Fiorentina vs Lecce: Prediction

La Viola failed to bounce back from an embarrassing 2-5 defeat to Cagliari and lost their second road game on the trot. This time around, they fell to a narrow defeat at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi to a newcomer, Hellas Verona.

Sitting at 10th position on the Serie A ladder, Vincenzo Montella’s side will be looking to record their third home win of the season when they take on a challenging Lecce side.

Fiorentina have W-D-L record of 2-2-2 at Artemtio Franchi this season. They’re scoring and shipping same amount of goals at this venue – 1.33 per game.

Aleksa Terzic will be evaluated before the game, German Pezzella should make the starting XI.

The Salentini played out yet another entertaining 2-2 draw at home. After sharing the spoils with Sassuolo, Fabio Liverani’s boys came back from two goals down to earn a valuable point against Cagliari thanks to a left-back, Marco Calderoni, who scored a stoppage-time equalizer – the same guy got them a road point at San Siro not so long ago.

With 11 points to their name, they’re currently 17th in the standings, just above relegation-threatened sides.

Lecce racked up eight points from seven games away from home, scoring 1.57 goals per bout, whilst conceding 2.29 per match.

The guests will be without suspended Lapadula; Falco, Babacar and Mecciarello will be evaluated.

The Florence-based outfit will be at full strength on Saturday – Pulgar, Castrovilli and Chiesa are back in the mix after missing the Verona game. Those three have bagged 8 of Viola’s 18 goals this season.

I can see them winning this one at iconic Artemio Franchi, but I do not trust them to keep a clean sheet.

They’ve conceded ten goals in last five league games and Lecce have found the back of the net in six of their seven away fixtures.
