In the last two years, since coming to Serie A, Salernitana have been around the relegation zone, finishing 17th and 15th. Unfortunately, it seems that the Garnets will play in Serie B next season. Currently, they are 20th with 14 points, 11 points away from the safe zone. The club tried to shift their poor momentum by changing the coach around a month ago, but nothing has changed.

Lecce barely secured survival last season, finishing five points above the danger zone. This year, the Yellow and Reds looked like they would have a much better season and avoid the relegation battle. However, with only one win in the last 12 games, Lecce complicated their lives and are only one point away from relegation. Also, after the game vs Verona, the club sacked their coach, and it will be interesting to see how they respond to that. 

Salernitana vs Lecce pick: Under 2.5 goals

These two teams are among the worst offensive teams in the league, with 23 (Salernitana) and 25 (Lecce) scoring goals in 28 rounds. Only Empoli scored fewer goals than these two teams (22). Also, both teams are in terrible form, with only one win in the last 14 and 12 games. 

In recent matches, Salernitana scored four goals in the last six games - 0.67 per game. At the same time, Lecce only scored once in the last five! 

In the first h2h game, Lecce won 2:0 at home, with one goal coming from the penalty spot. Considering the previous h2h game, poor offensive performances from both teams throughout the season, and terrible goalscoring displays in recent games, we strongly believe we will see fewer than three goals.

Salernitana team news

One of the better midfielders, Grigoris Kastanos, received a fifth yellow card in the previous game and will serve his one-game suspension. The 26-year-old Cyprian scored three and assisted on three goals in Serie A. He is a big part of their offense, considering he participated in over a quarter of their goals. 

Jerome Boateng, Niccolo Pierozzi, and Norbert Gyomber, who missed the previous games due to injuries, should remain sidelined.

Lecce

Lecce team news

Lecce decided to sack their coach, Roberto D'Aversa after he headbutted Hellas Verona player Thomas Henry. The club appointed Luca Gotti, who previously was in charge of Spezia and Udinese.

One of the team's best offensive players, Lameck Banda, received his fifth yellow card and will serve his one-game suspension. He participated in 24% of their goals (two goals and four assists). 

Mohamed Kaba, who missed the previous game, will most likely be sidelined for a long time due to a knee injury. Also, Kastriot Dermaku and Federico Brancolini will remain sidelined with their injuries.
