Venezia vs Lecce
Italian Serie B
Date: Monday, 11 February 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Pierluigi Penzo (Venice).
Fourth placed Lecce have an excellent chance to close the gap with Brescia for Serie B title when they visit Venezia this Monday.
Fabio Liverani’s men are a promoted side, but they are well poised for automatic promotion to Serie A if they can carry on the momentum for final 2 months.
Lecce have proved to be a tricky custodian for both home and away teams, especially when having scored in 18 of 20 league games played so far.
Venezia are sitting at 12th on the log and struggled for results off late. They won just 1 of their last 7 games, but still manage to produce some decent displays at home turf.
Walter Zenga’s men were beaten just once at home since September, therefore expect a close battle at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo.
Venezia vs Lecce Head-to-head
Lecce are unbeaten in the last 7 h2h meetings with Venezia, 4 wins & 3 draws.
All their previous three meetings at Venezia’s home ground are draws.
Six of their 7 h2h meetings saw both teams scoring and five of them recorded 2.5 goals.
Venezia vs Lecce Prediction
Venezia are a capable home team despite sitting at the bottom half of overall league table. They were beaten just twice at home this season and hold a excellent scoring record here, failed to score just once in 12 home games this season.
Lecce are genuine promotion candidates and their away form is excellent as well. The combined analysis clearly suggests a close battle at the Stadio Pierluigi Penzo, considering Salentians scored in all expect one away game this season.
Thus, our first pick is both teams to score in the match.
Now, stats from their last three h2h matches at this ground combined Lecce’s away record, backing the visitors to avoid a defeat is a decent and safe alternate.
