Fiorentina is desperate to shrug off recent disappointments and reclaim its spot among the top four as it pays a visit to the struggling Lecce at Stadio Via del Mare on Friday.

Lecce vs Fiorentina Betting Tips: Fiorentina to Win

The Apulia-based club stands out as the most out-of-form side in the Italian top-flight in recent weeks, having managed to put a meager point on the board from a possible 18 in their previous six league challenges since registering a narrow 2-1 triumph against Frosinone in mid-December.

Regrettably, the mentioned success remains a lone bright spot in the midst of a woeful streak of results, spanning an incredible 17 fixtures in all competitions, and coach Roberto D'Aversa is facing mounting pressure as his team—usually considered draw specialists with nine such results this term—has lost the knack for clinching shared outcomes.

Despite finding ways to take the lead, their disorganized and shaky defensive line has cost them a huge amount of points this campaign, and one such instance occurred last timeout when an early lead was squandered in just six minutes, ultimately resulting in a 1-2 defeat against Genoa, condemning them to a fifth loss in the last six SA affairs.

Returning to Stadio Via del Mare may instill a sense of positivity, given that they've collected a whopping 16 out of 21 points this term on home turf, but the Giallorossi were heavily beaten 0-3 by Juventus in their last home action, making it difficult to envision a swift return to the right track, especially after Viola beat them in two of the last three H2Hs here.

Lecce's opponent on Friday is also not performing at an admirable level in the past few weeks, considering their disastrous start to the new calendar year, and if we exclude their victory via penalties against Bologna in the Coppa Italia quarterfinals, it means that Fiorentina has yet to taste the sweetness of victory in 2024.

In a concerning dip of form among those chasing a European ticket, managing just one point from the opening Serie A contests in the new year (D1, L2), and sitting only two points away from the leading quartet, Vincenzo Italiano's men must urgently shake off their winter slumber to resume the quest for a Champions League berth.

However, there is no doubt that visiting a Lecce side who are going through scoring agony offers the ideal opportunity for the Viola to grab the necessary three points which could see them back in the top four again depending on other results. Even if they are not in optimal condition, a strong response is expected from the Tuscan squad for recent stumbles.

Lecce team news

The absence of experienced centre-back Kastriot Dermaku for the entire season, due to an ACL tear, has left a void in the team, and to add to that, his compatriot Ylber Ramadani will be unavailable for the Fiorentina match due to accumulating yellow cards.

Hamza Rafia and Lameck Banda are set to keep their starting roles after their return from the Africa Cup of Nations, but manager Roberto D'Aversa is pondering adjustments following his team's dip in form with a third consecutive loss in the last timeout.
