Lecce vs Juventus: Match Preview and Prediction
Lecce vs Juventus: Juventus had won six straight competitions before this match. Dusan Vlahovic scored twice in the first half of last week’s pounding of Sassuolo in Turin. Lecce had scored one in four league games.
Juventus defeated Sassuolo 3-0 at Allianz Stadium in Matchday 20’s last game on Tuesday to continue their hot streak. Five days earlier, Dusan Vlahovic’s first-half brace and Federico Chiesa’s late goal gave Juve the win.
The Bianconeri are again two points behind Inter Milan. They have six straight wins and 17 straight unblemished games across competitions. Max Allegri’s team will play Lecce at Stadio Comunale Via del Mare on Sunday evening in Gameweek No. 21.
Just one point in the last four games dropped Lecce to 13th in the Serie A. They lost 0-1 against Lazio on Sunday, deepening their attacking crisis. Roberto D’Aversa’s team had only one goal in four Serie A games.
However, Lecce did better at home than away this season. They have lost only two of 10 league matches at Stadio Comunale Via del Mare. Will their home record be enough to beat the championship contenders?
Lecce vs Juventus: Betting Analysis
Juventus dominated the recent head-to-head record, defeating Lecce in all four of their meetings. The run includes Bianconeri’s 1-0 victory in Turin in September of last year.
In the last eight meetings between Lecce and Juventus, there have only been two games with three goals or more. Lecce has struggled to score lately, managing only one goal in their last four league outings. Juventus enters this game fresh off convincing victories over Frosinone and Sassuolo without allowing a point.
We have enough to conclude that it is worthwhile to support the away win selection at 1.72 odds. Alternatively, you can go with the 2.62 odds on in-form Dusan Vlahovic to score at any point for Bianconeri. The Serbian forward thrashed Sassuolo on Tuesday night, completing a brace in the first half.
Who will win the match between Lecce and Juventus?
Given these two clubs, we believe Lecce will have plenty of opportunities to score against Juventus, even though one goal is probably not going to be as many as they will give up. For this reason, we anticipate a close match that ends with Juventus winning.
