Our Prediction:

Spal will win

Spal – Lecce Match Prediction | 26-09-2019 15:00

The host has won the previous home game in their schedule against Lazio with a 2-1 score. Interestingly both teams share a similar form on the table (LWLL) from their individual four encounters. Lecce went on to win the previous trip on road against Toronto in a 1-2 score. SPAL will be hosting the promoted team, Lecce, on their third home match of the SA games in this season.

Moreover, the hosting side has scored in all the ten home matches they have played recently. Besides that, the traveling contingent has netted at least one goal in three of the last five away fixtures. Henceforth, there are more chances that the game will produce a couple of goals with the host leading by the end of the ninety minutes.

Goal Timings

SPAL vs Lecce prediction comes ahead of round 5 of the Italian Serie A matchup. Both teams have had their ups and downs since the beginning of this season, and both of them are dangerously low in the standings, so Im expecting to see an exciting clash, where they give their best to try to climb up the league table. As a result, dont miss out on my match preview to get the best betting tips and correct score predictions for this clash.

SPAL manager Leonardo Semplici has won seven of his 10 Serie A matches against newly-promoted teams (D2, L1). Hell need to get SPAL firing against the newcomers, while this is the perfect chance for the hosts to build on their recent home victory. As a result, we think that SPAL will deliver in this encounter on Wednesday, so we are backing a home victory in this one.

Spal are certainly the better team on paper here and while they will be expected to survive relegation, Lecce could well find themselves going straight back down if they dont find a way of picking points up. Spal beat Lazio two weeks ago which was a great result for them, but instead of building on that they were brought back down to earth with a 3-0 defeat at Sassuolo.

Trends/Tips

The Rossoblu played out a 1-1 draw with Verona in the City of Love in their opener, with the match being marked by Sinisa Mihajlovics return. The Serbian coach is still recovering from an acute leukemia, but he obviously wants to help his team by being present on every single match. Bologna and SPAL face each other at Stadio Renato DallAra on day 2 of the new Serie A campaign.

Andrea Petagna is the player to keep an eye for, as he scored 2 goals since the beginning of their campaign. One of their important players, a 23-year-old midfielder Mohamed Fares is still recovering from a cruciate ligament rupture, and wont be available for this match, so the manager Leonardo Semplici will have to think of an appropriate substitute for him.

The promoted team will not have much experience about the league whereas the host secured the 13th spot on the league table in the last season. Also, the host has the home advantage to their side and have won the previous home game in the league. Moreover, they have won two of the previous three home ties in their schedule in overall fixtures of the major competitions. Alongside, the visiting side has lost three games in their last five away clashes in the major tournaments.

Right now they are in the 15th place in the standings and will have to ensure that they continue with the good results in order to climb up to the upper part of the table and get away as far as possible from the relegation zone. However they didnt stop scoring, their goal difference from the last 5 matches is 10:8, and in their last 10 home games they scored at least 2 or more goals in 9 matches, so I believe that they will easily score on this occasion as well. They played great during the preseason and were on a streak of 8 games without a loss, but as soon as the season started, they started loosing. Spal surprised everyone with their incredible 2-1 victory over Lazio, which was their first win this season.

Meanwhile, SPAL have seen both teams score in six of their last seven Serie A games. They did get forward and make chances in their first two, but now they are converting. Lecce have at least stepped up their scoring return in recent games, as theyve found the back of the net in consecutive matches. Given that form, were also going for a 2-1 home victory this week.

They tend to disappoint on the road, with recent seasons usually sending down two of the three promoted sides. The visitors were able to shock Torino with a 2-1 win in their visit to Turin, but they returned to normal with a 4-1 thumping against Napoli at the weekend. Its set to be a tough campaign for the visitors, given the struggles which Serie Bs promoted trio have had in the top flight in recent years.

The Serbian international quickly established himself as a first-team regular and he made 24 league appearances for the Viola in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign. After ending his loan-spell with Lecce Nenad Tomovic joined Fiorentina in 2012 in a co-ownership deal (Genoa and Fiorentina). Tomovic moved to Italy in 2009, signing a deal with Genoa, but he played no more than 14 league games for the Rossoblu.

Bologna fans are likely to pack Stadio Renato DallAra on Friday evening and seeing that SPAL experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 loss to Atalanta in the opening match of the season, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Sinisa Mihajlovics charges. In their last meeting in Bologna in the national championship SPAL emerged triumphant, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
