Sassuolo vs Lecce Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for Italian Serie A match on Saturday, 4 July 2020. Kick off 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET at the Mapei Stadium (Reggio Emilia).
Sassuolo is not in the fear of falling into the relegation zone this season. Lecce, on the other hand, hasn’t been comfortable with the league after promotion and it will reflect in their visit.
The Neroverdi are in superb scoring form and this helped them to three match unbeaten run since restarting with a 1-4 loss to Atalanta. Back-to-back 3-3 draws followed and round up the excellent spirit with the 3-1 thrashing of Fiorentina on Wednesday.
Sitting at 12th in the table with 37 points, they are 8-point away from European qualification spot.
Lecce is a strong contender for relegation this season, with a five-game losing streak in their league schedule later this season.
Their previous clash met with a 1-2 loss at home against Sampdoria, and three of the last five fixtures saw them score despite the losses.
Roberto De Zerbi pushed his team forward to 6 wins from their 14 home matches so far.
They had 6 losses in the same period, and only one of the losses came within the last five attempts as the host.
Meanwhile, Fabio Liverani and his men had 8 losses in their 14 away fixtures in the campaign. Four of their last five tours in the league ended in a straight defeat.
With such a terrible form on the road, the odds will probably be against the promoted side.

Sassuolo vs Lecce Prediction
Sassuolo has a brighter form in the campaign when compared to the visitor. They also enjoy a home ground advantage in the league against a poor away side.
Looking at these stats, we can expect the host to break the deadlock between these sides in their h2h clashes.
The home win in full-time with 1.50 odds will be the best bet for the punters in the clash.
Based on their reverse fixture result this season, we can expect a high-scoring affair. The tip for over 2.5 goals will come in handy for the ninety minutes.
Since both teams have seen the back of the net in two of their three meetings, the tip for a BTTS with 1.60 odds will be a suitable option for the punters in the game.
The host will probably be the major contributor in goals and the tip for over 1.5 goals by Sassuolo at 1.44 odds justify that stat in the clash.
