Serie A Preview | Spezia vs. Bologna: Pressure back on

by | Nov 27, 2021 22:32

Spezia and Bologna are both coming off painful defeats, just as they were starting to find some confidence.

Despite that 5-2 hammering by Atalanta, Thiago Motta’s Spezia are still out of the bottom three and hope to remain there. Emmanuel Gyasi is suspended, so Antiste joins Daniele Verde and M’Bala Nzola upfront, while Nikolaou returns from his ban.

Bologna had won back-to-back games until the 1-0 home loss to Venezia. That could prompt a reshuffle on the right, where Riccardo Orsolini and Ibrahima Mbaye are in the running.
