Lazio vs Lecce Prediction: Serie A Match | 12.05.2023

The race to secure Champions League qualification in Serie A continues on Friday, as Lazio look to bounce back from last weekend’s defeat. Lecce will be the visitors to the Stadio Olimpico, as they bid to record a second win in six.


Serie A Preview 

The pressure will be on both Lazio and Lecce this weekend, as the battle for crucial points at either end of the Serie A standings intensifies. Lazio currently sits third in the overall standings, but they come into this showdown with just a three point advantage over fifth-placed AC Milan. They have also been in patchy form over recent matches, as they have won just once in their last four. 

Lazio fell to a third defeat in four matches last weekend, as their advantage in the top four places was cut. It could ultimately be a damaging result come the end of the season, as they lost 2-0 on the road against AC Milan. Lazio managed to record 48% of the possession in that clash, but they failed to register a single shot on target.

There will also be pressure on Lecce this weekend, as their status in the top flight is far from assured. They currently sit 16th in the standings, but they are just four points above the relegation places in the league standings. Lecce has lost each of their last two, while they have recorded just a single win over their previous five matches. 

Their most recent defeat was suffered on Sunday, as they fell to a home 1-0 defeat against Hellas Verona. That defeat could be crucial in their battle to avoid the drop, as Verona are one of the few sides sitting behind Lecce in the current standings in Serie A. 

Lazio vs Lecce Head to Head 

Lecce has an excellent recent record against Lazio, as they have won each of the previous two. However, both of those wins were recorded in home fixtures. This exact fixture last season was won 4-2 by Lazio, but they were beaten on Lecce’s visit to Rome before that success. 

Lazio vs Lecce Prediction 

There will be pressure on both of these sides ahead of their showdown this weekend. However, Lazio will be keen to get back on track after their recent defeat, and the fact that they have home advantage could be crucial toward their chances of maximum points.
