Monza vs Lecce
Italian Serie A
Date: 28 May 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: U-Power Stadium (Monza).
Lecce will travel all the way to the north of the country to take on Monza in search for salvation points in the penultimate Serie A Matchday on Sunday afternoon at U-Power Stadium.
Claiming salvation points is always difficult against an in-form opposition and Monza by all means belong to this category.
Raffaele Palladino’s men are unbeaten in eight consecutive league outings, five of which they have won.
Such a marvelous thread saw them climb to the eighth position in the Serie A table. Monza have a great chance to stay there with a result here against Lecce.
Palladino’s troops saw off Sassuolo 1-2 on the road last Friday via a second-half comeback through goals from Patrick Ciurria and Matteo Pessina.
Monza do not have a talisman in the final third but they are more than capable of producing in the final third and they have significantly improved their defensive displays of late.
Lecce, on the other side, sit only three points above the danger area. They are winless in four consecutive games.
Marco Baroni’s men failed to break the deadlock in a six-pointer against Spezia last weekend, playing only a goalless draw at their Stadio Comunale Via del Mare.
Monza vs Lecce Head-to-head
- These two outfits battled it out in Serie B last season as Lecce claimed two wins over Monza without conceding a single goal in the process.
- This season’s top-flight clash saw them share spoils in a 1-1 stalemate in September last year at Stadio Comunale Via del Mare.
- All but one of eight head to head meetings between Monza and Lecce finished with fewer than three goals scored.
Monza vs Lecce Prediction
Lecce desperately need points to stay safe but Monza will go into this on the back of five wins and three draws in the last eight league rounds. We will trust form in this one and take the whopping 2.50 odds offered for Monza’s win on Sunday.
Monza are very much capable of scoring loads up front and Lecce’s back line is anything but reliable. We are very much tempted to ignore the low-scoring H2H trend and take the attractive 2.30 odds for the Over 2.5 goals FT bet here.
