THE TEAM NEWS

JUVENTUS

  • Juventus responded to their Coppa Italia final loss by picking up an important three points on their return to Serie A action as they proved too good for Bologna in their clash on Monday.
  • With Lazio and Internazionale in close proximity, there was a danger that Juve would dwell on their disappointment from their penalty shootout defeat against Napoli but that did not prove to be the case as a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty gave them the lead midway through the first half.
  • Paulo Dybala then struck a second with a wonderful strike to seal the victory for Juve but they will be without Danilo for this contest after the Brazilian was shown two yellow cards having come on as a second half substitute against Bologna.

LECCE

  • Lecce’s troubles at the wrong end of the table continued in their first game back following the enforced suspension as they were on the end of a heavy loss at home to Milan and things do not get any easier for them as they head to top of the table Juventus.
  • Leece were poor defensively before the break in play and they were unable to rectify that as they shipped four goals but what will frustrate them is their lack of concentration after levelling the scores through Marco Mancosu’s penalty.
  • Milan were able to immediately retake the lead just a minute later and added a further two goals to condemn Lecce to a 1-4 loss and they still have a long injury list with Diego Farias, Gianluca Lapadula, Cristian Dell'Orco and Alessandro Deiola all sidelined.

THE PREDICTION

Leece conceded four goals in their first game back in action and they now face the daunting task of facing Juventus. Lecce have now conceded 15 goals in their last three matches which does not bode well ahead of this trip to Turin. Juventus possess a four-point lead at the top after the latest round of matches and having won comfortably in their first Serie A game since the temporary curtailment, they should be able to add to that with a straightforward win here with the league leaders likely to take a lead into half-time too.
