Atalanta travels to Lecce to look for the lost points at home and not continue to move away from Napoli, while the locals do not want to fall into the relegation zone.
Lecce has had a very bad start to the season and is close to the last three places that have a direct place in Serie B.
Atalanta was neck-and-neck with Napoli, but lost to them this weekend, giving the team a free hand and also falling to fourth place.

Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Lecce
Lecce is in danger. Marco Baroni’s team has had a very bad start to the season, where they have only been able to add 1 victory (against Salernitana by 1-2) and are in 16th place with only 9 points. There have been 6 draws, which has them together with Cremonese as the team with the most equalities, but also with 10 goals in favor, they are the second-worst attack in the entire league. On the other hand, despite his place in the table, they only have 16 goals against and are one of the best defenses.
Over the weekend, they equalized away from home with Udinese (1-1) in their second as visitors. The other was, incredibly, against Napoli. At home, they have achieved 4 draws, all by 1-1, and lost to Inter (1-2) and Juventus (0-1).
They have the youngest average age in all of Serie A (23.9) and it shows on the pitch, so experienced players like Samuel Umtiti or Wladimiro Falcone have to take the lead.
Why Bet on Atalanta
Atalanta suffered twice this weekend. On the one hand, they lost at home to Napoli (1-2), and on the other, they fell to fourth place and are now 8 points behind the leader. Without a doubt, it was a hard blow for those from Bergamo but they have to recover immediately or they will continue to drop as things at the top are tight.
Among the team’s casualties are those of Colombian Luis Fernando Muriel and Italian Davide Zappacosta, both due to injury.
Those led by Gasperini are the second-best visitors in the tournament with 5 wins and 1 draw, so it can be assured that they are better playing outside their stadium, and they hope this time will not be the exception.
Final Betting Analysis: Lecce vs. Atalanta
Atalanta comes out with the obligation to win to make up lost ground at home, while Lecce also has the need or will soon be in the relegation places. As we have seen, those from Bergamo are great visitors while Lecce has shown a lot of weakness throughout the tournament, especially on the attacking front, and now it’s going to face the third-best defense. We believe that Atalanta will win.
