26/05 Football Predictions: Napoli vs Lecce – Serie A 

On Sunday, May 26, 2024, Napoli will host Lecce at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in the final round of Serie A. Napoli, last season’s Scudetto winners, find themselves in an uncharacteristic mid-table position and are striving for a potential European spot. Lecce, on the other hand, have secured their safety and will look to finish the season on a high. 

Despite Napoli’s disappointing campaign, this match presents an intriguing clash, with Napoli’s home form under scrutiny and Lecce playing without the pressure of relegation fears.

Napoli vs Lecce H2H/Stats 

  • Napoli have not scored more than two goals in any of their last 15 home league games.
  • Lecce have conceded more than two goals only once in their last 11 contests.
  • Napoli have picked up just one win in their last nine matches.
  • Both teams have scored in seven of Napoli’s last 10 home matches.
  • Lecce have scored in four of their last five away matches.
  • Napoli haven’t failed to score in any of their last nine head-to-heads with Lecce.

Napoli vs Lecce Team News

Napoli will be without some key players as they aim to end this disappointing season with a win. Piotr Zielinski is sidelined with a muscle injury, and Mario Rui is also ruled out until next month. Star striker Victor Osimhen is unlikely to feature, having struggled with injury issues, which might mean he has played his last game for the club. These absences could impact Napoli’s attacking potential significantly.

Lecce also have their share of injury concerns. Valentin Gendrey, Nicola Sansone, Lameck Banda, and Kastriot Darmaku are all ruled out. Additionally, Mohamed Kaba faces a late fitness test after sustaining a knee injury. Despite these setbacks, Lecce will aim to exploit Napoli’s vulnerabilities and end the season positively.

Napoli:

  • Out: Piotr Zielinski (muscle injury), Mario Rui (injury), Victor Osimhen (injury)

Lecce:

  • Out: Valentin Gendrey, Nicola Sansone, Lameck Banda, Kastriot Darmaku (injuries)
  • Doubtful: Mohamed Kaba (knee injury, late fitness test)

Probable Line-Up

Napoli XI: Meret (GK); Mzzochi, Rrahmani, Ostigard, Olivera; Anguissa, Lobotka, Cajuste; Politano, Simeone, Kvaratskhelia

Lecce XI: Falcone (GK); Venuti, Baschirotti, Pongracic, Gallo; Gonzalez, Ramadani, Berisha, Dorgu; Krstovic, Piccoli

Verdict 

Given Napoli’s recent form and scoring struggles, coupled with Lecce’s respectable defensive record, this match is likely to be a closely contested affair. Napoli will be motivated to push for a European spot, but their key absences and Lecce’s solid away performances suggest it won’t be straightforward.

Napoli have failed to score more than two goals in their last 15 home league games. Lecce have also kept their goals conceded to under three in most of their recent matches.

Lecce Asian Handicap +1.25

Reason: Napoli’s form has been poor, with only one win in their last nine matches. Lecce have been competitive on the road, making this handicap a valuable bet.

Both Teams To Score

Reason: Napoli have struggled to keep clean sheets, and Lecce have found the net in four of their last five away games. With Napoli’s defensive frailties, both teams scoring is a strong possibility.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia To Score

Reason: With Osimhen out, Kvaratskhelia will be Napoli’s main attacking threat. He has been in good form and has a high xG, making him a likely candidate to score.
