Juventus have numerous issues coming into this fixture; the first is they will be without suspended Danilo, after he picked up a red card against Bologna. Both Alex Sandro and Mattia De Sciglio are injured which could lead to Matudi filling in at right-back. Legend, Giorgio Chiellini could return to the bench, after he has missed the previous fixtures due to lack of match fitness. Juventus are also without Sami Khedira and Gonzalo Higuain who are both still injured.


3:17 PMa year ago

A must win for both sides!

The game tomorrow is a must win for both sides, with Juventus going for the title and Lecce fighting a relegation battle. Due to Lazio losing their first game back, Juventus extended their lead at the top of Serie A to four points and will be hoping for their fifth straight Serie A victory and maintain their lead over Lazio. On the other side of the table, Lecce find themselves in 18th place, which is the final relegation spot. They are level on points with Genoa and only three points behind Sampdoria, who are in 16th place. Both teams will be needing all three points on Friday!

3:16 PMa year ago

Different stories for both sides earlier this week.

It was the first game back in Serie A for both sides on Monday, with Juventus bouncing back from their Coppa Italia Final defeat; whilst Lecce were hammered by AC Milan. Juventus were comfortable 2-0 winners against Bologna but Danilo received a red card in the 91st minute, which means he will be ruled out of the game. Lecce suffered a 4-1 defeat at home to the hands of AC Milan. Lecce scored in the 54th minute, to equalize, however, they would concede only a minute later and then go on to concede two more.
