Lecce vs Brescia Match preview
The 2-1 loss on the road against Genoa last time out was Lecce’s sixth loss within the last 8 matches in their campaign schedule post lockdown.
It has to be noted that four of their last nine defeats have come at home. However, their only win in the last ten league clashes has also come in their attempt as the host.
The host has only 3 wins in their 17 home matches until now. But they will be glad to play at home since one of their recent two home matches turned in their favor in the league.
In the meantime, Brescia has also won only 3 of their 17 away fixtures so far in the campaign. But they have been winless for the past nine fixtures on the road.
Surprisingly, the reverse fixture this season saw Brescia using their home ground advantage to win the clash with a 3-0 scoreline. Now that they are visiting, Lecce will have a chance to return the favor.

The host will not enjoy any ground advantage as same as the visitors, having nothing to boast in their league tour records.
The host has a better chance of getting out of the relegation zone with four fixtures remaining in their schedule for this season. The safest bet in the clash will be a draw no bet over Lecce with 1.40 odds to yield decent returns for the punters.
