Monza vs Lecce Lineups and Last Match

Monza

Monza made the trip to Atalanta before the international break where Palladino's men were comfortably beaten by their hosts. Atalanta went in at the break two goals to the good and added a third goal shortly after the hour mark in a game that Monza offered very little in the final third. Danilo D'Ambrosio is the main injury concern for the home side this weekend due to a sprained ankle.

Predicted Lineup – Di Gregorio (GK), Caldirola, Marí, Izzo, Birindelli, Gagliardini, Pessina, Colpani, Caprari, Ciurria & Mota 

Lecce

Lecce maintained their positive start to the campaign with a 2-0 victory at home to Salernitana last time out. A goal as early as the 6th minute from KJrstovic set the home side on their way to all 3pts and a stoppage-time penalty from Strefezza made sure of the victory. Lecce have a clean bill of health and no suspended players ahead of their trip to Monza this weekend, another reason why we believe the visitors will get something out of this game.

Predicted Lineup – Falcone (GK), Baschirotto, Pongračić, Gendrey, Gallo, Ramadani, Rafia, Banda, Kaba, Krstović & Almqvist

Player to Watch: Lameck Banda

Lecce's 22-year-old midfielder has made a very bright start to the season, claiming two assists in the opening three league games.

Banda only joined Lecce last season where he made 36 appearances in total, 17 of them as a substitute. The young midfielder chipped in with two goals in his opening season and has already created two goals in the 2023/24 campaign so there is a lot of hope and expectation surrounding the talented box-to-box midfielder.

We're backing Banda to impress for Lecce this weekend in a game we have backed the visitors to come away with at least a point and possibly all three.
