Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Lecce will be looking to extend their winning run to five games when they face Salernitana in the Serie B round 31. The Giallorossi were scoring goals for fun before the international break, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. You should bear in mind that Lecce scored 14 goals in total in the previous four league matches. The likes of Adjapong, Listowski, and Pettinari are out of contention through injuries for the home team.
Salernitana, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Brescia, and seeing that they are likely to go for a win in the Serie B derby as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered. The likes of Aya, Cicerelli, and Dziczek remain on the sidelines with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Fabio Lucioni):
Fabio Lucioni is a product of Ternana football school. Lucioni played for the youth team of Ternana from 2002 to 2005 and he eventually made 14 appearances for the first team. The 185-cm-tall defender played for the likes of Monopoli, Noicattaro, Gela, Barletta, Spezia and Reggina in the past as well before joining Benevento in 2014.
Lucioni has established himself as a first-team regular at the club and it has to be noted that he scored three goals in 46 appearances for Benevento in the 2016/2017 Serie B campaign. The Stregoni secured promotion to the Serie A by beating Carpi in the play-offs final, meaning that Lucioni will have a chance to test a top-flight football in the 2017/2018 season.
Lucioni’s main position is centre-back and his contract with Benevento expires on June 30, 2018. The left-footed defender, who was born in Terni on September 25, 1987, has yet to earn a call-up for the Italian national football team.
