  • Lecce have conceded 15 goals in their last 3 Serie A games.
  • The visitors have conceded at least 3 goals in each of their 4 visits to the league’s top 5 teams.
  • Juventus have scored 2+ goals in each of their last 7 home league games.
  • Juve have kept a clean sheet in all 3 matches since the restart.

Juve Back to Winning Ways

Juventus may have shaken off the rust and their Coppa Italia loss to Napoli, but they suffered a blow against Bologna. Their 2-0 win came in spite of an injury to Mattia De Sciglio and a red card for Danilo. That’s left them with issues at full-back, but can that really level the playing field?

Juve lead the way at the top of Serie A, while Lecce are on their way to Serie B. The visitors were handed a comprehensive defeat in their meeting with AC Milan on Monday night, which has pushed them closer to the drop.

Trouble for Lecce

Lecce look like the only member of the bottom three who could possibly pull themselves to safety as it stands. However, their recent displays are far from convincing. They lost 4-1 at home to AC Milan on Monday, which means they’ve now conceded 15 goals across their last three Serie A matches.

Lecce have clearly been handed a tough start with Juve ahead, but that’s a massive problem given their record against the better sides. They’ve lost to four of the top five on the road so far, conceding at least three goals in each. They’ve shipped 15 goals across those four away trips, so their visit to the league leaders looks incredibly one-sided.

Juve can Stretch Their Lead

With Lecce losing seven of their 13 away trips in the league, we expect a straightforward game for Juve here. The hosts have scored twice in each of their last seven home Serie A matches, while they’ve averaged over two goals per home game in the league this term.

We expect the champions to click at home to a side as defensively poor as Lecce. Given this awful three-game run against sides contending for Europe, their visit to Turin should result in a heavy loss. Juventus looked sharper in their win over Bologna, so over 2.5 Juventus team goals is our

With Juve winning each of their last three home league matches without conceding, we’re backing another clean sheet. They’ve not let in a goal in 270 minutes of action since the restart, so they should win this one to nil. A 3-0 home win is our correct score prediction.
