Juventus vs Lecce
Italy – Serie A
Date: Friday, 26 June 2020
Kick-off at 20:45 UK/21:45 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin).
The loss in Coppa Italia final has not turned Juventus players’ spirits down in Serie A this season. The visit from the promoted side will not likely be a challenge for Bonucci and Co. at Turin.
Juventus vs Lecce Match preview
Juventus have won their recent four league matches in a row, scoring exactly two goals each time. They will host after a 0-2 win on the road, against Bologna, last time out in the campaign.
The Old Lady has lost none of their home matches in the contest so far after 13 appearances. The host has scored 31 goals by now and conceded 10 goals in the same period.
Lecce is on a three-game losing streak in the league, conceding an average 5 goals per match within that triple loss, following a 1-4 loss at home against AC Milan in their prior clash in the schedule.
Their league tours haven’t been successful as they have only 4 wins in their 13 trips so far, and 7 of the remaining 9 winless games have ended in a loss.
In the reverse fixture, the Wolves stood firm at home against Juve’s 6 shots on target and 14 corner kicks won in ninety minutes. With just 32% ball possession, they drew the match with a 1-1 scoreline.
But things will be different when playing at Turin. Juve has conceded in only one of their recent five matches at home. We can expect a lively second half of the game at Allianz Stadium.
Juventus vs Lecce Head-to-head (h2h)
- Their last two meetings in 2012 and 2019 ended in a draw.

- The host is unbeaten at home in their recent six clashes since 2005.
Juventus vs Lecce Prediction
With the CDR trio (Cristiano-Dybala-Ramsey) getting involved in 7 of their recent 8 goals in their league schedule, expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair at Allianz.
The visitor has left the back door open in most of their recent fixtures (15 goals conceded in 3 matches) in the campaign.
The tip for over 2.5 goals from the goals area with 1.40 odds will be a suitable option for the punters in the match for decent returns. It also supports the chance of Juventus leading the scoresheet by the time the fat lady sings.
The home win in full-time is at low odds in the game, and considering the possibility of a high-scoring affair, the tip for Juventus to win with a -1 handicap will be the best bet for the punters.
