Lecce vs Atalanta
Italian Serie A
Date: 9 November 2022, Wednesday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale Via del Mare (Lecce).

Atalanta lost another big game on Saturday, falling 1-2 at home to Serie A leaders Napoli. They now have two losses in the last three league outings and won’t come into mid-week’s fixture against recently-promoted Lecce in high spirits.

La Dea had an early lead four days ago against Napoli but could not hold on to it, allowing I Partinopei to complete a comeback even before the half-time break.

Gianpiero Gasperini’s men are thus still fourth in the league ladder but now sit eight points behind the leaders.

It will be very interesting to see how quick can La Dea recover from the recent losses to Lazio and Napoli.

Atalanta have played very well on travels this season, though, and they will have a strong away record to rely on going into this tie at Stadio Comunale Via del Mare.

Lecce have won just 1 of 13 league matches this season. This lone win did not come in their own backyard where they drew in four of six games this term, though.

Lecce also drew in the previous round of Serie A, playing a 1-1 stalemate away at Udinese on Friday evening.

Marco Baroni’s men now have three losses and two draws in the last five league games. It is worth noting they have found the back of the net just once in the previous three outings in the process.
