✅ Stats before the game.   Spezia won only one of the nine league matches (between Serie A and B) in the 2000s against Bologna: 2-0 in February 2007 in the cadeteria (3D, 5L).  Since last December, Bologna is the team that has lost the most games in Serie A: 7/10 (2W, 1D) – the rossoblù have also not scored in the last two league games and have never registered three matches in a row without goals in the tournament with Sinisa Mihajlovic at the helm.  Bologna have conceded 40 goals in this league, in their history in Serie A only twice have they collected more goals after 24 matches this season: 43 in 1955/56 and 42 in 1949/50.  For the first time in Serie A, Spezia scored in eight games in a row, the Ligurians in the period earned 14 points (4W, 2N, 2P), less only than Juventus (18), Lazio (17), Naples (17) and Milan (16).  Spezia could win five away games in a single season for the first time in Serie A, the Ligurians have in fact won four of the 13 away games in 2021/22, as many as they have been victorious in 2020/21 (four, in 19 games however).
