Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Buoyed by a 4-2 win over Sassuolo, Bologna will be aiming to climb to the Champions League berth when they take on Lecce in the Serie A round 24. The Rossoblu are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Alexis Saelemaekers is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in the last league match, while Michel Aebischer serves a one-game ban due to the accumulation of yellow cards.
The Giallorossi, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Fiorentina and they managed to get one, but given their poor away record in the Italian top flight, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Bologna. Valentin Gendrey is banned for the match, while fellow defender Kastriot Dermaku is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
