Date: Tuesday, 14 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Via del Mare (Lecce).
Lecce is on the verge of relegation this season after only getting promoted this season. Fiorentina is not at a pleasant position in the league lately and the host will try to capitalize on that for the three points.
Lecce vs Fiorentina Match preview
Lecce was on a six-game losing streak in the campaign schedule earlier, with four defeats in it coming after the league restart this season. However, four of those losses had seen both teams score.
The host is unbeaten in their last two matches in the league, following a goalless draw on the road with Cagliari last time out in the campaign. They even had a win at home against Lazio in an earlier clash.
They have 3 wins and 8 losses in their 16 home matches so far. A towering amount of 5 draws over the 3 wins and 23 goals in the same period confirm their lack of holding on to the lead at home.
Fiorentina has only one win in their last eight fixtures in their schedule with two losses in it. Both teams have scored in five of their six matches post lockdown, showing troubles at the back.
They will visit after a 1-1 draw at home with Verona in their last encounter in the league. Only two of their recent five draws have ended as goalless matches.
With 5 wins and 6 losses in their 15 away fixtures in the campaign until now, the visitor does not project an intimidating image for the hosts in the encounter.

Lecce vs Fiorentina Prediction
Lecce rarely flaunt their home ground advantage in the league. The host has only 3 wins so far, but two of those wins have come within the recent five attempts at home. This is backed by their last home win against the table-toppers, Lazio.
Fiorentina is comparatively a better side in the mix this season but their recent fixtures in their schedule saw them dropping points in the clashes. Besides, the visitor lost to the promoted side in the reverse fixture this season at home.
The home win will be a risky call and hence, the double chance favoring Lecce will probably be a suitable option for the punters regarding their recent form in the league. The tip for BTTS with 1.57 odds will be the best bet in the game, considering the chances of both sides in ninety minutes.
