Competition: Serie B
Market: Lecce win by 2+ goals
Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport
Looking to try and find a route back into the top-two, Leece will welcome leading relegation scrappers L.R. Vicenza to the Stadio Via del Mare on Thursday night.
Starting with the hosts, last seen back on December 16th when picking up an eye-catching 2-0 win away at Serie A outfit Spezia on Coppa Italia duties, Leece should be roaring to make their return here. Leading the chase to secure another play-off spot this season and with their sights set on securing a top-flight return, Head Coach Marco Baroni knows that victory in midweek would push them back into the top-two. Knowing that they have a golden chance on home soil in midweek, the Giallorossi have lost just one of their last 18 matchups across all formats, a run that stems all the way back to August 22nd. Continuing to impress with their stellar displays at the Stadio Via del Mare, Leece will also be boosted by a rampant record against Thursday’s guests. Unbeaten in their last eight matchups against Vicenza and recording seven wins, Baroni’s men rightfully open as a landslide pick.
As for the visitors, while Leece might find themselves battling it out at the top of the table, the same cannot be said for Vicenza. Sat rock-bottom of the Serie B table and already chasing a staggering 13-point deficit, Head Coach Cristian Brocchi almost faces an impossible task. Last seen back on December 12th when getting hit with a 1-0 loss against Como on home soil, the Biancorossi have also lost six of their previous seven outings when heading into the festive break. Likewise, it should also be noted that Vicenza have collected just three points from a possible 15 on the road. Holding a woeful record against the promotion contenders and losing each of their last three trips to the Stadio Via del Mare, it is hard to see anything other than a similar outcome here.
Bet: Lecce to beat L.R. Vicenza by 2+ goals in Thursday’s Serie B showdown @ 888sport
