In one of five games from Serie A on Sunday, Fiorentina look to continue their excellent recent form when they welcome Lecce.Fiorentina Form Guide
Fiorentina come into the weekend in 12th position, they have 34 points and that has been helped by a very good recent run, where they have been playing some of their best football of the season. They come here on the back of three straight wins, two of those have come with clean sheets, and one came against a team in the top four.
Last weekend, they won 2-0 away at Cremonese, while the weekend before, they had an excellent 2-1 victory over high flying AC Milan. Before that, it was an excellent 3-0 win over Verona, so two of their three recent wins have come with clean sheets, another positive for Fiorentina.Lecce Form Guide
While Fiorentina have been heading in the right direction, it's been the wrong direction for Lecce. They come here in 15th place with 27 points, that puts them behind Fiorentina in the standings, but only tells half of the story. They come here on the back of three defeats in a row, and are looking for something to turn them around.
Last weekend, Lecce were beaten 2-0 by Torino, while before that they suffered a defeat by the same scoreline against Inter Milan and three games ago, they were beaten 1-0 by Sassuolo. The key point to all those losses is that Lecce haven't even managed a goal in them, they need to get back to scoring.Match Prediction
A game where both teams are quite evenly matched at their best, but right now, there is one heading in the right direction and one going the wrong way. We have to go with the form team here, Fiorentina have won three games in a row, and they can make it four here, Fiorentina are the pick to win this game.
