Salernitana vs Lecce Match Preview and Prediction

Salernitana vs Lecce: Salernitana has lost nine and drawn two of their last eleven games in all competitions. Luca Gotti’s appointment prepares Lecce for a management turnaround. Lecce had won five, tied one, and lost one of their seven encounters against Salernitana.

Six days prior, Lecce suffered a 0-1 home defeat to Verona, intensifying their current bad record. The straw that broke the camel’s back was the loss in a six-point relegation playoff. The owners of the squad made the decision to split with head coach Roberto D’Aversa. On Monday, they announced Luca Gotti as the new manager.

On Saturday afternoon, Gotti will arrive on the Lecce bench for the first time. His squad plays the rock-bottom Salernitana at Stadio Arechi on Matchday No. 29. It will be a fantastic chance for a new manager to make a splash. In nine Serie A games prior, Lecce had seven losses. The red zone is only one point away, so they really need to win this game.

However, Salernitana has played in the Italian second level. The team’s performance didn’t improve after Fabio Liverami’s arrival a month earlier. Salernitana had nine losses and two draws in 11 games across all competitions. Their last loss was 2-4 to Cagliari seven days ago.

Salernitana vs Lecce: Betting Analysis

Lecce has won this meeting more often. I had five victories, one tie, and one loss in seven matches with Salernitana before this. Lecce defeated Salernitana 2-0 in September last season. Three of the previous five Lecce-Salernitana matches had fewer than three goals.

We think Lecce will win on Saturday for several reasons, even though neither team has been dominant. According to the league table, Salernitana is far and away the poorest team in the division. The hosts are eleven points behind the safe zone at the bottom of the standings.

Salernitana has lost nine and drawn two in its previous eleven matches across all competitions. Seven days earlier, they lost 2-4 against relegation-threatened Cagliari. Lecce have struggled recently but are keen to start under new manager Luca Gotti. Visitors need points to avoid relegation. They have one point over Frosinone in the red zone. Finally, Lecce has defeated Salernitana five times in seven. Away wins pay 2.50.

Salernitana has the poorest Italian top-flight defense. This season, they’ve allowed 58 goals in 28 league matches. Lecce sent home two or more goals in six of its eight previous Serie A games. The Over 2.5 goals FT pick at 2.10 odds looks good.
