Team News: Lecce
Marcin Listkowski (Unknown Injury), Marco Calderoni (Calf Problems) and Claud Adjapong (Achilles tendon rupture) will be missing for Lecce boss Eugenio Corini.
Team News: Salernitana
Salernitana boss Fabrizio Castori has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Cristiano Lombardi (Muscle Injury) and Patryk Dziczek (Ill) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
It looks to us that Lecce will more than likely score a couple of goals when they play Salernitana, who won’t find it easy to break down their defence.
We reckon that it will be a comfortable 2-0 victory for Lecce when all’s said and done.
