An AS Roma outfit in the midst of a characteristically hit-and-miss spell of form are set to play host to Lecce at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday, October 9th.
Jose Mourinho’s hosts will head into the clash hopeful of building on an impressive result last weekend, in their return to action on the back of the international break.
A daunting trip to San Siro to face Inter Milan ultimately culminated in the Giallorossi running out 2-1 victors, owing to goals on the part of summer addition Paulo Dybala, and former Manchester United defender Chris Smalling.
And yet, few supporters of the capital giants are likely to be overly confident in the chances of their side making it six points from six.
Roma have proven almost remarkably inconsistent of late, with the club’s last eight outings across all competitions having given rise to four wins, and four defeats.
Such troubles leave Mourinho and co. sitting 6th in the Serie A table, four points adrift of the division’s summit.
The upcoming visitors to the Olimpico, meanwhile, will prove no pushovers.
Though they have not exactly set the world alight in their return to the top-flight, Lecce, of late at least, have proven an altogether tough nut to crack.
The reigning Serie B champions’ spot in 13th in the table does not look overly impressive on the face of it, but actually features a run of just one defeat in their last six fixtures.
This includes a stalemate with rampant table-toppers Napoli, and the club’s sole victory of the season thus far, at Salernitana two gameweeks ago.
Should Roma perform to the peak of their powers, then the talent-laden Giallorossi should, in truth, emerge triumphant in comfortable fashion come the final whistle in Italy’s capital on Sunday evening.
But, in the case of Mourinho’s men failing to play to their potential once more, a stubborn Lecce outfit will be ready to take full advantage.
