Monza are hoping to win again after their last result, the 1-3 Serie B triumph over Salernitana.

It has not been often in recent games where Monza have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Brianzoli have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 9 goals during that time. We will find out if that trend can be sustained into this next match.
Coming into this clash, Monza are undefeated in their last 2 league matches at home.
Since a loss in their previous game against Cittadella in Serie B competition, Lecce and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.

Coming into this meeting, Lecce have not been beaten in their last 10 away league matches. Travelling very well.

Team News: Monza
Christian Gytkjaer (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury) and Eugenio Lamanna (Cruciate Ligament Injury) are not available for Monza boss Cristian Brocchi.
Team News: Lecce
Lecce manager Eugenio Corini has to choose a team with limited availability. Mattia Felici (Unknown Injury), Marcin Listkowski (Unknown Injury) and Claud Adjapong (Achilles tendon rupture) will miss out on this game.
We’re of the opinion that Lecce have the ability to breach the defence of this Monza side, but it is unlikely to be as many as they’ll concede.
We can see a close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Monza by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. There looks to be little in this one.
