games for the first time in over a year as they seek to rubber-stamp their top-flight status for next season.
Although currently in mid-table, Torino is still determined to land a top-eight finish with doubts surrounding Juventus’ eligibility for European competition next term. That goal remains “achievable” according to boss Ivan Jurić, who saw his side extend their unbeaten run to four matches with a 1-1 draw against Fiorentina (W2, D2), leaving them in a logjam of four sides from 8th-11th separated by just two points ahead of the round.
Climbing that mini-league will likely need Torino to continue their impressive form on the road this term, with their 28 points collected away from home bettered by only three SA sides. That includes a run of three successive away wins without conceding, so Jurić’s men have every reason to believe they can take another step towards a top-eight finish for just the second time in nine seasons.
📋 Players to watch: Spezia forward M’Bala Nzola scored a joint-career-high three goals against Torino, including the winner in this season’s reverse fixture. Opposite number Antonio Sanabria has charged Torino’s post-World Cup surge, directly contributing to 12 goals in 22 appearances (G10, A2).
⚡ Hot stat: Spezia has led just six SA games at half-time this season, a record better than only Cremonese and Sampdoria, both of whom have already been relegated.
