Saturday afternoon CET time, the Olimpico will witness a battle between Lazio and Lecce, two teams that have different targets in the Serie A standings at the end of the season. Here’s a preview, interesting facts, h2h, and how to watch live streaming.
Lazio still has ambitions to qualify for the Champions League next season by placing in the top four. Currently they are in third place with 64 points, 19 points behind Napoli who are at the top of the standings. However, they must not let their guard down as Milan, who are in fifth place, are only three points away from them.
Lazio must immediately rise from a 2-0 defeat to Milan in the previous game. The defeat made their chances of qualifying for the Champions League even slimmer. Coach Maurizio Sarri must ensure his team doesn’t lose focus and motivation in the remaining matches.
Lecce also had no time to be sad after losing 1-0 to Hellas Verona in the previous game. The defeat left them in 16th place with 31 points, just four points clear of the relegation zone. They have to fight tooth and nail to secure points in every game.
Lecce has a poor record on the road this season. They have lost five in a row away from home, scoring just one goal in that span. They have also lost nine of their 13 away fixtures against sides above them in the table. Coach Marco Baroni must find a way to improve his team’s performance away from home.
Even so, Lecce can count on their good record against Lazio. They won 2-1 in their first meeting of the season, with goals from Gabriel Strefezza and Lorenzo Colombo. They have also lost only once in their last four games against Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico.
Lazio must be wary of the threat of Lecce which could disrupt their dream of qualifying for the Champions League. They have to show their best game and take advantage of playing at home.
Lazio has a sharp attacking trio, namely Ciro Immobile, Mattia Zaccagni and Felipe Anderson. The three have scored 29 goals together this season. Immobile also scored Lazio’s opener in the first leg of the season.
Lecce also has two attackers who can threaten Lazio’s goal, namely Gabriel Strefezza and Assan Ceesay. The two have scored 14 goals together this season. Strefezza also scored for Lecce in the first meeting of the season.
