Lecce vs Fiorentina headlines Serie A's round 23, bringing together two sides who have fallen short of expectations in 2024. This encounter promises a tense battle, as both teams fight to get their seasons back on track.

Head to Head Lecce vs Fiorentina Match

Lecce find themselves precariously close to the relegation zone, having dropped 14 points from winning positions this season - the highest in the league. Their recent form has been dismal, with only one point gathered in their last six games. Coach Roberto D'Aversa desperately needs a turnaround, but Lecce vs. Fiorentina history at the Stadio Via del Mare favors the visitors, with only one home win over La Viola in over two decades.

Fiorentina, on the other hand, have seen their Champions League dreams dwindle after a poor start to the year. Despite an eight-game unbeaten run to end 2023, they've yet to win in 90 minutes in 2024. Vincenzo Italiano's men are coming off a narrow defeat to Inter Milan, where they missed a crucial penalty. Key players like Nicolas Gonzalez are back from injury, but consistency remains a concern.

Key Points

Lecce: 14th in Serie A, just 3 points above the relegation zone with a struggling performance raising relegation doubts.

Fiorentina: 6th in Serie A, 2 points off the Champions League places, their position could translate in a hungry and decisive game against Lecce.

Record : Fiorentina unbeaten in the last 4 meetings. Lecce won only once in the last 20 meetings.

Key players: Lecce - John Björkengren, Gabriel Strefezza; Fiorentina - Nicolas Gonzalez, Gaetano Castrovilli (injured).

Prediction

Both teams are in desperate need of a win, but Fiorentina's superior squad and recent return to form make them slight favorites. Lecce vs. Fiorentina could be a tight affair, with a narrow victory for the visitors a likely outcome.
