The third force of the championship against the fifth-last. In theory there would be no history, but this Lazio-Lecce is a page to be written. Because the Salento have already beaten the biancocelesti in the first leg and - above all - because the performances of Baroni's team have certainly been more strong against the battleships than against the direct competitors, as demonstrated by the internal defeat with Verona. For sure both challengers need points. Lazio must strengthen the placement in the Champions Zone - just 3 points ahead of Milan, fifth - possibly regaining that second place now the prerogative of Juventus (but the Bianconeri continue to weigh the sword of Damocles of the reformulation of the penalty as part of the capital gains investigation). Sarri's team wants to quickly forget, however, the empty passage of the Meazza where the Rossoneri won 2-0.

The Giallorossi under the orders of Mr. Baroni instead need salvation points (just 4 those collected in 10 games). Difficult to repeat the success of the first leg on the biancocelesti; a draw would be a good haul and then challenge the third last Spezia at Via del Mare, on which the Salento (at +4) have now calibrated the race for the stay in the top flight.
