Juventus leads Serie A with 66 points in its fight with Lazio for Scudetto, in one of the most exciting league titles taking place in Europe and in which none can afford to fail. With 21 wins, 3 draws and 3 defeats, Juve chains 4 consecutive wins against Brescia, SPAL, Inter Milan and Bologna. Regarding goals, they have scored 52 and conceded 24.
This Monday they played their last commitment in Bologna with a 0-2 result with goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Dybala. Danilo entered in the 66th minute replacing De Sciglio who suffered an injury to the femoral biceps. The Brazilian received 2 yellow cards in just 30 minutes, with which he will be low by sanction to receive Lecce, who with Sciglio far from recovering and Álex Sandro injured, will pose a problem on the sides for Maurizio Sarri.
Lecce is in full bid to maintain the category and has 25 points, distributed in 6 wins, 7 draws and 14 losses. With 35 goals in favor and 60 against, it is the Serie A team that concedes the most goals.
The team was playing well until the last days in which it has not only lost the last 3 games, but has suffered goals in all of them, 4-0 against Roma, 2-7 against Atalanta and 1-4 against Milan . The problems behind Lecce are obvious and Juventus is not exactly the most propitious rival to break this streak.
Lecce tied with Mancosu’s goal from the penalty spot, but the goal did not sit well with them and they conceded another 3.
