Lecce vs Sassuolo – Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips – 03.11.2019

With both teams just two points above the relegation zone, this fixture looms as an early season six-pointer. Leece should be confident of their chances, having held Juventus and AC Milan in two of their last three fixtures. However, only one Serie A (SA) point (D1, L3) and just two goals scored at home, dampens the spirits.
Their defensive record is concerning after failing to keep a clean sheet in ten SA games. Half of those fixtures featured over 3.5 total goals, with 70% seeing goals at both ends. Slow starts have been a recurring theme for Lecce, with seven of the nine total goals seen in their SA home matches arriving in the second half.
Sassuolo have stuttered too, with four losses in their last five SA games. Their league fixtures have averaged an entertaining 3.78 total goals this term, with four of their nine SA games producing over 4.5 goals. Most of that action comes early, as two-thirds of their SA conceded goals (12 of 18) have arrived before half-time.
Regardless, all four of the SA away goals Sassuolo have scored came in the second half. Three of their four SA away matches (W1, L3) have been decided by a single-goal margin, which makes the opening goal a potential game-winner, which was the case in eight of Sassuolo’s nine SA matches.
Players to watch: Both SA goals that Marco Calderoni (LEC) scored arrived in the second half. Meanwhile, Domenico Berardi has been Sassuolo’s first goalscorer in all three of the SA games he’s found the net in.
Stat attack: Both previous SA H2Hs were level at half-time and full-time.
Lecce have failed to score a first-half goal in seven of their ten SA matches.
Sassuolo have conceded 27.78% of their SA goals in the first 15 minutes.
Sassuolo haven’t won back-to-back SA away games since April-May 2017.
