Lecce vs Genoa Match Preview
A big game at the bottom of Serie A in the early kick off on Sunday, with three valuable points up for grabs. Lecce have been in much better for recently, with just one loss from their last six and seven valuable points coming from that period.
For Genoa, it hasn’t been anywhere near good enough and they are now in the relegation zone. They haven’t registered a win for five games, with two draws and three defeats during that period. Worryingly, they have won just two of their 14 league games so far, a figure that simply must be improved upon over the coming weeks otherwise a long relegation battle awaits.
Goal scoring has been an issue for Lecce overall, but it has improved in recent weeks, with at least one goal in each of their last six games. However, the same cannot be said for Genoa, who have scored one goal in their last three games and you get the feeling that this is a crucial area for them moving forward.
While we do think they will score here against a Lecce defence that can be described as average at best, we don’t think it will be enough for them to take anything from the game. We are backing Lecce to continue their good run and pick up three vital points on Sunday to pull even further clear of the drop zone.
Elsewhere, our second bet on this game is for both teams to score. While we haven’t seen much in front of goal from Genoa, Lecce are conceding plenty, so we see chances at both ends of the pitch in this one.
