Lecce vs Udinese Free Betting Tips
The gap between the points in the table cellar is extremely small and the extended relegation zone begins at position twelve. A direct duel in the table cellar on this matchday is the encounter between promoted Lecce and Udinese!
The duel between the two teams can also be described as a kind of “hardship against misery”. The newcomer from Lecce is the weakest home team in the league and has not won any of the eight previous games in the Ettore Giardinero (four draws, four defeats).
The guests from Friuli are a welcome guest, because no other team has scored fewer points abroad than Udinese! Accordingly, no favorite can be identified and the bookmakers offer balanced odds in the duel between Lecce and Udinese.
Lecce – statistics & current form
The fans of the Apulian club US Lecce have had every reason to cheer in recent years. Head coach Fabio Liverani (former professional at Lazio Rome or Fiorentina, among others) managed to move from Serie C to Serie A. This year, only relegation counts. The team currently occupies 16th place and would thus secure relegation.
However, the advantage over 18th place is only a meager counter. The Liverani team are missing points in front of their home crowd this season. None of the eight Serie A home games to date have won Lecce this season. Four draws face four defeats. The three previous wins of the season were celebrated abroad (Torino FC, SPAL and Fiorentina).
At the end of the year, the promoted team suffered two losses in a row against Brescia and Bologna. For the third time this season, the Liverani team suffered two bankruptcies in a row, but there have never been three defeats. For a continuation of this series, the bookmakers between Lecce and Udinese offer 1 or X odds around 1.55 for the bet on the double chance!
With an average of 3.35 goals per game, Lecce’s games are extremely entertaining. In 71 percent of the cases, the bet on over 2.5 was the right choice. On Epiphany, Lecce and Udinese offer just over 1.70 for the prediction of over 2.5 goals.
Lecce has proven several times that the offensive game is very pleasing. However, the lack of a top striker is striking. The last seven goals in the domestic championship were all scored by different players.
Probable lineup of Lecce:
➠ Gabriel – Dell’Orco, Lucioni, Rossettini, Rispoli – Petriccione, Tachtsidis, Tabanelli – Mancosu – Babacar, Falco

Udinese – statistics & current form
After three top five places in a row, the team from Friuli has not achieved a single-digit place in the table since the 2013/14 season. The relegation battle is now a constant companion at the Udinese Calcio club, founded in 1896. Head coach Luca Gotti’s team currently has a bit of air and is 14th in the table. With just four points ahead of the first relegation zone currently held by Brescia Calcio, the situation is anything but relaxed.
The greatest weakness in Udinese’s game is undoubtedly the offensive game. This can also be clearly seen in the bare numbers. In 17 league games, the team from Friuli has just scored 13 goals. Only the penultimate table SPAL Ferrara has even less often accommodated the “round in the corner” with twelve goals. With three goals each, strikers Stefano Okaka and Kevin Lasagna are the best scorers.
In the last game of the year, the head coach Luca Gotti’s team celebrated a surprising 2-1 home win against the formidable Sicilians from Cagliari. Outstanding player on the field was Ivorian Seko Fofana, who initially prepared the 1-0 lead in an exemplary manner before scoring the winner himself in minute 85 after equalizing. Fofana was directly involved in three of the last four Udinese goals. Should Fofana hit again, there will be odds around 5:00 between Lecce and Udinese
So far, things have gone as badly for Udinese Calcio as for Lecce in front of a home crowd. So far, the team has collected four points in eight games and has only scored six goals. Three of these six goals were scored in the only away win against CFC Genoa.
Probable lineup of Udinese:
➠ Musso – Nuytinck, De Maio, Troost-Ekong – Sema, Mandragora, de Paul, Fofana, Stryger Larsen – Lasagna, Okaka
Last games from Udinese:
⚽️ 12/21/2019 – Udinese Calcio vs. Cagliari Calcio 2: 1 (Serie A)

⚽️ 07.12.2019 – Udinese Calcio vs. Napoli 1: 1 (Serie A)

Lecce vs Udinese Free Betting Tips
Weakness at home receives weakness away – with a draw both teams would live up to their reputation, but a look at the statistics shows that such a tip between Lecce and Udinese can be classified as unrealistic.
Udinese surprised before the turn of the year with the win against Cagliari, but due to the weakness away, which was already evident in the previous year (3-5-11 balance sheet), the slightly lower odds on the Gotti-Elf definitely have no value!
Key facts – Lecce vs Udinese tips
💡 No home win – there were four draws and four losses for the promoted team in front of a home crowd
💡 Only one of the 26 Serie A duels ended in a draw
💡 Four away points – Udinese is the weakest away team in the league
The newcomer from Lecce plays pleasant football. The 2: 3 home loss to FC Bologna in the last game was the first loss after four home draws. Among other things, Lecce drew against Juventus and has now scored at least two goals in each of the last four home games.
The first home win is long overdue – and we are confident that the Liverani team will reward themselves. A little risk is not to be dismissed out of hand, but between Lecce and Udinese we see good chances of success when predicting the home win. The tip is played with a moderate use of four units!
