Milan vs Lecce Prediction: Serie A Match | 06.04.2024

AC Milan will be looking to strengthen their hold on second spot in the Serie A standings this weekend when they welcome Lecce to the San Siro. A victory for the home side could see them move nine points clear of third-place Juventus.

Serie A Preview

AC Milan will continue their campaign in Italy this weekend when they come up against Lecce. Milan are enjoying a fine season in the top flight, as they appear on course to finish as the runners-up. They have smoothly moved into second in recent weeks after winning each of their last four matches, which gives them a six-point advantage over Juventus.

However, it looks incredibly unlikely that they will be making a move on the league leaders, as they already sit 14 points behind Inter Milan with eight rounds of matches remaining. Milan’s fine run of form continued last weekend, as they landed a 2-1 success on the road against Fiorentina. Both efforts in that success were netted in the second period, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Rafael Leao scoring the goals.

Lecce will still be looking for important points at this stage of the season, as they will be wary of getting dragged into the relegation scrap. The Italian side comes into this round sitting 13th in the standings, but they are just four points above the drop zone.

However, they have been slightly more consistent than their rivals in recent weeks after going two without a defeat in the competition. But, they weren’t able to record a second straight victory in the league in their previous match after being held to a draw by AS Roma. But, huge confidence would have been taken after keeping a second straight clean sheet.

AC Milan vs Lecce Head to Head

Milan boast an excellent record in this fixture after going nine league matches without defeat against Lecce. The hosts have recorded wins in three of their last four matches with their rivals at the San Siro. However, the previous encounter this term ended in a dramatic 2-2 draw in November.

AC Milan vs Lecce Prediction

Lecce’s poor record in this fixture is a pressing concern ahead of this match on Sunday. Therefore, it could be worthwhile to side with the home victory for Milan to strengthen their hold on second place in the league standings.
