The 2022-23 season was a hugely progressive campaign for Lazio, as they ended the campaign in second-place. They will be looking to go one better this term, which means that only maximum points will do on matchday one against Lecce.
Serie A Preview
Lazio would have been delighted with their performances throughout the 2022-23 season, as few would have picked them to finish second in the overall standings. They were challenging to beat throughout the season, and they won the second-most matches in the Italian top-flight.
Building on that promise is now the key for Lazio, as they look to lay down a serious challenge for the top-flight title. However, their chances of achieving that have certainly been impacted following the big-money departure of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. But, they have addressed his exit with the midfield signing of Daichi Kamada. Lazio have drawn more matches on matchday one than any other side in Serie A history. However, they have been held to a tie in just one of the previous eleven seasons.
Lecce would have breathed a sigh of relief at the end of last season, as they narrowly avoided getting dragged into the relegation battle. Eventually, they finished four points clear of the drop zone, but they will need to win more games this term, after picking up maximum points from just eight matches in 38 last term.
Lecce are yet to win their opening match of a Serie A season, as they have lost eleven of their previous 17 matchday one fixtures. Over that period, they have been held to six draws, and that is a likely result that they would be very happy with this weekend.
Lecce vs Lazio Head to Head
Lecce were one of just two teams that Lazio failed to beat in Serie A last term. They landed a 2-1 win at home, and played out a 2-2 draw at the Stadio Olimpico. Those results mean that Lecce are now unbeaten in their last three against Lazio, winning twice over that period.
Lecce vs Lazio Prediction
Lecce’s record in this fixture is an extremely interesting angle this weekend. However, they are famously slow starters in the Italian top-flight, which means that a common result for both on matchday one could be the solid betting angle. Therefore, a draw is the selection this weekend.
