SS Lazio to reclaim second seed

SS Lazio to reclaim second seed

SS Lazio is looking to steal the second spot in the league table with a win against US Lecce, who is currently threatened with relegation. Lazio’s current results is the main reason why they dropped from the second. Fortunately, Lazio was able to establish themselves in the league table. Due to this, they are likely to enter the Champions League considering their place in the standings. Lecce on the other hand is even worst, considering their place in the standings. They are also in a losing run recently, which is not good for them, or they may face a tougher challenge. Following their losing runs, both teams are aiming to bounce back through this game. This meeting will be on May 13, 2023, at 2:45 AM (GMT+8), with Lazio playing as host.

Although these two teams are in the same league, they only have 21 matches played against each other. From those 21 meetings, the hosts were able to win 12 games, while the visitors only have five victories. However, the hosts are winless in their last two matches against the visitors, after being unbeaten in four games. That only means that coming into this game, the visitors are the ones with good momentum. That is the momentum they need, as they are fighting for their lives in the standings. While the hosts are aiming to have the second spot back, the visitors are hopeful that they can continue to fight for their survival in the contest.

Lazio is currently sitting at the third place of the league table with 64 points. They were once sitting at the second of the league table, but their current results does not look optimistic. From their last four matches, they suffered three losses, which made them drop at the third. However, a win in this match will give them 67 points, which will allow them to reclaim the second spot. Lazio is a team who have been impressive this season, hence their place in the league table. Unfortunately, they are from a 2-0 loss against AC Milan in their previous match. They are lucky because they have an excellent squad, that can be their answer to their recent slump. Lazio needs to make use of their talented squad, as they can no longer afford to show a poor performance here.

Danilo Cataldi, and Matias Vecino are not expected to return in this match, as they are still nursing their injuries. Ciro Immobile on the other hand is expected to continue leading Lazio in this match.

US Lecce

Serie A: US Lecce

Lecce on the other hand is sitting at the 16th of the league table with 31 points across their name. They are just two places above the relegation zone, and with four points lead with the team at the 18th. Despite the four-points lead, it is still not a safe lead for them, and they are still threatened with relegation. Unfortunately, just like their opponents, Lecce is also in a losing run, losing to three of their last four matches. This run includes a 1-0 loss against Hellas Verona on their last match. Due to this, they are looking to bounce back in this important match, to avoid early elimination. Although Lecce failed to be at their best this season, they have showed their potential, which they need to show here.

Kastriot Dermaku remains to be unavailable in this match, as he have yet to recover from his muscle injury. With his absence, it is expected that Federico Baschirotto, and Samuel Umtiti will work on his behalf.
