As part of the 36th round of the Italian Serie B, Monza will host Lecce. Which of the fighters for direct promotion in the class will be stronger?
Thanks to two consecutive wins, Monza improved their standings and returned the chances of winning a direct ticket to Serie A. At the moment, Monza has 58 points and is located on the fourth line, being at a distance of three points from the second-placed Lecce. In the last five games, "Monza" has won two victories, and they happened in the previous two rounds: 2-1 was beaten by Cremonese and 3-1 by Salernitana.
But "Lecce" has lost the advantage over its competitors and its current second position is under a huge question. In the last three rounds, the team won only once, and lost twice. The opponents took advantage of this and reduced the handicap. Now Lecce itself has 61 points, Salernitana has 60, and Monza has 58. In the fight for a direct promotion in the class, Venice also participates, it has 56 points.
Statistics and figures:
- Monza won in the last two rounds;
- Lecce have lost two of their previous three games;
- Monza and Lecce have met 6 times: 2 wins for Monza, 1 for Lecce and three draws.
"Monza" has gained momentum, and "Lecce" needs to return stability and win, so as not to lose a direct ticket to Serie A. I propose to play a mutual performance.
