What are these spots on my Pineapple Guava leaves?

Guava    Italy

Hi!
I have two plants of feijoa/acca sellowiana/pineapple guava planted one and two years ago.
I noticed some black/brown spots on their leaves as in the pics.
Do you know what can be the problem?
I did not find a lot about, some say it is a soil deficiency, others that it is called "feijoa leaf spot", others that it is "black spot disease".
Thank you!

Have you done any soil testing before planting? Normally pineapple guava needs the soil rich in organic matter and grows best in soil with 6.2 pH.
The main disease which causes the severe loss is fungal leaf spot caused by Sphaceloma sp. Other leaf diseases are Cercospora sp., Cylindrocladium scoparium, and Phyllosticta sp.
