Top-flight AC Milan travel to Stadio Alberto Picco on Saturday to face Spezia in Serie A.
The Rossoneri are looking to continue their unbeaten start to the campaign, having earned four wins and drawn in their first five games.
They are tied with city rivals Inter Milan with 13 points, but are in second place thanks to a lower goal difference.
Spezia, for his second consecutive year in the top flight, finds himself above the relegation zone.
With just one win in five games, the Eagles are just one point above the promoted team Venezia in the standings.
Head to head Spezia vs AC Milan
There have only been three clashes between the two camps before.
While the Rossoneri won the first two, including a 3-0 win at San Siro last season, Spezia got her revenge with a sweet 2-0 home win in February this year.

Prediction Spezia vs AC Milan
Spezia, despite his modest position in the league, has looked impressive lately. Even Juventus had to work hard to beat them in their last game.
But the Rossoneri are always a better side. They may be missing a lot of their key players, but they have a strong squad that can make up for it.
It’s going to be tough, but a narrow win for the away team looks likely.
Prediction: Spezia 1-2 AC Milan
