Spal 2-1 Roma: Ranieri's side crumbles in Ferrara

16 March at 20:04
Spal host Roma in Ferrara today as Claudio Ranieri looks to make it two wins from two games as head coach at Roma. Ranieri signed a short term deal to keep him at the club until May; with it then thought that the Giallorossi will undergo somewhat of a revolution and completely alter the state of affairs behind the scenes.

  • SPAL won their last Serie A encounter vs AS Roma after they had lost four of the previous five (D1).
  • SPAL have only won both games vs AS Roma in a single Serie A campaign once before, back in 1965/66.
  • AS Roma have won their last two away games vs SPAL in Serie A (without conceding a goal), as many as they managed in the previous 14 such matches vs the Biancazzurri in the competition (D3 L9).
  • SPAL have won only 11 points in their last 18 matches in Serie A (W1, D8, L9): the joint-negative tally alongside Chievo.
  • Only Frosinone (17 matches) are on a current longer wait for a home win than SPAL (11) among the sides in Serie A this season.
  • AS Roma have landed 164 shots on target in the current Serie A season: a joint-record, level with Juventus.
  • SPAL have scored with a joint-negative number of players in Serie A this season (seven), whilst AS Roma have the joint-highest total of goalscorers in the competition (16, level with Juventus).
  • Claudio Ranieri has a win percentage of 58% in Serie A with AS Roma (W36, D14, L12): his highest percentage among the seven teams he has managed in the competition.
  • SPAL’s Alberto Paloschi has scored three goals in Serie A vs AS Roma, including his first brace in the competition back in February 2011 with Genoa.
  • Edin Dzeko is the only player among the top-5 European Leagues with 5+ goals scored but with all of them coming away from home (seven of seven).
