Lecce – Inter Milan
We are heading to the Stadio Comunale Via del Mare where Lecce will host title contenders Inter Milan in a game from the 20th round of the Serie A. Keep up with us and our free football betting tips for the weekend.
For Lecce these are difficult times. The club is clinically close to the relegation zone, being 17th in the standings with 15 points won – just one point more than the 18th Genoa. Right now Lecce can’t be sure of their survival. They will have to fight for every point they can win, because each point could be decisive at the end.
In terms of current form Lecce don’t have many reasons to be optimistic before facing Inter Milan. Fabio Liverani’s team is in a run of four consecutive losses in the Calcio. The fact that Lecce are still not in the relegation zone is probably the only thing saving Liverani’s job at the moment.
Inter Milan need the points, too, because Antonio Conte’s team is challenging Juventus for the title this season. Until last week the Nerazzurri werel leaders in the standings, but their 1-1 draw against Atalanta at the San Siro allowed Juventus to climb to the top again. At this moment Inter are two points behind the champion, so they can’t allow themselves to lose points anymore. Especially against opposition like Lecce.
During the week Inter Milan made some preparation for this visit to the Via del Mare. The Nerazzurri hosted Cagliari in a game from Coppa Italia and enjoyed a dominant 4-1 win. Romelu Lukaku scored a brace for the hosts, while Borja Valero and Andrea Ranocchia also added goals for the hosts.
In these free football betting tips for the weekend we believe that Inter Milan do not have any room for mistakes here. If they let Juventus to get too far on the top the title race could be over.
