A few days following an important victory in Europe, AC Milan will make their homecoming at Stadio Via del Mare on Saturday afternoon. While Milan has struggled lately in Serie A and had a slow start to the Champions League, their victory against Paris Saint-Germain midweek will put behind them thoughts of a 4-match losing streak; their hosts, on the other hand, have not triumphed since September.
Last Saturday, Lecce was extremely unfortunate as they lost to Roma at the Stadio Olimpico after conceding twice in the final minutes. The Salentini likely believed it would be a good day after escaping a penalty kick far from home within 5 minutes of play. Lecce, meanwhile, has already lost 6 straight games and must now contend with Milan, a team that is just as hungry for points. Lecce’s recent performance hasn’t always been against Serie A’s top clubs, therefore they must make quick progress. Generally speaking, Roberto D’Aversa can count on his team to put in everything they have. But if Lecce is to secure a much-needed victory, he could have to rely on Milan being worn out following midweek Champions League activity.
At Milan, Stefano Pioli is presumably under much more pressure, particularly following a dismal Champions League season. Although he has already stated that he accepts full responsibility, he does not want to offer the Milan owners an opportunity to think about his future with the team. The Rossoneri have played rivals Juventus and Napoli during their previous 3 Serie A contests, but they have not triumphed in any of them. Although handing Udinese their first victory of the campaign at the San Siro this past weekend may be judged undesirable, the way the defeats were handled was perhaps more of an issue. Even though this matchup with Lecce won’t be easy, Pioli might be able to enjoy himself a bit more this coming weekend. To win all three points, he might have to rely once more on Olivier Giroud, who has always been dependable.
