Lecce vs Inter Milan: Preview

Lecce form analysis

Lecce’s recent run of five Serie A matches summarizes their beat up campaign – flashes of potential undone by defensive fragility. An expected 3-0 loss away to Juventus began this stretch before striker Nikola Krstovic scored in a 2-1 defeat at Genoa. However, Lecce then twice came from behind to beat Fiorentina 3-2 in dramatic fashion on home turf – only to then
suffer their heaviest loss of the season, thrashed 4-0 at Bologna.

Their last two games have ended 2-0 losses, away to free-scoring Bologna and then Torino. So while Lecce have shown they carry a threat on the break through the likes of Krstovic, they have badly struggled defensively – failing to keep any clean sheets during this period. Shoring up their vulnerable backline will be crucial to avoid relegation.

Inter Milan form analysis

Over their past five Serie A games, Inter Milan have shown promising signs of finding consistency after an erratic first half of the season. An emphatic 5-1 thrashing of struggling Monza began this run as Hakan Calhanoglu and Lautaro Martinez both scored twice. Martinez was on target again to grab a 1-0 home win over Fiorentina before Federico Gatti’s own goal gave Inter a smash and grab Derby d’Italia victory over rivals Juventus.

The highlight of this stretch came next – a statement 4-2 win away to high-flying Roma as Inter came from behind twice. Goals from Francesco Acerbi, Marcus Thuram and a late Alessandro Bastoni header sealed an impressive victory. Inter built on that platform by dispatching relegation battlers Salernitana 4-0 last time out courtesy of strikes from Thuram, Martinez, Denzel Dumfries and Marko Arnautovic. Attackingly and defensively, Inter have found their best form under Simone Inzaghi. Maintaining this level could maintain their position.
