The Serie A league leaders are in action this weekend, Inter Milan have taken advantage of a slip from Juventus, and have powered nine points clear. That could be less by the time they play, with Juventus kicking off earlier, and the team trying to stop Inter this week is Lecce, safe for now, but it won't take much for them to slip into the relegation battle, if they're not careful.Lecce Form Guide
Lecce begin the weekend in 13th position, and normally, you would assume that puts them well clear of the danger zone. But with 24 points, they are just four clear of the relegation zone, there's a lot of teams involved, but at the same time, it won't take long for them to get dragged in.
And they come here on the back of two losses from their last two games, and a total of four defeats from their last five. They were beaten 2-0 at Torino last week, and 4-0 at Bologna before that, two really disappointing losses. Their sole win in the last five was a 3-2 home success over Fiorentina.Inter Milan Form Guide
When Inter Milan were away in the Italian Super Cup, a weekend off let Juventus go ahead of them in the title race. Fast forward a month and Inter Milan have been perfect, while Juventus have stalled and they begin the weekend nine points clear. That could be six by the time this game kicks off, but on the other side, if Juventus lose again, this is a chance for Inter to make it 12, and double figures.
Inter have won their last six in the league, and three of the last four have also come with a clean sheet attached. Their win at the weekend was a big 4-0 success over bottom club Salernitana, while this month they've beaten title rivals Juventus 1-0 at home in what was a huge game.Match Prediction
This is a big game at both ends, I'll take Inter Milan to get what should be a comfortable win in the end. They should have way too much quality for Lecce, who with a loss here, could get further sucked into the relegation battle.
