AC Milan’s form has dropped off in recent weeks, but they will have the opportunity to get back on track before the international break this weekend. Lecce will be the hosts in Serie A, as they seek to end their two-game losing run in Italy.
Serie A Preview
AC Milan’s title credentials have been dented in recent weeks in Italy after losing two of their previous three matches. However, they will be looking to get back on track in the competition this weekend when they travel to Lecce. The former champions come into this match after having gone three without a win, and a second straight defeat could drop them out of the Champions League spots.
Milan were handed another setback in their most recent fixture in Serie A, as they were beaten 1-0 at the San Siro by Udinese. The Italian giants will need to be much more clinical in front of goal if they are to re-enter the title race this term, as they were wasteful with their four shots on target in that defeat, despite dominating 73% of the possession.
Lecce will also have a point to prove this weekend, as they have gone five matches in Serie A without a victory. They come into this match sitting eleventh in the standings, and a return to winning ways will be desperately be needed to avoid getting dragged into the scrap at the bottom of the standings.Bet here
However, their confidence would have been knocked in recent weeks, as they have suffered defeats in each of their last two, and three of their previous five. Their most recent defeat came in dramatic fashion against Roma, as they conceded twice in second half injury time.
Lecce vs AC Milan Head to Head
Milan are unbeaten in their last nine matches against Lecce. Over that period, they have recorded six victories, with three ending in draws. Milan were held to a 2-2 draw in this exact fixture last term, before registering a 2-0 win at the San Siro in April.
Lecce vs AC Milan Prediction
