The easternmost and southernmost club in Italy, Lecce, creates problems for everyone. And Juventus are performing very poorly on the road. Can Allegri count on three points here?
Lecce is now showing quite predictable results in their performance. This season the team returned to the elite of Italian soccer, and one could hardly expect Lecce to start showing very good results. So actually it turns out that the team is now alternating defeats and draws, 5 draws, 5 defeats, and only one victory at the end of 11 rounds. Lecce is a grass-roots team, they try to dry their opponents, and thus cling at least to the draw results. All 11 matches with Lecce finished with the total ТМ(3,5). This result is a compliment to the defense, which has never fallen apart this season, and has not conceded more than 2 goals per game.As for the upcoming game, the home team probably will not betray itself and just dry the game against a top contender, hoping for a final score like 0:0 or 1:1.
Juventus have absolutely nothing to praise right now, the team is already 10 points behind за to the 1/8 finals ahead of schedule… But now we are talking about the national championship match, and we need to talk about the course Turin has taken in this particular tournament. And the team’s course is very bleak… Now the situation is a little better for Juve, and at least they were able to win against second-rate opponents. Despite Juventus’ current low 8th place, the Turin team has one of the best defenses in the current championship, and in 11 games Juventus have conceded only 7 goals. And it shows that Juventus need to improve their attacking game, and it should go much more promising. But in terms of attacking, the Turin team is still quite weak, and the goals scored by Juventus is not easy.
We would not say that it is safe to bet on a clean win for the guests. After all, Lecce knows how to dry the game, and given the not the highest quality of Juventus attacking game – the guests may have some problems here. That’s actually what I’m going to choose: X2+TM(3.5). The goal show is unlikely to happen here, and there’s not much faith in the home team’s victory either.
