Udinese go into the game against Siena without star man David Pizarro - who is on international duty with Chile - but Spalletti is upbeat.
"I'm convinced we can repeat the run of last year, but it's better to take each game as it comes," said Spalletti.
"For now let us think of Siena - who are a dangerous team.
"They can't afford to lose and they can count on their crowd to roar them on to play well.
"It is similar to our away loss to Empoli, but I expect the players to do better this time."
