The home side is enjoying a solid campaign in the Italian top flight, as they currently sit in 11th place in the table and ten points clear of the relegation zone.

Although Lecce has not been the most consistent on home soil, they have been difficult to beat in the league at the Stadio Comunale Via del Mare, losing just one of their last seven home league matches while also winning back-to-back home league matches against Atalanta and Lazio.

Leece’s recent home games in Serie A haven’t always been high-scoring, but both teams have scored in 15 of their last 16 league matches on home soil.

The reigning champions are unbeaten in five Serie A games, but they have also won just once in six games in the Italian top flight.

Last time out, the Rossoneri threw away a two-goal lead in the last five minutes to draw 2-2 with Roma at the San Siro.

The relative lack of consistency of late has played its part in Stefano Pioli’s team falling to third place in the Serie A table, seven points behind league leaders Napoli in the race for the Scudetto.

Milan has a decent recent away record in Serie A, winning four of their last six league matches on their travels while scoring at least two goals in each victory.
