Lecce Preview – Barren spell at home set to continue?

One of those fixtures which can at best be described as a free hit. Very few expect them to get anything from this clash with the champions, who have been in typically scintillating form. So there won’t really be much pressure on this Lecce side (16th – W2 D1 L5, GF9 GA17), which could make them dangerous, although a point or better would count as a major surprise for a club making its Serie A reappearance following a seven year absence.

No win, or even a point for that matter, from any of their opening three matches staged on home soil only emphasises the huge size of the task at hand for 43-year-old coach Fabio Liverani. Hellas Verona (0-1), Napoli (1-4) and Roma (0-1) were all too good for his players at their Stadio Via del Mare in Southern Italy, collecting all seven of their total points thus far from away matches – the latest a very credible, and battling, 2-2 draw at AC Milan.

The performance last time out in Milan was proof that this group of players are a competent bunch on their day, twice coming from a goal behind to draw level and subsequently earn a deserved share of the spoils (xG: MIL 1.68 – 1.43 LEC). Another similarly spirited display would be interesting. It would also appear unlikely, though, on the basis of what they have produced so far at home this season. Although the ‘Giallorossi’ do at least possess a decent track for scoring (5/8 in Serie A).


Paulo Dybala First Goalscorer?



Juventus Preview – Old Lady to be singing for eighth straight match?

The Bianconceri would eventually get the job done in their midweek Champions League game with Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow. However, what was supposed to be a routine evening turned into anything but, with Paulo Dybala’s quick-fire double late into the second half ensuring Juventus successfully overturned an earlier 1-0 deficit to record a 2-1 victory which kept them top of the group.

Victory on Tuesday stretched their current winning run in all competitions to seven, which, as impressive as that may be, is made slightly bizarre by the fact they scored exactly two goals on six separate occasions – including in each of their previous five wins in Serie A. That highlights the efficiency with which this team operates at under Maurizio Sarri, who had his critics initially but appears to have won most of them round after a superb first few months in charge.

Focusing on their Serie A exploits so far, Juventus (1st – W7 D1 L0, GF15 GA7) have only dropped points on the one occasion, when drawing 0-0 in Fiorence with a useful Fiorentina. Seven wins from eight is imperious stuff but sufficient only for a slender one point lead at summit of the league table, as Inter Milan continue to keep them honest in second. Any dropped points here then could be detrimental to their title ambitions – though The Old Lady have lost on just two of ten previous visits to these opponents (W6 D2 L2).


Lecce V Juventus Key Facts:

  • Lecce have collected all seven of their points in Serie A this season away from home, losing three from three at home.
  • Juventus remain unbeaten in Serie A in 2019/20 (W7 D1), winning their past seven competitive games.
  • This will be a first Serie A meeting between the two clubs since 2012. Juventus have, however, won on six of their previous ten visits (W6 D2 L2) to Lecce.


Betting Summary

Lecce were good value for their 2-2 draw against AC Milan at the San Siro a week ago, twice coming from behind to earn what could turn out to be a precious point. Now they welcome the best team in the country to their patch, where they are still to register a point all season after three successive home defeats. The good news, however, is coach Fabio Liverani knows his team are capable of scoring, having witnessed them doing so in five of eight Serie A matches.

Juventus have epitomised ruthless efficiency this season, and this was again in evidence as recently as Tuesday in their come-from-behind win over Lokomotiv Moscow in Turin. Victory was all important, with it being their seventh in a row in all competitions, although just two were by a margin larger than one goal suggesting this may not be the cakewalk many anticipate.

It does almost seem unthinkable that Juventus could drop points in this game, up against a newly promoted team who have shown glimpses of what they are capable of but have still contrived to taste defeat on all three occasions as the home side. The visitors are enjoying a five game winning run in Serie A, four of which featured both teams on the scoresheet. That particular bet, therefore, could be a spot of value.
