Lecce plays host to Parma in Serie A soccer action from the Stadio Via del Mare on Sunday afternoon.

Lecce comes into this match in 18th place on 35 points with a record of 9 wins, 8 draws and 20 losses following a 2-1 win over Udinese in their last match. In the win over Udinese, Lecce fell behind in the 36th minute but they’d tie the game at one from the penalty spot just four minutes later off of the boot of Marco Mancosu. Mancosu would sub out in the 58th minute due to injury which was a big blow for Lecce at the time. Gianluca Lapaduia would give Lecce the lead in the 81st minute and Lecce would lock things down at the back from that point on, holding on for the win and a massive three points in the fight for their survival for next season. Mancosu leads Lecce in scoring with 14 goals but will miss this game due to the injury that was sustained in the last match. Lapaduia has 10 goals while Filippo Falco and Jacopo Petriccione each have 5 assists on the year to lead Lecce in that department.

Parma on the other hand, sit in 11th place on 46 points with a record of 13 wins, 7 draws and 17 losses following a 2-1 loss to Atalanta last time out. In the loss to Atalanta, Dejan Kulusevski would give Parma the lead in the 43rd minute, and the goal would hold up for a good chunk of the second half but Atalanta would tie the game at one in the 70th minute and Atalanta would surge in front 2-1 in the 84th minute. Parma would chase after an equalizing goal, but with just 37% possession in the second half and only two shots on goal, Parma would be left behind at full time as Atalanta picked up the win. Andreas Cornelius leads Parma in scoring with 11 goals but will miss this game due to injury. Kulusevski has 10 goals with a team-high 8 assists as well for Parma this year.

Lecce needs this win badly and the loss of Marco Mancosu for the final game due to injury is a big blow as he’s their top scorer. With that said, Lecce’s also shown a sense of urgency as of late, winning two of their last three games and while Parma has nothing to play for, they’ve also been a hard team to back since the restart. I just think that Parma’s coasting to the finish while Lecce has everything to play for here. I’ll take my chances with Lecce to pick up a huge win on the final matchday here.
