Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Juventus will be aiming to put an end to their four-game winless run when they take on Lecce in the Serie A round 33. The Bianconeri are eager to stay in the Champions League berth and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Dusan Vlahovic is pushing for a start, while both Angel Di Maria and Moise Kean remain on the sidelines with injuries. Winger Federico Chiesa should keep his place in the starting XI.
The Gillorossi, on the other hand, did well to beat Udinese in front of home fans at the weekend, but given their four-game losing run on the road, we predict that Juve are going to emerge triumphant in Wednesday’s clash. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Turin, while both Giuseppe Pezzella and Marin Pongracic are major doubts.
Highlighted Player (Angel di Maria):
Angel Di Maria is a professional footballer who played for Argentine side Rosario Central at the start of his senior career. The left-footed winger is very quick on the ball and he often makes life difficult for opposition defenders. After playing for Benfica between 2007 and 2010, the Argentine superstar signed for Real Madrid on 28 June, 2010 for a fee of €25 million + €11 million in bonuses.
Despite impressing with los Blancos in the 2013/2014 La Liga campaign, the club chiefs decided to sell him to Manchester United on 26 August, 2014. Di Maria was playing below expectations at Old Trafford and he scored three goals in 27 league games for the Red Devils.
In 2015 he moved to Paris Saint-Germain and he scored 10 goals in 29 league appearances for les Parisiens in the 2015/2016 Ligue 1 campaign. In 2014 he won the Champions League trophy with Real Madrid and that is considered the biggest success of his career. Angel Di Maria was born in Rosario on 14 February, 1988.
Highlighted Team (Lecce):
When you imagine a yellow-red shirt, Lecce must be the first club that comes to your mind. Founded back in 1908, Lecce are Italian club that will compete in the Serie A in the 2019/2020 season. The Giallorossi return to the Italian top flight following a seven-year absence and, as always, they will host their rivals at Stadio Via del Mare.
The venue which was opened on September 11, 1966 can hold up to 33,876 people. The likes of Antonio Conte, Graziano Pelle, Javier Chevanton, Juan Cuadrado, Mirko Vucinic, Fabrizio Miccoli and Massimo Oddo are one of the most notable footballers who played for the Italian club in the past.
Lecce and Gallipoli face each other in the Salento derby and there have been fireworks in meetings between the two clubs since the 2009/2010 Serie B season when they first met in the league.
