Under 2.5 Goals

Both Lecce and Spezia are fighting tooth and nail to secure their top flight survival, and their clash on Sunday in Serie A is the very definition of a relegation six-pointer. When the teams last met in January, they shared the spoils following a tense 0-0 draw and margins could be similarly slim in Sunday’s rematch. Both defences will be determined to avoid making potentially fatal mistakes, and the first of today’s Lecce vs Spezia predictions forecasts little action in what could be another chess-like battle.

Half Time Result – Draw

Drawing from the same logic, bettors should consider backing a draw in the half time result market when Lecce host fellow relegation contenders Spezia on Sunday. We expect both teams to adopt a cautious approach in what could prove a pivotal fixture in the race for survival and it could take time for proceeding to warm up. 15 of Spezia’s 35 Serie A tussles this term have been all square at the interval and their latest test could follow suit.

Lecce vs Spezia News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Lecce vs Spezia lineups and team news for Sunday’s fixture below.

Lecce

Marin Pongracic is out injured for Lecce while fellow defender Kastriot Dermaku is rated as doubtful. Further forward, Lameck Banda is suspended and won't be involved. Lecce earned an unexpected point at Lazio (2-2) last time out, though they came within a whisker of winning before the conceded a 94th-minute equalizer.

Predicted Lineup for Lecce: Falcone – Gendrey, Baschirotto, Umtiti, Gallo – Blin, Hjumland, Oudin – Strefezza, Ceesay, Colombo

Spezia

João Moutinho has a muscle complaint and is a doubt again this week, while Daniel Maldini and Emil Holm are both ruled out. Petar Zovko has a muscle problem and is unlikely to join the matchday squad while Simone Bastoni and Jacopo Sala could also be absent. Kelvin Amian Adou is serving a ban and won't play either after he picked up a yellow card in last weekend’s 2-0 win against AC Milan.

Predicted Lineup for Spezia: Dragowski – Wisniewski, Ampadu, Nikolaou – Zurkowski, Ekdal, Esposito, Bourabia, Reca – Gyasi, M'Bala Nzola

Player to Watch – Remi Oudin

Remi Oudin scored a brace in Lecce’s 2-2 draw at Lazio last weekend and remarkably, the midfielder hadn’t notched a single goal in Serie A this season before that. The 26-year-old’s confidence should be at its highest point of the campaign following his double strike and Oudin could be a key performer again on Sunday.
