Serie A – Salernitana – Lecce on Match-day 7
Lecce currently sit in seventeenth place as they travel to tenth placed Salernitana.
Salernitana arrive at this game, having secured seven points so far this season
A 3rd successive, disappointing result for Salernitana will not be acceptable for Davide Nicola’s men. They will see this fixture as an opportunity to turn their form around after drawing 2-2 at Juventus and 2-2 at Empoli.
Also, a draw statistic of three in three fixtures is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Davide Nicola’s men wishes for ultimately. With seven points (1W, 1L and 4D), they are established in tenth position in the League having won one game, drawn four meetings, and lost one game.
Playing at home, Salernitana have won one game, drawn one game, and lost one game.
Salernitana will see 10 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
Good Attacking Performance
Salernitana will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (9). Their stand out attacking players have been Boulaye Dia (3), Federico Bonazzoli (1), and Tonny Vilhena (1). Salernitana have conceded six goals.
It is likely that five key players will miss Friday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Davide Nicola and his Salernitana team.
Lecce have three points to their name, going into this tie
Lecce come to this game on the back of a 1-1 home draw against AC Monza at Via Del Mare.
Also, with three draws in four fixtures, Lecce need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. With a seventeenth position in the league and 0 wins, 3 losses and 3 draws, they currently have three points in the League having drawn three fixtures and lost three fixtures.
Lecce will travel to Salernitana with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one dart and two losse.
A victory for Lecce would put them on 6 points.
Marco Baroni will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of one of his Lecce players.
