Looking at their past form shows that Pescara:
- have not registered a win against Lecce in their previous 2 matches in the league.

Team News: Pescara
Pescara boss Gianluca Grassadonia will be happy not to have any fitness worries at all ahead of this clash owing to a fully healthy group available to select from.
Team News: Lecce
Lecce manager Eugenio Corini has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Kastriot Dermaku (Muscle Injury) and Claud Adjapong (Achilles tendon rupture) are those who can’t be considered.
In our view, Pescara may find it difficult to break down this Lecce team who should score one, at least.
That’s why our selection here is for a very competitive game with a 0-1 victory for Lecce at the end of the 90 minutes.
