Lecce and Lazio begin their Serie A campaigns on Sunday night when they meet at Stadio Via del Mare. The home side are beginning their second successive season in Serie A following their promotion from Serie B in 2022 and will be hoping to kick on after surviving by the skin of their teeth last season. Lazio, meanwhile, will be buoyed by their second-placed finish in 22/23 and will have their eyes set on winning the title. Ahead of the game, here are some free trips and conditions to consider.

The best Lecce vs Lazio predictions and picks

Lazio to win

Last season, Lazio enjoyed one of their best seasons in recent times finishing second in Serie A behind Napoli. Maurizio Sarri’s men built their success on a tight defence and efficient forward-play but based on their summer activity, they may well be a bit more expansive this season. Lecce have proven to be somewhat of a bogey team for Lazio in recent times, however, as it’s the season opener we believe Lazio’s class will shine through.

Lazio to keep a clean sheet

Last season, Lazio’s defence conceded just 30 league goals all season. This was bettered only by Napoli, the league champions, which goes to show that they are a tough nut to crack. The starting back line should be almost identical to last season, with Sarri focusing on attacking signings in the summer. We expect another clean sheet from them here.

Ciro Immobile to score anytime

Over the summer, Lazio have brought in more attacking players which should only benefit Ciro Immobile up front. Last year, he had to feed on scraps but still managed to net 12 league goals. Expect that number to increase this year with the likes of Isaksen and Castellanos playing next to him and we think he’ll get on the mark in the opener against Lecce.

Lecce vs Lazio: An intriguing opener


Lecce are one of Italy’s yo-yo teams which means they are perhaps due a relegation after managing to survive last season. The club have been relatively busy in the transfer market over the summer, but haven’t exactly made a marquee signing. Their home form was key to their survival last season so they will be excited about the prospect of starting their season in front of their fans.


The big news out of Lazio this summer was the sale of midfield maestro, Sergej Milinković-Savić, who has joined the Saudi Pro League. Milinkovic-Savic was one of Lazio’s most important players last season so it will be interesting to see how they get on without him this season.
