Lecce vs Cittadella: Top Free Betting Tips
Lecce have been the most impressive team this season and the only side with just 2 losses out of the entire league. Their main issue have been the draws, which make for almost 50% of their matches.
Total Goals – Under 2.5
We have two completely different teams in this matchup. Lecce are one of the teams with the most games with over 2.5 goals this season with 12/24 games. On the other side, Cittadella are the team that has had the fewest games with over 2.5 goals at 6 out of 24 total. We should mention that the teams have played a total of seven head-to-head games over the years and 6 out of them had more than 2.5 goals. Their previous match in September also ended in a 1:2 win for Lecce. However, we actually do not expect to see a goal from Cittadella and we see this game as a potential 2:0 win for Lecce.
Match Result – Lecce
We mentioned already that Lecce had a disappointing number of draws this season, which is the main reason why they are not leading the league with a high number of points. They are also the team that has not lost a single game at home yet with 8 wins and 4 draws at home. Most of the draws they had at home were against teams that are also in the promotion race and can be considered ‘top teams'. However, Cittadella have not been as good overall and their away performances are above-average at best. We think that Lecce will take the opportunity to win three more points and secure their top position.
Alternative Corners – Over 9
Lecce and Cittadella have taken a bunch of corners throughout the season. Lecce's overals are among the best in the league – 6.13 corners on average per game this season. Even more, at home, they had 6.67 corners per match. We should also mention that Cittadella also took a bunch of corners – 5.38 on average in all games and 5.67 in their away games alone. There is a curious negative factor here – both teams do not give a lot of corners to their opponents but we think that we will see at least 10 in this important fixture.
