Roma are up into third after a sensational return to action in Serie A since the World Cup break with Jose Mourinho’s men as high in the table at this stage in the campaign as they have been in many years.
Roma have been boosted this season with the addition of Paulo Dybala who is once again having a tremendous season in Italy. Now, combined with Juventus’ drop in the table because of a points deduction, it seems as if the Argentine has made the right move.
Tammy Abraham’s form has come back nowadays as well, as he scored once again last time out with a goal after the sixth minute against Empoli. Roget Ibanez also scored that day after two minutes.
Mourinho’s men are behind Inter by three points in second and 16 adrift of the leagu leaders Napoli. Roma also sit above their city rivals Lazio by one point with them now winning 12 games and letting in just 18 goals - only Napoli and Lazio have better defensive records.
As for Lecce, they defeated Cremonese 2-0 last weekend to rocket them further away from the relegation zone once more. Now back at home, Marco Baroni’s men will be looking to move on from their 2-1 loss to Salernitana a few weeks back.
