Huge , huge game for Lecce, they are six points from safety and now go into a series of three games which could offer a lifeline, today they host Palermo who are 0-4-9 on the road, with a 8-24 goal difference and then play Novara and Cesena the bottom two, results in the next fortnight are going to go a very long way to deciding their fate and they have to start with three points this afternoon. Palermo have not scored in their last two home starts ( Milan and Roma) and conceded four in Siena on their last trip off the island and arrive without Miccoli, Barreto and Pisano all of whom are suspended and big losses. Top scorer David Di Michele returns for Lecce, which is key and they also have increased options with a couple of others returning including Cuadrado and hugely experienced Gennaro Delvecchio. Hosts have to gamble for the win and there should be goals in this, with Lecce having scored six in their last two home starts, Palermo conceding heavily on the road and this fixture having produced six goals in similar circumstances last season. 1.5 points Lecce -0.5 ball 2.05 asian line.
Lecce : 3 Di Matteo Luca, 5 Esposito Andrea, 6 Giandonato Manuel, 7 Cuadrado Juan B, 8 Obodo Cristian, 9 Corvia Daniele, 10 Bojinov Valeri, 11 Seferovic Haris, 13 Miglionico Martin, 17 Di Michele David, 18 Giacomazzi Guillermo, 24 Muriel Luis, 25 Petrachi Davide, 26 Blasi Manuele, 28 Brivio Davide, 30 Oddo Massimo, 40 Tomovic Nenad, 81 Benassi Massimiliano, 82 Delvecchio Gennaro, 91 Bertolacci Andrea.
