Lecce vs Inter Milan

, KO: 17:00 Feb 25, 2024, Stadio Ettore Giardiniero
Inter Milan

Lecce face the difficult task of trying to stop Inter Milan as they welcome the in-form Serie A leaders to the Stadio Ettore Giardiniero on Sunday. The Nerazzurri have steamrolled all-comers in recent weeks and should ease past their troubled hosts.

Lecce have found things difficult in recent weeks, picking up just one win in their last nine matches across all competitions. They have suffered seven defeats in that run and are now just four points above the relegation zone.

Roberto D’Aversa’s men head into Sunday’s clash off the back of a 2-0 defeat at Torino last time out in Serie A. That result means Lecce have now failed to score in their last two matches having lost 4-0 to Bologna in their previous fixture.

While Lecce have been generally far from their best, there have been some home comforts in recent weeks. They are unbeaten in their last five matches at the Stadio Ettore Giardiniero, picking up a 3-2 victory over Fiorentina in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Inter Milan appear to have cranked things up a notch in recent weeks as they travel to Lecce off the back of nine straight wins across all competitions. They appear to be cruising towards the Scudetto having opened up a nine point lead at the top of the Serie A standings.

The Nerazzurri were in rampant mood last time out in Serie A as they picked up a 4-0 victory over Salernitana. They followed that up with a 1-0 victory over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 first leg. Both results mean they have now kept six clean sheets in their last seven matches across all competitions.

Inter Milan have also been solid travellers this season and are yet to taste defeat away from home. Simone Inzaghi’s men have claimed a few one-sided wins on the road, including a 5-1 win at Monza and a 3-0 victory at defending champions Napoli.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have installed Inter Milan as overwhelming favourites with a win priced at 9/20 by 10bet. An unlikely victory for Lecce is valued at 7/1 by BetVictor while a draw is set at odds of 7/2 by BoyleSports.

Head to head

Inter Milan have a 20-4 advantage with three draws from 27 previous matches against Lecce. The Nerazzurri have also won the last two meetings and claimed a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in November.

Players to watch

Lautaro Martinez is showing no signs of slowing down and has found the net eight times in the last 10 Serie A matches. The striker now has 20 Serie A goals this season and is priced at 6/5 by bet365 to maintain his scoring run.

Inter Milan have also been solid at the back, keeping clean sheets in six of their last seven matches. Stefan de Vrij has impressed at the heart of that defence and can lead the Nerazzurri to another clean sheet at 11/10 with Coral.

Anything else catch the eye?

Inter Milan have won to nil in the last two meetings with Lecce and could be set for a repeat at 7/5 with BetVictor. The Nerazzurri have also earned a number of one-sided results in recent weeks and could be backed in the -1 handicap market at 5/4 with 888Sport.

Inter Milan have been prolific in recent weeks and could be backed to score in both halves on Sunday at 13/10 with William Hill.
