Our Prediction:

Roma will win

Lecce – Roma Match Prediction | 30-09-2019 09:00

Lecce and Roma, the two clubs from the Southern Italy, face each other at Stadio Comunale Via del Mare for the first time since 2012. The capital club aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Atalanta and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Lecce. Back then Lecce defeated Roma 4-2 at home ground, but this time out the Romans are seen as hot favourites to win Sundays football match.

The colour of Romas shirts is imperial purple with a golden yellow trim. A number of top-class footballers were part of Roma in the past, but Francesco Totti is undisputedly the clubs biggest legend.The Prince of Rom made his 601 appearances for Roma on 14 May, 2016 when the Giallorossi recorded a 3-1 win over Milan at Stadio San Siro. The Giallorossi (The Yellow and Reds) have won three Serie A titles (1941/1942, 1982/1983, 2000/2001), while winning nine Coppa Italia trophies.

Lecce vs Roma match odds

All those 5 clashes were tight, with small goal margins at the end. Lecce lost the last 2 matches in Serie A on their pitch and on the other hand, Roma won 4 of the last 5 away games. The hosts won only once in the last 5 H2H matches and in the rest 4 games we saw Roma as the winner. So, after everything I mentioned my conclusion is that the visiting team will dominate this match and eventually they will grab all three points.

Romas unbeaten streak came to an end as they suffered 0-2 loss at home to Atalanta. Paulo Fonsecas men have failed to get on the scoresheet for the first time this season. With two wins, two draws and a loss, theyre occupying 6th spot in the standings, levelled on points with Bologna, a team theyve beaten last week thanks to Edin Dzekos last minute goal.

Now Roma face a difficult trip, with the club failing to yet their defence in order. They have conceded in every league game this season, with nine goals against them in just five games. Looking back to last season, they werent all that solid either. They conceded 1.2 goals per game overall last term, which is something Lecce can take advantage of.

Lecce vs AS Roma H2H

They won four of their trips to the bottom five, winning eight out of 10 encounters overall. We fear that this gap may just be too much for Lecce to bridge. Roma have seen both teams score in four of their five games, while last term they had a habit of winning clashes like this. However, we are backing the visitors to score a goal.

Given that, we are backing the visitors to win this clash with both teams hitting the back of the net. While we are tempted by the away win, four of the last five meetings between these two have seen both teams score. Roma and both teams to score is our prediction, while we are going for a 2-1 away win for the visitors as our correct score selection after Lecce lost three of their first five. We expect another strong display from the Giallorossi, but we cant rely on their defence.

Roma did well to beat Bologna 2-1 in their last away game and seeing that key attacker Edin Dzeko is likely to lead the line for the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Paulo Fonsecas troops. The newcomers did well to beat SPAL 3-1 on the road in their last league fixture, but Roma are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals.

Prediction Lecce-AS Roma: 12 (Odd 1.31)

Roma have seen both teams score in four of their five games, while last term they had a habit of winning clashes like this. We fear that this gap may just be too much for Lecce to bridge.

Romas fiercest rivals are Lazio and it has to be noted that both capital clubs play their home games at Stadio Olimpico. The two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Capitale, which is considered one of the most exciting derbies in the world of football. AS Roma is a professional football club based in Rome. Roma were founded by a merger in 1927 and they play in the Italian Serie A.

We expect another strong display from the Giallorossi, but we cant rely on their defence.

Void bets occur when the bet is not decided as a win or loss and the stake is returned to the player. This happens when a match is suspended, posponed, or cancelled e.g. a common void bet occurs in tennis when a player retires through injury. Note: bookmakers' policies on voided matches changes so we always recommend players to check the specific terms of bookmakers they bet with to ensure they understand under what circumstances they void bets.
