Its time to get back to winning ways for Juventus. With Cristiano Ronaldo back from Covid 19 protocol this should be a added boost to the lineup for Andrea Pirlo’s side, who have struggled in this young Serie A season.
Juventus vs Spezia: Head to Head:
Given that the 2020-21 campaign is the first season in which Spezia have made an appearance in Serie A, they have faced Juventus only on a handful of occasions before Sunday's game.
These sides have only clashed in Serie B twice, in the 2006-07 season when the Bianconeri were relegated to the second division in the aftermath of the infamous Calciopoli scandal.Surprisingly, Spezia, also referred to as the Bianconeri, drew their home game and recorded a famous 3-2 away win over Juventus that season.
Final Analysis and Prediction:
The 9 time Serie A Champions are still trying to find their way under new Coach Andrea Pirlo, however with Cristiano back in the line-up this will be a huge boost.
Juve's hunger to bounce back from their 2-0 defeat to Barcelona should motivate them to record their first win against Spezia, who've scored just twice and conceded seven times in the competition this season.
Juventus 3-0 Spezia
