Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Buoyed by a 2-1 win over Salernitana, Genoa will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Lecce in the Serie A round 22. The Rossoblu are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Defender Koni De Winter is back from suspension, while all Bohinen, Messias, Haps, and Martin remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The Giallorossi, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last five league matches. Lecce experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Juventus and given their difficulties in front of goal, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. As for the away team, all Banda, Rafia, and Touba are on international duty defender Kastriot Dermaku faces race against the clock to be fit for Sunday’s showdown.
