Spezia v Lecce Match preview
Thiago Motta knows that his side needs to return to winning ways soon if they want to avoid the drop. The Aquilotti are winless in four games and their recent defeat came at the hands of Roma. With just two points separating them from the bottom three, the Liguria club is in trouble.
However, a good run in the Coppa Italia might help boost confidence.
Lecce have proven to be one of the most impressive sides in Serie B this time around. They’re currently in third place in the league standings and only recently saw their 15 game unbeaten streak come to an end. Marco Baroni would definitely be eyeing a Serie A scalp as he looks to guide his team back to topflight Italian football.
