Today's Predictions for Verona vs Lecce

Lecce are unbeaten in three games ahead of their tussle with relegation candidates Verona in Serie A on Saturday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Lecce Double Chance

Lecce showcased their famous fighting spirit last weekend when they held big-hitters AC Milan to a 2-2 draw, pushing their own unbeaten run to three games since the mid-season break in the process. After a positive string of results against Lazio, Spezia and Milan, Lecce should be in confident mood ahead of their trip to play a Verona outfit that has recorded victories in just two of their 18 league assignments in 2022/23, and our first prediction recommends siding with Lecce in the generously-priced double chance market here.

Both Teams to Score

Verona’s results at home have been poor this season but although they have lost seven out of nine fixtures at the Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi, I Mastini generally find a way to impact the scoresheet. Indeed, they have managed to notch in all but two of their matches at home this term, despite losing most of the time. 67% of those contests featured goals at both ends and a stake on BTTS could reap dividends again this weekend when Verona host Lecce.

Verona vs Lecce Team News & Injuries

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

Verona

Verona lost narrowly to Inter (1-0) in their last outing, though they did well to keep the score down having conceded after just three minutes at San Siro. Still, the team is currently in the relegation zone with just nine points from eighteen games and they are seven points behind the first team outside of the zone, so they will need to do a lot better than they did so far if they want to have a chance to survive this season.

Marco Davide Faraoni is considered doubtful in midfield this weekend while attacker Simone Verdi will miss the next couple of games with a muscle problem.

Predicted Lineup for Verona: Montipo, Dawidowicz, Hien, Ceccherini – Depaoli, Ilic, Tameze, Doig – Kallon, Lazovic, Duric

Lecce

Lecce raced into a two-goal lead when they hosted Milan at the weekend and though they were eventually pegged back, they would have gained confidence from a competitive performance. At the moment, Lecce is close to the middle of the standings and, more importantly, they are eleven points ahead of their upcoming opponent Verona, the first team in the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, defenders Marin Pongračić and Kastriot Dermaku are both in the treatment room for Lecce at present.

Predicted Lineup for Lecce: Falcone – Gendrey, Baschirotto, Umtiti, Pezzella – Blin, Hjulmand, Gonazlez – Strefezza, Di Francesco, Colombo

Player to Watch – Morten Hjulmand

Morten Hjulmand is Lecce’s main midfield enforcer and the Dane was one of the best players on the pitch in the weekend’s 2-2 draw with AC Milan. The 23-year-old broke up play with three tackles and four interceptions against the Rossoneri, though Lecce fans won’t have long to enjoy his all-action displays if the transfer rumours linking Hjulmand to Southampton hold weight.
