  • Venue: Stadio Comunale Via del Mare

Atalanta’s fight for a place in the top four will continue this weekend when they travel to Comunale Via del Mare where they will take on Lecce.

Lecce narrowly escaped relegation on their return to the Italian top flight last year and this season is likely to end similarly. Luca Gotti’s men sit just five points above the relegation zone, but they have a good chance of staying up as they separated from the bottom three by four teams. The Yellow and Reds enter this weekend’s game, looking to respond after a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Udinese on Monday – a loss that ended a four-game unbeaten run.

Atalanta have been cooking with gas in recent weeks. The visitors are without defeat in their last seven games at the time of writing and recorded six wins in that spell. Gian Piero Gasperini’s side secured their third consecutive win by beating Roma at home last weekend, but things won’t be straightforward this time around.

Lecce vs Atalanta Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals

None of the last five home games of Lecce have produced under 2.5 goals, but their meetings with Atalanta are often entertaining. Four of the last five meetings produced at least three goals and I fancy this weekend’s game to end similarly.

Atalanta have also had plenty of problems defensively of late. The visitors failed to keep a clean sheet in five of their last six games in the Italian Serie A and as many games produced at least three goals.

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals
  • Lecce vs Atalanta prediction: 1-2
