Brescia vs Lecce: Prediction
The Rondinelle snapped their six-game losing streak by beating SPAL 1-0 in the relegation dogfight. Mario Balotelli scored a goal and Joronen saved a penalty from Petagna in a priceless victory over fellow-strugglers.
As a result, Brescia leapfrogged Ferrara-based club on the table, but they’re still in the dropping zone. A win on Sunday vs their old foes from Serie B would fix that ahead of their rescheduled match vs Sassuolo next week.
Brescia have claimed just one point at home from six games, scoring 0.83 goals per match whilst conceding 2.50. They lost three games on the trot at the Mario Rigamonti.
Dessena is injured and Cistana is suspended for the hosts.
Lecce fought back once again to earn a huge point at Via Del Mare against relegation-threatened Genoa. Subscribed to thrilling matches, having played out four 2-2 draws in last eight Serie A outings, Fabio Liverani’s men moved to 15h place, four points clear off danger area. With zero wins achieved at home this season, that’s a fantastic position to be in after 15 rounds.
The Salentini have recorded three wins, two draws and three losses away from home this season, netting 1.50 goals per bout and conceding 2.00. They’ve beaten Fiorentina 1-0 in their latest road fixture.
The visiting side will be without injured Meccariello, Mancosu is highly doubtful for trip, Petriccione and Lucioni are banned.
Brescia and Lecce were the most overish sides in Serie B last season, averaging 3.08 goals per game. The southern outfit upped their numbers to 3.27 in the top-flight, but Saturday’s hosts fell to 2.64 due to poor goalscoring record (11 goals in 14 matches).
However, they ended their three-game dry spell with Corini on the bench and I’m positive they will improve their goal tally this weekend, but Lecce should fight back, though, like they always do.
I will take the hosts in safer, DNB market and pick both teams to score. Seven of the last eight Lecce games had goals on both ends.
