Lecce vs Empoli Betting Tips

A potentially entertaining contest seems likely on Sunday as Lecce welcomes league leaders Lecce to town with both sides performing well in recent weeks.

Visiting Empoli enters this contest currently unbeaten in their last 12 league matches, a run which has helped them to establish a 4 point advantage over Citadella in 2nd place. Still, having drawn 6 of those 12 matches, Lecce will feel they could quite easily have established a bigger advantage at the summit of the table.

On their travels, Empoli is unbeaten in their last 6 with 3 wins, and 3 draws while 4 of those matches also saw BTTS, an outcome that does have a decent chance here with Empoli only managing 2 clean sheets in their last 8 on the road.

Indeed, Lecce, while one of the promotion favourites, has struggled for consistency this season and currently finds themselves in 6th spot, 8 points behind their opponents here.

The hosts have struggled in recent matches at home, winning just 1 of their last 5 league outings at the Comunale Via del Mare while 6 of their last 8 have seen BTTS.

Lecce is usually strong on home soil at this level, losing only 1 of their last 25 since November 2018 while they have now gone 4 unbeaten in Serie B, winning 2 and drawing 2 since Christmas. They had failed to win any of their previous 5.

Given all that, BTTS does seem to have every chance here at 1.6 odds. With Empoli struggling for away clean sheets, and Lecce usually strong on their own patch, I anticipate that we should see goals and a decent boot.
