Lecce will entertain reigning champions AC Milan at the Stadio Comunale Via del Mare in Serie A on Saturday.

Both teams are undefeated in their last five league outings, picking up three wins and playing out a couple of draws. The hosts saw their winning run in the league come to an end after three games as they were held to a goalless draw against Spezia on Monday.

Milan also played out a draw last time around as they held Roma to a 2-2 stalemate at home. Pierre Kalulu and Tommaso Pobega gave them a two-goal lead but they conceded twice in the last 10 minutes as Roma picked up a hard-earned point.

Stefano Pioli’s men fell to a 1-0 defeat at home in the Coppa Italia against Torino on Wednesday and will be looking to return to winning ways.

Lecce vs AC Milan Prediction

The Giallorossi are undefeated in their last five league games, scoring seven goals while conceding just three goals in that period. They also head into the game with a week’s rest and are expected to produce a solid performance against their northern rivals.

The Rossoneri will be playing their fourth game in 10 days and fatigue might be a factor in this game. Nonetheless, considering their dominance against the hosts, a defeat for them looks unlikely. With that in mind, we expect the game to end in a draw.
