Lecce will host Lazio at the Stadio Via del Mare on Sunday, 20 August 2023, in the opening match of the 2023/24 Serie A season. This is an interesting clash between the promoted team and last season’s runners-up team.
Lecce returned to Serie A after a two season absence. They managed to get promoted by finishing second in Serie B last season. Lecce have had quite the form in the summer, winning four of their five friendlies, including a 1-0 win over Como in the Coppa Italia. However, they will face a big challenge when they host Lazio, who are one of the strongest sides in Italy.
Lazio, under the tutelage of new coach Maurizio Sarri, has the ambition to compete with Juventus and Inter Milan in the race for the title. They have a quality squad, with players like Ciro Immobile, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Luis Alberto and Francesco Acerbi.
Lazio have also put in an impressive run of form in the summer, winning 12 of their last 18 games in all competitions, including a thumping 9-0 win over Latina in their last outing.
Lecce and Lazio have quite an exciting history of meetings. In the last five matches between the two teams, Lazio has never won in absolute terms. They only won two narrow wins and three draws. Lecce also managed to score in each of these matches. The last game between the two teams ended 2-2 at the Stadio Olimpico in February 2020.
In terms of statistics, Lecce has the advantage in terms of finishing effectiveness. They scored 18 goals from 35 shots on target in their last five matches, averaging 3.6 goals per game. Meanwhile, Lazio scored 25 goals from 63 shots on target in their last six matches, averaging 4.2 goals per game.
However, Lazio has the advantage in terms of ball possession and opportunity creation. They have averaged 58% possession and 16.8 shots per game in their last six matches. Meanwhile, Lecce have averaged 48% possession and 11 shots per game in their last five matches.
Even though Lecce has a high fighting spirit and performed quite well in the summer, they are still outclassed by Lazio, who has a more qualified squad and has more experience in Serie A. Lazio also has great motivation to start this season with a win , especially after failing to win the title last season. Therefore, it is predicted that Lazio will take the three points tonight.
