Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 4 of the last 5 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 4 of the last 5 matches for this competition.
Reggio Audace FC gave the best possible answer to the two consecutive defeats in the championship, by beating Venezia by 2-1 at home: Igor Radrezza and Simone Mazzocchi were the authors of the home team's goals. After all, the visiting team occupies the twelfth place in the league table with seven points below, but with two games behind due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
The group led by Massimiliano Alvini must present themselves in a 3-4-3, favoring defensive processes and quick attacks through the wings. Augustus Kargbo and Simone Mazzocchi should be the visiting team's offensive references. The central corridor must be formed by Gabriel Lunetta, Fausto Rossi, Simone Muratore and Lorenzo Libutti. For this game, the coach of Reggio Audace FC has the team at full strength.
The most likely scenario will be for Lecce to confirm the favoritism for this game and win the match with greater or lesser difficulty. Playing at home, the team led by Eugenio Corini must take control of the game and have the best goal opportunities, as they have a more technically and tactically evolved squad than their opponents. On the other hand, the visitors must act with a low block, to withstand the attacks of the visitors and try through the quick attacks to reach the advantage, but without practical effects in the encounter. Having said that and taking into account the difference in quality between the two teams, we would bet on home triumph.
