Lecce is aiming for an improved result after a 0-2 Serie A defeat to Udinese. In that game, Lecce managed 65% possession and 9 attempts at goal, while Udinese had 16 attempts.

In their last game, Atalanta had 66% possession and 13 shots on goal, while Juventus had 9 shots on goal and 2 on target. Their defenders have conceded 4 goals in their last six outings, while their forwards have scored 10. Atalanta has not been beaten in their last two away league matches.

The match was refereed by Ermanno Feliciani.

Lecce manager Luca Gotti will not allow Lameck Banda, Kaba, Dermaku, and Corfitzen to play due to knee surgery, cruciate ligament injuries, and a tear. Giallorossi is expected to use a 4-4-2 formation in the first half.

Atalanta boss Gian Gasperini is addressing player fitness concerns, with Emil Holm and Sead Kolasinac not ready for selection and Teun Koopmeiners suspended.
