Sunday’s football game at Stadio Olimpico pits together Roma and Lecce, the two teams with entirely different ambitions for the 2022/2023 Serie A campaign.
The Romans are eyeing a spot in the Champions League, while the newcomers will give 100% to secure the elite division survival.
Jose Mourinho’s troops quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Atalanta, with the team beating Inter on the road on Matchday 8, meaning that they are high on spirits ahead of the visit of Lecce.
Tammy Abraham returns to the starting XI, while Paulo Dybala got injured after finding the net in the triumph over Inter.
All Ebrima Darboe, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Rick Karsdorp should miss out for the hosts as well.
The visitors, on the other hand, came from behind to share the spoils with Cremonese at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the “Eternal City”.
Since Lecce suffered a loss in each of their last six meetings with Roma at Stadio Olimpico, home win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team.
