Verona vs Lecce Match Analysis & Prediction
27/11/2023 8:30 pm
Second-bottom Hellas Verona play host to Lecce in round 13 of the 2023-24 Serie A fixtures at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi on Monday.
The relegation-threatened side are in free fall in the competition, and they seek to end their poor run against an opponent keen to build on their draw with AC Milan a fortnight ago.
Verona may have began the campaign with two wins from two, including a victory over Jose Mourinho’s Roma, but a winless run has followed since beating the Giallorossi 2-1 in late August.
While Marco Baroni’s side were in the top four in the Serie A’s embryonic standings, their inability to secure results have now seen them drop into the bottom three, with a five-game losing streak not helping their course.
Meanwhile, Lecce will be keen to pile more misery on their opponents as they aim to end a seven-game winless run in Serie A – eight across all competitions.
That run should have been over a fortnight ago, with Roberto D’Aversa’s side almost completing a roaring comeback against Milan in a 2-2 draw at Stadio Via del Mare.
Nicola Sansone ad Lameck Banda scored second-half goals to cancel out Milan’s 2-0 halftime advantage, and Roberto Piccoli had an outstanding long-distance winning strike chalked off for a foul on Malick Thiaw after a VAR check.
Verona vs. Lecce Head to head
In the 18 previous meetings between these two teams, Verona have claimed eight victories while Lecce have won five, and they have drawn in five. Lecce have scored 18 goals and conceded 26 in the process.
Verona Team News
Baroni has a few absentees and doubts for Monday, with Jayden Braaf and Juan Cabal missing, while Darko Lazovic and Pawel Dawidowicz are doubtful.
Marco Davide Faraoni will serve a one-game suspension after picking up his fifth yellow in the 1-0 defeat at Genoa before the international break.
