Lecce vs Juventus: Prediction

Lecce welcome the reigning Italian champions Juventus to Stadio Comunale Via Del Mare on Saturday. They are currently occupying 16th position in the Serie A standings with two wins, one draw and five losses. The Salentini’s last week’s trip to San Siro ended in an entertaining 2-2 stalemate. The left back Marco Calderoni secured a road point with a stoppage-time equalizer.

Everyone bar Giannelli Imbula, who will be evaluated before the game, are fit to play.

The Bianconeri come into this game on the back of a 2-1 win over Lokomotiv Moscow in the Champions League. The in-form Juve extended their winning streak across competitions to 7 games thanks to a Paulo Dybala’s late brace. Juventus are topping the Serie A standings with 22 points – they’ve won seven games and drew one – vs Fiorentina on the road.

Chiellini and Pjaca are long-term abstentees, De Sciglio and Douglas Costa are questionable for the trip down south.

The Salentini are one of the Serie A most ‘overish’ sides with an average of 3.25 goals on their games. Lecce are doing much better on the road, though. They have W-D-L record of 0-0-3 at Via Del Mare stadium. Fabio Liverani’s men are scoring 0.33 goals per game at this venue, whilst conceding 2 per match.

Juventus, 3-1-0 away from home, have an average of 2.75 goals on their games. Maurzio Sarri has three world-class strikers at this disposal and we should see an increase in their away numbers. So far, they’re averaging 1.25 goal scored per game.

The hosts are spirited but limited, and I can see Juventus winning this one. However, odds are just way too low for my taste, so I will go for the same bet I had in Juve – Bologna game.

Five of seven Juventus wins in the league had BTTS – Yes and they have failed to keep a clean sheet against Loko as well. With an attacking mindset and Chiellini-less backline, the Bianconeri tend to concede.
