Lecce vs Pescara
Italy Serie B
Date: Sunday, 31 March 2019
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Stadio Comunale Via del Mare.
Demolishing Ascoli 7-0 in the previous round was surely a big morale booster for Lecce. This team is going to play a couple of crucial matches in the next five weeks after which we are going to find out if there is a chance for comeback to Serie A.
Squad from Comunale Via del Mare is hosting 5th placed Pescara this Sunday, which is one of the most interesting duels in 29th round. Both teams are positioned really high and both are chasing the first two spots on the table.
High number of goals conceded on the road is the main reason why Lecce is not Serie B leader. They allowed 25 goals in 12 away trips, but the stats at this stadium are completely different. 13 matches took place at home – 8 wins, 4 draws and only one loss with decent 26-12 goal difference. Attacking duo La Mantia & Mancosu has produced 22 goals so far and will represent a huge threat for the visitors.
Pescara on the other hand rarely win matches away from their fans. So far they had 14 games on the road, managing to win only three, while losing five. They scored 11 goals less than Lecce so far, so it makes sense to see home team marked as favorites.
Lecce vs Pescara: Head-to-head

That was the case in the previous meeting as well when Pescara took 4-2 win in late 2018.
The last three head to head meetings ended with BTTS and at least three goals.
