Serie A Spezia vs Juventus 9/22/2021 Prediction and Match Preview

Juventus have made a horrible start in the new season and they still haven’t found the needed chemistry to operate in the post-Ronaldo era. They are currently sitting inside the relegation zone (not a joke), and they will be hosted by Spezia on Wednesday, who are sitting 5 places above them. Weird times.

Spezia (1 win, 2 losses, 1 draw) are coming off a really balanced match on the road against Venezia, where they scored a late goal to eventually record their first win of the season. They actually took the lead at the 13th minute of that match, but were equalized at the 59th minute, only to score the winning goal at the 94th minute for the final 2-1 win. They have not kept a single clean sheet so far, but they have scored in 4 of their 5 matches in all competitions. Spezia are sitting at the 13th spot of the Serie A with 4 points, scoring 5 goals and conceding 10 in the process, already the 3rd worst defense in the league. In their only home match this season, Spezia lost to Udinese by 1-0 but they feel hard-done by that result.

Juventus (0 wins, 2 losses, 2 draws) are coming off a mediocre performance in the home derby against AC Milan, where the two teams split the points in a 1-1 draw. Juventus took the lead at just the 4th minute of that match with Alvaro Morata, but AC Milan pulled even at the 76th minute with Rebic for the final 1-1 draw. Juventus did beat Malmo by 3-0 on the road in the Champions League opener last week, but they still remain win-less after 4 matches in the Serie A. They are now sitting inside the relegation zone, at the 18th spot of the league table with just 2 points, scoring 4 and conceding 6 goals. They have lost their path with the departure of Ronaldo, and it is up to the coach to help them carve a new one.

Spezia vs Juventus. Juventus won both matches against Spezia last season, by 4-1 in this venue before a 3-0 in Torino. However, this season they have been seriously impacted by the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and they still haven’t found their footing. They definitely need a win here in order to turn their season around, but we should be very careful until they actually prove that they are healthy. Taking the Under 3 Goals here.
