Lecce will be looking to jump back into the win column after two draws in a row in Serie A with Hellas Verona set to welcome the club to the Marcantonio Bentegodi Stadium as the home side move back down to 19th after another loss.
Verona restarted their league action in relatively positive form back on January 4th. Salvatore Bocchetti’s drew 1-1 with Torino in their first outing before winning just their second game in Serie A this campaign by beating Cremonese.
Darko Lazovic scored twice that day to move Verona into 18th, but after a loss to Inter Milan, they are deeper into the relegation zone once again. On the other hand, they are only behind 18th-placed Sampdoria on goals difference.
Lecce are in 13th still after getting a positive draw against AC Milan. On one hand, the club did lead twice and will be disappointed in the dropped points, but on the other hand, Milan are in second and have lost only twice all season long.
Lecce are also above Verona in the drop zone by 11 points and relegation fears are practically non-existent.
