Roma & Lecce meet on Match-day 9
It’s a clash of sixth vs thirteenth, as Roma host Lecce at the Stadio Olympico.
This season’s Serie A campaign, has so far seen Roma achieve 16 points
Jose Mourinho will not wish to see his side lose three matches in a row, so they will doubtless go into this match, determined to change their recent, disappointing run of form.
Also, Roma keep finding ways to win, having secured five victories in their last eight matches is astonishing this season. With a sixth position in the league and 5 wins, 2 losses and 1 draws, they currently have 16 points in the League having won five fixtures, drawn one game, and lost two games.
Playing at home, Roma have won two meetings and lost one game.
Winning this fixture will see Roma on 19 points.
Roma may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.
Lecce’s Serie A season, has so far seen them gain seven points, going into this game
With one draw, which followed a defeat, Lecce’s recent form has not been great. They will be looking to return to winning ways in this next match.
Also, a draw statistic of four in six matches is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Marco Baroni’s men wishes for ultimately. With seven points, they currently sit thirteenth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 1 wins, 3 losses and 4 draws having won one game, drawn four matches, and lost three meetings.
Lecce will travel to Roma with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one victory, one draw, and two defeat.
A victory for Lecce would put them on 10 points.
Lecce’s squad has depth, but even so, Marco Baroni is likely to be missing two of they key players when they start Sunday’s game.
