Lecce – Juventus
The champion Juventus visit Lecce at the Stadio Comunale Via del Mare in a game from the 9th round of the Serie A. The Bianconeri will try to achieve a sixth consecutive win and keep the first place from Inter Milan. Let’s take a look at this match.
At this moment Juventus are leaders in the Serie A with 22 points to their record, having just one point more than the second Inter Milan. The champions are still unbeaten in the league, having a record of seven wins and one draw. After their win over Inter at the San Siro, Juventus are leading the standings in the Calcio.
Last weekend Juventus hosted Bologna at the Allianz Stadium, achieving a 2-1 win. Cristiano Ronaldo and Miralem Pjanic secured the win for the hosts.
During the week Maurizio Sarri’s boys achieved another win in the Champions League. They welcomed Lokomotiv Moscow in Turin and achieved a win with the same result. The hero this time was Paulo Dybala, who scored twice between the 77th and the 79th minutes. Until then, Juve were losing the game.
Lecce are among the newcomers in the Serie A this season. So far they have won just 7 points in the league, being 16th in the standings. It’s a dangerous situation for Lecce as they are just one point ahead of the 18th SPAL and the relegation zone.
In their last game in the league Lecce visited Milan at the Stadio San Siro, winning a point with a 2-2 draw. Khouma Babacar and Marco Calderoni scored for the visitors, who won a precious point in their fight for survival.
Despite of playing away from home, Juventus remain a strong favourite against Lecce at the Stadio Comunale Via del Mare. Juve’s manager Maurizio Sarri has a realyl deep squad, so for him won’t be a problem to rotate the team after the game against Lokomotiv in the Champions League.
