Today's Predictions for Cremonese vs Lecce

Cremonese have lost seven of their last nine league assignments ahead of their clash with Lecce in Serie A on Saturday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Lecce Draw no Bet

Rock bottom Cremonese are still winless in Serie A after 20 games of the campaign and after a run of five defeats in seven matches in the division, they can be opposed again when they host Lecce. Cremonese’s midweek Coppa Italia quarter-final against Roma in midweek will have taken its toll on the team’s energy levels too, making their task this weekend even tougher. The strugglers did hold Lecce to a 1-1 draw earlier in the season however, so some caution is advised and our first prediction recommends a stake on the visitors in the draw no bet market.

Under 2.5 Goals

Cremonese have scored only 15 times in 20 Serie A fixtures in 2022/23 and they lack the firepower in the final third to improve on that meagre output on Saturday. Lecce have been averaging less than one goal per game themselves in the Italian top tier however, while both goals in their meeting with Cremonese earlier in the campaign were hit from the penalty spot. It’s safe to expect a low-scoring tussle when they meet again this weekend and backing under 2.5 goals could be an option to consider.

Cremonese vs Lecce Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Saturday’s Serie A clash between Cremonese and Lecce below.

Cremonese

Cremonese have an empty treatment room at present and they have reported no fresh injuries this week. In their last Serie A test, the relegation candidates were beaten 2-1 by Inter Milan, while their cup adventure ended in midweek with defeat at Jose Mourinho's Roma.

Predicted Lineup for Cremonese: Carnesecchi – Bianchetti, Chiriches, Vasquez – Sernicola, Benassi, Castagnetti, Meite, Valeri – Okereke, Ciofani

Lecce

Defenders Marin Pongračić and Kastriot Dermaku are both out injured for Lecce, though they should be back in a couple of weeks. Lecce are down in 15th spot in Serie A following back-to-back defeats against Verona and Salernitana. Head Coach Marco Baroni will want to see an improved performance this weekend.

Predicted Lineup for Lecce: Falcone – Gendrey, Baschirotto, Umtiti, Pezzella – Blin, Hjulmand, Maleh – Oudin, Strefezza, Colombo

Player to Watch – Gabriel Strefezza

Attacker Gabriel Strefezza scored his sixth Serie A goal of the season for Lecce in their loss at home to Salernitana last time out and though his strike was ultimately a consolation, the 25-year-old can be pleased with his work. The Brazilian should be Lecce’s biggest danger man again this weekend.
