Lecce hosts Napoli
Lecce hosts Napoli at the Stadio Comunale Via del Mare in a game from the fourth round of the Italian Serie A. Let’s take a look in our sure win prediction today.
Lecce just returned to the Serie A, but right now they are once again in the relegation zone of the Calcio. The Salentini are 18th in the standings with only three points won, but even a point in the next game could allow them to climb up into the safe zone. Lecce recorded their only win so far in the previous round, when they surprisingly beat Torino with 2-1 in Turin. Diego Farias and Marco Mancosu scored for the visitors.
This is what the Salentini must do on a regular basis to guarantee themselves at least one more season in the Serie A. But it’s going to be really difficult against Napoli on Sunday.
Napoli arrive at Lecce with the confidence of a team which just beat the European champion. During the week Carlo Ancelotti’s team started its participation in the Champions League with a 2-0 win at home against Liverpool. Dries Mertens opened for the hosts from a penalty kick, while the new signing Fernando Llorente added one more for Napoli.
Against Lecce Napoli will seek their third win the Serie A for the season. So far Ancelotti’s boys are having a record of two wins and one loss. In the previous round the Azzurri welcomed Sampdoria at the San Paolo and won with 2-0. Dries Mertens scored both goals for Napoli.
It’s too early to make judgments what Napoli could do this season, but so far the Azzurri are looking solid. This is Carelo Ancelotti’s second season in the club, so we shall expect an improvement.
In our sure win prediction today we favour Napoli to take all of the three points against Lecce. The team is in a great mood after the big win against Liverpool, so nothing shall stop them now.
