Fiorentina, Lecce, to end Serie A struggles

Fiorentina and Lecce aims to finally end their struggles in the Italy Serie A, and go back to their winning ways. Fiorentina wants to stop their losing streak going into this match as they already experienced back-to-back defeats. On the other hand, for Lecce, they continuously struggled in this tournament. Now, they are just one standing away above the regulation so they are in a much-needed win situation. Lecce entertains Fiorentina for their Serie A match on October 18, 2022, at 2:45 AM (GMT+8).

This squad already met 36 times before this fixture where the visitors won 14, compared to the hosts’ 11 victories. During the last 18 games of these two squads, Fiorentina won seven times and lost only six fixtures. For the visitors, they won their last two away games against the hosts. However, this squad already suffered four defeats in their nine opening games. Meanwhile, despite winning just six of their last 18 matches, the hosts won nine Serie A games against the visitors. They also recorded draws in their last three league games at their home turf, most by any club this season. Looking at this record, the result of this meeting might be uncertain.

Being 14th in the league table does not look good for this squad, after their consecutive defeats in the tournament. This squad’s performance in the tournament is actually underwhelming, which made them slip down the league table. Defense is the primary concern for Fiorentina as they failed to break down their opponent’s defense. However, on their last match, they might have found their key for successful future matches. Their vertical, line-breaking passing could take them to victories in their future matches. However, for it to work, their central defenders to feed the midfielders and forwards in the middle. Despite that strength, they still need to work on their defense so they could stop their opponents.

Gaetano Castrovilli still stays on the sideline as a long-term absentee. Along with him is Riccardo Sottil who is set to miss out this match, and midfielder Sofyan Amrabat with his suspension. Arthur Cabral is expected to lead Fiorentina in the attack lane.

Having only nine points from their previous matches, Lecce is actually fighting for their lives as they are just above the relegation zone. Compared to their opponent, this squad is worse than them. They collected two points lower than Fiorentina from many games. However, Lecce did well against their opponents, which could be their motivation coming into this match. Consistency is always their problem during their games as they failed in that area big time.

They will be without the suspended Morten Hjulmand, and Alexis Blin could come into his behalf. Moreover, Kristoffer Askildsen is doubtful because of a thiguh injury he encountered in Rome, but he could be fit in the bench.
