The Stadio Alberto Picco sees Sunday action as Spezia take on Fiorentina – 3:00pm GMT.

With a League position of fourteenth, Fiorentina will be two places higher than struggling Spezia, when they visit the Stadio Alberto Picco.

Spezia Calcio go into this game with nine points secured

With a win in their previous game, (1-0) against Salernitana, Spezia will likely be in a positive frame of mind.

Also, Luca Gotti knows that a run of six losses in 10 fixtures for his Spezia side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. With nine points (2W, 6L and 3D), they are established in sixteenth position in the League having won two matches, drawn three games, and lost six matches.

Spezia have won two games and drawn three fixtures of their five League matches at home this season.

Spezia Calcio will have 12 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Spezia may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.

Fiorentina have so far accrued 10 points in this season of the Serie A

Fiorentina have dropped five points in their last two matches – a 3-4 defeat at Internazionale and 1-1 draw at Lecce.

Also, Fiorentina have now lost five of their last eight meetings, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Vincenzo Italiano. With a fourteenth position in the league and 2 wins, 5 losses and 4 draws, they currently have 10 points in the League having won two fixtures, drawn four meetings, and lost five matches.

Fiorentina have drawn two meetings and lost three games of their five League matches away from home this season.

A win in this fixture would take Fiorentina’s points to 13 in the League.

Fiorentina are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Vincenzo Italiano is concerned that Sunday’s fixture could see him without four of his key players
