Torino vs Lecce
Italy – Serie A
Date: Monday, 16 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico di Torino (Turin).
Lecce had joined the competition just this last summer and is struggling to keep up with the intense demands of the top division. They had the misfortune to open against Inter of all teams, and expectedly were dealt a tough 4-0 loss on the road, and then followed it up with a 0-1 win at home, against Verona.
As such, they are now the only contingent in the league to yet open their goal-scoring account, and with them on the road this weekend too, things are looking quite bleak for fans of the unit.
Opponents Torino will be eager to host this incoming, struggling outfit. The home team had failed to settle on a direct Europa League spot the last time around and seems determined to improve upon it this time around.
Despite taking on the tough Atalanta, and the competitive Sassuolo, they boast of a 100% win-record, and have already scored five goals in total. Now, with them enjoying home advantage against a newly-promoted squad, the players will surely target to extend their winning run in the tournament to three.
Torino vs Lecce Head-to-head (h2h)
- In the last 21 years, not once has Torino failed to find the back of the net.
- Four of the five former matches saw Lecce conceding two or more goals.
- The hosts scored a total of nine goals from the previous three encounters at this venue.
- Only once has an away win been posted in their series of h2h encounters in the last 20 years.
Torino vs Lecce Prediction
The hosts for the day have been one amongst the best in the top tier for quite some time, while their counterparts were not even present in the competition last time around. Moreover, Lecce is on the road this Monday, and has lost both their two games so far this campaign, while failing to score in both – the only squad to do so.
On the other hand, their opposite number won both their opening two ties and even recorded a win on the road against one of the best of the lot, Atalanta.
Finally, h2h clashes in general too have been kind to the ones that enjoyed home advantage, and with Torino resolved to better their performance of last time, the tag of the favorites easily go to them.
Rightfully, we’re in line to witness a great display by the hosts.
