Lecce vs Verona
Italian Serie A
Date: 7 May 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale Via del Mare (Lecce).

Stakes will be high on Sunday night on South as Lecce and Verona take on each other in a massive relegation six-pointer at Stadio Comunale Via del Mare.

Lecce are 16th in the league table and they sit four points above 18th-placed Verona who are in the danger zone.

Anything but a loss would work for the hosts, especially knowing they have another six-pointer against Spezia upcoming in two weeks.

Lecce did improve their form in the last couple of games. They saw off Udinese 1-0 last weekend in the previous home outing before putting up a very strong resistance in a tight away loss at Juventus on Wednesday evening.

Head coach Marco Baroni can be thrilled with the performance his men have put up four days ago in Turin, registering as many as five attempts on goal against the likes of I Bianconeri on the occasion.

Lecce will fancy their chances of backing up such a display here against the leaky Verona back line because I Gialloblu enter this off the back of a demolishing 0-6 defeat to Inter Milan.

Verona missed a big chance to move into the safe zone with a dismal showing in the 1-1 draw at Cremonese last weekend and they only made the atmosphere in the dressing room worse with the catastrophe in the midweek’s tie against I Nerazzurri.

Lecce vs Verona Head-to-head

  • Verona have been the dominant force in the recent H2H tradition between these two teams as they saw off Lecce in each of the previous three encounters.
  • Lecce have failed to find the back of the net in any of these three losses, including this season’s 2-0 defeat in January this year at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
  • Lecce, however, have four wins, two draws, and two losses in the last eight home outings against Verona.

Lecce vs Verona Prediction

We expect electric atmosphere in and around Stadio Comunale Via del Mare on Sunday night and we believe the crowd will do enough to help Lecce beat the struggling Verona side and make a huge step towards securing the elite tier status for the next season.

We will go for the home win pick at the 2.20 odds as the main pick while you can alternatively back Lecce to score two or more goals past the leaky Verona defense at the attractive 2.50 odds.
