Reason For Lecce vs Bologna Betting Tips

  • Lecce are looking to move clear of the drop zone and close in on Bologna.
  • Lecce have the fewest clean sheets in Serie A this term (1).
  • The visitors aren’t far behind with just 2 shut outs.
  • Bologna have seen both teams score in 10 straight games.

Can Leece Cut the Gap?

Lecce continue their fight for survival on Sunday, as they host Bologna this weekend. The visitors have had a mixed season which has included a few big scalps, but they are only four points clear of newly promoted Lecce ahead of this meeting.

This could be a real turning point for the visitors. Will they secure all three points and move towards the top half, or will the relegation-threatened hosts cut the gap between the pair?

Two Open Sides

Neither of these two sides can claim to be brilliant at the back. Lecce are the team with the fewest clean sheets in Serie A this season (one), whilst Bologna have kept just two shut outs themselves. Bologna have only conceded five goals fewer than Lecce, who are the most open side in the division.

Despite having conceded the most goals (32) in Serie A this season, Lecce haven’t conceded a single goal in the opening 15 minutes of matches (alongside Roma). However, Bologna tend to strike most often in the second half, so we doubt the hosts will improve their defensive record here.

Another Bologna Thriller

While both defences are too open, we expect both to get forward and create chances. Bologna have both scored and conceded each of their last 10 Serie A matches: it is the longest current such run in the competition (17 scored, 20 conceded).

The visitors have seen over 2.5 goals scored in 75% of their matches so far this season. That includes each of their last 11 matches. With Lecce conceding two goals per game on average this season we expect a high scoring clash, soover 2.5 goals is our tip for this one.

Eight of the 15 matches between Bologna and Lecce in the 2000s have finished level: five wins for Bologna and two defeats. On top of that, Lecce are on a streak of home draws. They have seen each of their previous three at this ground finish 2-2, while the visitors have won just 25% of their trips. As a result, we see another 2-2 draw in this clash.
