Fiorentina vs Lecce Italian Serie A Predictions by LeagueLane

Fiorentina vs Lecce
Italian Serie A
Date: 19 March 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence).

Fiorentina will be searching for their fourth consecutive Serie A victory on Sunday afternoon when they host Lecce in Gameweek No 27 at Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Head coach Vincenzo Italiano can be pleased with his team’s recent form because I Viola have produced quite regularly at both ends of the pitch in the last several weeks.

Fiorentina dispatched Cremonese 0-2 on the road seven days ago to climb to 11th position in the Serie A table.

Italiano’s men allowed just one goal in the previous three league affairs and we fancy their chances of maintaining such a tremendous defensive run here against Lecce.

The visitors have suddenly become toothless offensively in the last couple of weeks. They have failed to find the back of the net in three consecutive Serie A affairs.

Marco Baroni’s men failed to register more than a single shot on target in a 0-2 home defeat at the hands of Torino seven days ago.

Lecce have also failed to score in three of the previous five league matches on the road and they have dropped to 15th place in the league standings after the aforementioned three-loss streak.

Baroni’s men are still on a healthy eight-point distance from Verona in the danger zone, but a potential continuation of a losing thread may put their top-flight status in jeopardize.

Fiorentina vs Lecce Head-to-head

  • The teams have a win, a draw, and a loss each in the previous three head to head encounters.
  • Fiorentina won five, drew one, and lost four of the last ten home outings against Lecce.
  • All but one of the previous eight head to head meetings between these rivals finished with fewer than three goals scored.

Fiorentina vs Lecce Prediction

Lecce have been struggling for goals lately as Fiorentina conceded only once in the previous three league wins. I Viola also kept their net untouched in the home win over Sivasspor in the UEFA Europa Conference League R16 tie.

We will back the home win to nil pick at the 2.50 odds. You can also try with the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the 1.72 odds knowing that Lecce have also been fairly solid at the back of late, despite their losing run.

Fiorentina vs Lecce Betting Tips

  • Fiorentina to win to nil @ 2.50 (6/4)
  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.72 (8/11) odd.
