Preview: Lecce vs Lazio
Hosts Lecce sit in 18th spot, and have failed to win any of their games since Serie A resarted last month. Their 70 goals conceded so far make their defense the worst of any of the 20 teams currently featuring in the top flight, and despite scoring twice in their most recent game, it still wasn't enough to get anything out of their clash with Sassuolo as they ended up losing 4-2 to the Neroverdi.
Lecce have also lost to Juventus and AC Milan during this same time period, conceding four goals in those defeats. Most discouraging, however, for the hosts, in addition to their loss to Sassuolo was a 2-1 defeat to Sampdoria - as the Genoa-based side have also flirted with relegation this season. Now the Salentini, who have lost six games in a row are in danger of matching an unwanted record set back in 1998 when a very frustrated Lazio come to town on Tuesday.
The Biancocelesti have seen their Scudetto dreams now come under threat as they've lost two of their last three matches. The most recent was a heavy 3-0 defeat to AC Milan last weekend that now leaves them seven points behind Juventus; at the time the league re-started, they were just within a point of La Vecchia Signora. Simone Inzaghi was missing top striker Ciro Immobile for the match against the Rososneri, and he'll be able to welcome back the Capocannoniere leader for this crunch clash as they look to try to regain some of that positive momentum that seems to have eluded them as of late.
