he players of Lecce were completely blown off the field in the last round when encountering Roma. The outcome of the match could be foreseen in the first half after two goals were scored by the hosts.
The home team kept the momentum and desire for more goals in the second half and of course, the result was not missing. Two goals more were scored for the final score of 4-0. With this defeat, Lecce ranks at the sixteenth position on the table with only two points more than the danger zone and the place leading to the Serie B.
The hosts miss forwards Farias (12/2), Babacar (17/2), Falco (19/3), and right-back Rispoli (20/0).
The team from Bergamo continues to flourish both in European competitions and in the domestic league. Atalanta players are in great shape as they demonstrated in the last Champions League match by beating Valencia 4-1.
Success was not absent in the last round of Serie A either. Roma was overcome in an uncertain match, as Atalanta upped the tempo in the second halftime and maybe deserved to score a goal or two more from what we’ve seen in the second part.
They are currently ranked fourth with forty-five points and will need many more good games to secure a place in the Champions League again.
Visiting team news
Defender Toloi (22/1) is injured for this one. Another central defender Djimsiti (22/1) is doubtful due to a hip problem.
This match is of great importance for both teams
In the event of losing the match, the host endangers his place in the Italian elite competition, while guests with the same scenario may lose the fourth place leading to the Champions League. For this reason, I believe that this will be a very open match with many chances and a high probability that both teams will score.
