Match Preview

  • Lecce have lost six Serie A (SA) matches in a row, conceding 4+ goals in five. It therefore comes as no surprise to see that Lecce possess the worst defence in SA, with 2.33 goals conceded on average per game. This rises to 4.17 across the previous six.
  • At home, Lecce have conceded a league-high 32 goals in 15 matches (W2, D5, L8), with 13 (40.63%) of them arriving during the last three (W/D0, L3). All three saw the opponent netting first, which has been the case in 12 (80%) of Lecce’s SA home matches this season.
  • With two losses from four SA matches since the restart, Lazio need a miracle to win their first title since 2000. All four have seen over 2.5 goals scored, with Lazio conceding exactly three times in both losses. The opener has been scored inside the first half hour each time, with Lazio conceding it in the last three.
  • Lazio have won three (L1) of their last four on the road, with the opener arriving inside the first 10 minutes in the last three (W2, L1). Regardless, Lazio have scored 12 (48%) of their 25 SA away goals within the 31’-45’ and 76’-90+’ periods of play.
  • Players to watch: Marco Mancosu has converted a second-half penalty in each of the last three losses that have seen Lecce find the net.
  • Lazio talisman Ciro Immobile has been sorely missed of late, with Lazio winning each of the last 15 SA matches he’s netted in.
  • Stat attack: Lecce have won the race to three corners in just one of their previous 15 SA home matches.
  • Though underdogs in this clash, Lecce are yet to lose here after scoring first (W2, D1).
  • The opener has been scored in the 5th minute twice across Lazio’s last four SA matches.
