US Lecce stops winless run

US Lecce stops winless run

US Lecce is in desperation to finally end their winless run with a win against Udinese Calcio. Lecce found themselves on the verge of getting eliminated once again, due to their performance this season. This is not new to them though as they have been encountering the drop zone since they got promoted. Udinese on the other hand is in a much comfortable spot in the contest. They are at the mid-table, and are not worried to face early eliminations. Nonetheless, Udinese is still expected to give their all in this match as they aim to improve their standings in this match. This game will be on April 29, 2023, at 12:30 AM (GMT+8), with Lecce playing as hosts.

These two teams already shared 25 meetings across all competitions, but the visitors were able to record more wins. The hosts only had eight wins across their names, while the visitors were able to win 15 matches. In their last six games in the contest, the hosts were not able to keep a clean sheet. When playing at home, it seems like As for the visitors, they have a good momentum coming into this game, as they only experienced one loss from their last five games. However, despite having a good momentum, the hosts are not doing well on the road.

Additionally, Lecce is coming from a 2-0 loss against AC Milan on their last match in the league. On that match, Lecce failed to find themselves at the back of the net, which caused them to lose in their last match. They actually had chances against Milan, but they failed to take advantage of those opportunities. Lecce are now winless in their last eight matches, and are now aiming to put a stop in this record.

Udinese on the other hand has mixed results coming into this match, putting them at the mid-table of the league. They are at the ninth with 42 points across their names, but a win here could make them climb at the eighth. They are pushing for a top-half league finish, as they last experienced that record during the 2012-13 season. Fortunately, Udinese were able to return to winning ways on their last match. They won against Cremonese in a 3-0 win, having three different players to score. That win ended the three-game winless run of Udinese, giving them chances for a top-half finish. This win gives Udinese the confidence that they can achieve their goal this season. They have struggled on the road, but are positive that they could win this game.

Gerard Deulofeu, and Enzo Ebosse are both unavailable in this game due to their injuries. Simone Pafundi, and Isaac Success on the other hand are both a doubt here.
