Lecce
Lecce
LWWDDL

Lecce will be looking for an improved result here following a 0-2 Serie A defeat in their last game at the hands of Udinese.

In that game, Lecce managed 65% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. For their opponents, Udinese had 16 attempts on goal with 3 on target. Lorenzo Lucca (36') and Lazar Samardžić (85') scored for Udinese.

In their prior six fixtures, Luca Gotti's Lecce have found the net a total of 6 times resulting in an average number of goals scored per match equal to 1.

Ahead of this clash, Lecce haven’t won at home in the past 2 league games.

Atalanta

Following on from being defeated in their last game at the hands of Juventus in Coppa Italia competition, Atalanta will be hoping to turn things around here.

In that match, Atalanta managed 66% possession and 13 shots on goal with 0 of them on target. Juventus got 9 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Dušan Vlahović (4') was the scorer for Juventus.

A sequence of outstanding showings from the Atalanta defenders has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their last 6 outings combined. During the same period of time, their forwards have scored 10. That aside, we will just have to wait and see if the trend will continue on in this match or not.

Coming into this meeting, Atalanta have not been beaten in their last 2 away league matches.

↔️ Head to head

An examination of their past head to head meetings going back to 12/02/2012 shows us that Lecce have won 2 of these games and Atalanta 3, with the number of drawn results standing at 1.

A sum of 20 goals were scored between them during those clashes, with 7 of them from Giallorossi and 13 coming from La Dea. That’s an average goals per game figure of 3.33.

The last league meeting between these sides was Serie A match day 18 on 30/12/2023 which finished with the scoreline of Atalanta 1-0 Lecce.

That time, Atalanta managed 62% possession and 17 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Their only player on the scoresheet was Ademola Lookman (58').

At the other end, Lecce had 15 shots on goal with 2 of them on target.

The match was refereed by Ermanno Feliciani.

📋 Team News: Lecce

Mohamed Kaba (Cruciate ligament injury), Kastriot Dermaku (Cruciate ligament injury), Lameck Banda (Knee surgery) and Jeppe Corfitzen (Cruciate ligament tear) will not be able to play for Lecce manager Luca Gotti.

In all likelihood, Giallorossi will possibly kick off with a 4-4-2 formation this time and select Wladimiro Falcone, Valentin Gendrey, Federico Baschirotto, Marin Pongracic, Antonino Gallo, Remi Oudin, Alexis Blin, Ylber Ramadani, Patrick Dorgu, Nikola Krstovic and Roberto Piccoli.

📰 Team News: Atalanta

Atalanta manager Gian Gasperini has to currently contend with reduced team options. Sead Kolasinac (muscular problems), Emil Holm (Calf problems) and Marten de Roon (Hamstring muscle injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. Teun Koopmeiners is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

We are inclined to think that La Dea will likely utilise a 3-4-3 lineup, settling for Marco Carnesecchi, Rafael Toloi, Berat Djimsiti, Giorgio Scalvini, Hans Hateboer, Mario Pasalic, Michel Ndary Adopo, Mitchel Bakker, Aleksey Miranchuk, Gianluca Scamacca and Ademola Lookman.

🔮 Prediction

For this match, we think that Lecce should get enough chances to put a goal past this Atalanta lineup, but one goal probably won’t be as many as the goals that they could concede.

Therefore, we’re predicting a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 advantage for Atalanta at the end of the match. Let’s see what happens here.
