Almost evenly matched AS Roma and Lecce in the league table will play their Serie A match on Sunday at Stadio Olimpico.
Roma reverted to her previous behaviors just as everything seemed to be coming together. Giallorossi headed to Giuseppe Meazza with the sole intention of escaping with a point, since Jose Mourinho was suspended following an inexplicable red card in a 1-0 victory against Monza. They ‘parked the bus’ in close proximity to Rui Patricio’s net as per the manager’s suggestion, only to have Marcus Thuram ruin all of their diligent efforts in the 81st minute of play.
With a late winner, Inter ended Roma’s Serie A winning run at 3 games, shattering their hopes of closing the gap on 4th-place Atalanta to 5 points. Going back to the Stadio Olimpico, where they have won their previous 5 competitive matches, the past victors of the Europa Conference League will be looking to beat Lecce, who are now struggling. While Leonardo Paredes is suspended from the game, Paulo Dybala and Tammy Abraham are still in the recovery area.
Following a fantastic start that had the team climbing as high as 3rd place at the culmination of September, the Salentini faded in subsequent months. But Lecce has fallen back to 11th place in the standings after 5 matches without a victory.
All that separates Lecce from collecting no results from their past 3 matches is a tie. They secured a point during a 1-1 draw with Udinese before losing badly over Torino 0-1 on the scoreboard. The previous time around, Parma emerged victorious 2-4, causing even greater disappointment. Lecce has only been victorious once in their last 6 Serie A road matches. In addition to winning a single one, they also lost one time, drew 4 and scored 7 goals while allowing 7. With a foot injury, midfielder Alexis Blin is still sidelined, and defender Kastriot Dermaku is questionable and will be evaluated prior to kickoff.
