Player to watch – Nikola Krstovic

No player on either side has scored more than seven league goals this term which is partly the reason why both have struggled. Nikola Krstovic is perhaps the most likely source of a goal here with the 24 year old scoring seven in 27 starts in the Italian top flight this season.

A streaky season

Krstovic made a flying start with four goals in the opening eight games, but then scored just once between matchdays nine and 33. Lecce will be hoping he’s back in form now though with the Montenegrin scoring late goals in their last two games.
