We check back in on the Italian top division and focus on the meeting of Lecce and Juventus that takes place on Saturday afternoon from 2.00 pm. This Serie A tussle may not be live on any major UK TV channel. However, there will be plenty of interest in the outcome as many Juve followers are based in this part of the world. They also like to keep a close eye on The Old Lady’s progress. Here are our top Lecce v Juventus betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
Lecce enjoys the home advantage and that would be considered a great chance at winning three points on most normal weekends of football. However, they face the unenviable task of sizing up against the modern-day giants of the Italian game. Juventus are on a run of title wins. What’s more, the team is expected to bank another flag this term without encountering too much resistance along the way.
The visitors made a strong enough start to their defence and moved back to the summit thanks to six wins and a draw from their opening seven games. They entered the international break with a one-point cushion over the chasing pack and that will grow between now and Christmas.
A Lot to Focus On
Will playing in the Champions League cause Juve to take their eyes off the ball domestically? There’s a chance but we’d say a very slim one and nothing for their rivals to get excited about. Lecce is priced as big as 17/2 at William Hill to secure a home win with the draw available at 4/1. Juventus are favourites but they are priced better than expected and can be backed at 1/3 with 10Bet. One for your weekend accumulators, we believe but we’re on the handicap price.
