Match Insights: Juventus

Juventus have won all four previous Serie A TIM matches against Spezia. Juventus lost the last Serie A TIM match played on Wednesday, against Sassuolo on 27 October 2021 – the bianconeri have not recorded two consecutive defeats in the tournament on this day of the week since 2005, when Fabio Capello sat on the bench. Juventus have drawn their last two home games – the bianconeri have not drawn three matches in a row in Serie A TIM since October 2020, when Andrea Pirlo was on the bench. Juventus have won only two of their last six home games in Serie A TIM – since the beginning of April, among the teams that have played at least six home games in Serie A TIM in the period, only Atalanta (zero) and Hellas Verona (one) have done worse than the bianconeri.

Among the teams he has faced more than three times in Serie A TIM, Spezia is the one against which Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic has the best minutes/goal ratio (one goal on average every 84 minutes) – four total goals against the Ligurians, including his last hat-trick in the tournament, in October 2021 with the Fiorentina shirt.

Match Insights: Spezia

Spezia could become the fifth opponent against which Juventus manages to win all the first five matches in their history in Serie A TIM after Chievo, Pescara, Sampierdarenese and Siena. For the third consecutive season, Juventus and Spezia will face each other in Serie A TIM during the first six days, after 2020/21 (in the sixth) and 2021/22 (in the fifth) – in both of these first-round matches, both teams found the net. Spezia have earned four points in the first three games of this championship, a record after the first three seasonal matches in Serie A TIM (1W, 2P in 2020/21 and 1N, 2P in 2021/22) – after four games the Ligurians have conquered four points in both 2020/21 and 2021/22. Spezia did not score in their last away league match; the Ligurian team has not remained two away games in a row without goals since December 2021.

Player to Watch: Simone Bastoni

Simone Bastoni (five goals in Serie A TIM) has taken part in two of the three goals scored by Spezia in this league (assist for Nzola against Empoli and goal against Sassuolo) – he is one of only three defenders with at least five goals and 10 assists in the competition from 2020/21 onwards, together with Theo Hernández and Davide Faraoni.
