Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Verona will look to recover from a 1-0 loss to Inter when they take on Lecce in the Series A round 19. The Mastini are desperate to escape the relegation zone, and the fact that they defeated Cremonese 2-0 in their last home fixture is surely giving fans a reason for optimism. The opposition back-line should have Darko Lazovic at bay as the Serbia winger scored a brace against Le Tigri, while Simone Verdi is sidelined with a muscle problem.
All Faraoni, Cortinovis, Praszelik, and Verdi are likely to miss the match as well. The Giallorossi, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team extending their unbeaten run to six games thanks to a 2-2 draw with Milan. Verona want this win more than Lecce, but given the away team’s promising form, the share of spoils is on the cards in the “City of Love”. Dermaku and Pongracic should be the only absentees in the away team.
