Hellas Verona will be looking for a positive return to Serie A action on Monday evening, as they host Lecce. The pressure will be on the home side after they have lost each of their previous five in the Italian top flight.
Serie A Preview
It has been a testing start to the new season for Hellas Verona, but there will still be confidence surrounding their chances of staying in the league this term. However, they will need to put a really challenging period behind them over the next couple of months, as they have recorded just two wins in their opening 12 matches this term.
Verona come into this match in poor recent form, as they have suffered defeats in each of their last five matches. Scoring goals has been a huge issue for the Italian side so far this term, as they have netted just seven across their opening 12 matches. Before the international break, they struggled in the final third once again, as they were narrowly beaten by a 1-0 scoreline away from home against Genoa.
Lecce are unlikely to be fazed by their challenge on Monday, as they have made a bright start to the season. The Italian club currently sits 14th in the overall standings, as they have won three of their opening 12 matches. Overall, they have suffered just four defeats so far this season, and they could move up to eleventh in the standings with a victory on Monday.
However, they will need to get back on track following a disappointing run of results before the international break. Lecce have now gone five matches without a victory in the competition, and they have lost two of their previous three.
Hellas Verona vs Lecce Head to Head
Verona has an excellent record against Lecce in previous Serie A meetings between the sides. They have recorded four straight victories against their rivals since 2019, which includes victories in both fixtures between the sides last term.
Hellas Verona vs Lecce Prediction
This appears to be a golden opportunity for Hellas Verona to get their season back on track. They boast an excellent record against their rivals, and they have kept clean sheets in their last four Serie A meetings with Lecce. Therefore, we will be siding with a Verona win to nil on Monday.
