In an upcoming Serie A face-off, Juventus is set to host Lecce at the Allianz Stadium and it’s time for some online betting! The recent performance of both teams has been noteworthy. Juventus faced a setback in their last match, succumbing to a 4-2 defeat against Sassuolo. Despite Federico Chiesa’s commendable effort to level the score in the 78th minute, Juventus couldn’t hold their ground.
On the other hand, Lecce has been on a roll, maintaining an unbeaten streak for five consecutive league games. Their latest victory was a 1-0 triumph over Genoa, with Rémi Oudin netting the decisive goal. Notably, Genoa played with a man down from the 36th minute. Lecce’s current form places them among the top two teams that remain unbeaten after five Serie A matches this season, sharing the spotlight with Inter Milan.
Historically, Juventus and Lecce have faced each other 42 times across various competitions. Juventus has had the upper hand with 28 victories, while Lecce has managed to outplay Juventus on four occasions. The remaining 10 matches concluded in a draw. Juventus has been particularly dominant in recent encounters, remaining unbeaten in the last six matches against Lecce. The previous season saw Juventus clinching both home and away victories against Lecce.
However, Lecce’s away record against Juventus isn’t that impressive. They’ve managed to secure a win only once at the Allianz Stadium, which dates back to 2004. Yet, Lecce’s recent away form has been promising, as they haven’t faced a defeat since their 2-1 loss to Juventus last May.
Team News: Juventus will be without Mattia De Sciglio due to an ACL injury, and Alex Sandro is also expected to miss the match due to a hamstring injury sustained during training. Lecce will be missing Lameck Banda and Kastriot Dermaku due to injuries. However, Federico Baschirotto will be back in action after serving his suspension, strengthening Lecce’s defense under the guidance of Roberto D’Aversa, the Serie A Coach of the Month for August.
Match Predictions: Given Juventus’s strong track record against Lecce and considering Lecce’s current unbeaten run, the match will be tough and even if a draw might feel tempting we believe Juve will get away from this with all 3 points and a tight one goal victory, 1-0 Juventus!
