Lecce vs Genoa – Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips – 08.12.2019

With five draws in their last seven Serie A (SA) matches, Lecce’s season might have turned a new chapter. However, just one SA H2H win ever in 12 attempts and a winless home season so far (D3, L3) makes this match a tricky one to call. Either way, with 55 goals conceded and just three cleansheets between the sides this SA season, there is a lot of scope for entertainment.
Along those lines, eight of Lecce’s 14 SA matches have produced over 3.5 total match goals, they are yet to concede a SA goal within the first 15 minutes, and 59.26% of their goals against have come in the second half. That said, Lecce have scored first in just five of their 14 SA matches.
Genoa travel here on the back of a five-match winless run (D2, L3) and have opened the scoring in only three of 14 SA matches. Like their hosts, 64.29% of Genoa’s SA goals against were conceded during the second half. Furthermore, ten of those 28 goals against were conceded beyond the 75th minute.
Understandably so, Genoa are rooted to the bottom of the second-half table. They are without a league win on their travels (D3, L4), but have drawn the last two in that sequence. Barring those two, five of Genoa’s SA away matches have produced over 2.5 total match goals, with four witnessing over 3.5.
Players to watch: Marco Mancosu has been Lecce’s last goal scorer in each of the four SA matches he’s struck, while 20-year-old forward Andrea Pinamonti (GEN) scored a brace in his side’s 3-2 win in the cup on Tuesday, and will be up for this league clash.
Stat attack: Lecce have failed to score a first-half goal in seven of the last ten SA H2Hs.
Genoa are yet to score first away from home this SA campaign.
Genoa’s last five SA games have been level at the break, with the last three remaining goalless.
