Serie A Matchday 20: Lecce-Torino

An absolute must win. If we do not win this we will have a very difficult time staying up, IMO. Considering we have a Coppa Italia match against Lazio tomorrow followed by this on Sunday, I would hope Novellino would keep our players ready for the more important weekend match. If he wants to play strong in both matches though that could explain why he rested some of our best players against Roma last Sunday. Here is the expected lineup:

Bianchi

Rosina-------------------

Diana - Säumel - Dzemaili - Abate

Ogbonna - Dellafiore - Di Loreto - Colombo

Sereni

Bench: Calderoni, Natali, Pisano, Vailatti, Corini, Amoruso, Stellone

Good to see Corini back on the bench, though why Di Loreto is in there instead of Natali is beyond me.

We beat them 3-0 at our place in the first week of the season (contrary to the C4 preview ) so hopefully we can win this one. Their home form has been very poor, but our away form has been poorer. This could very well be a draw, which is definitely not what we need, though if we beat Reggina a week from today then it could be OK.

Anyways, FORZA TORO!!!

FORZA VECCHIO CUORE GRANATA!

Anyone got the match available for download, or links? I only saw the goals, and would like to see the whole thing.

We got fairly lucky, the Lecce 'keeper was terrible today. Not the worst result considering our away record, but this means we definitely must beat Reggina this week.

So I've seen the highlights (would also like a full match if its possible), but man, the team is still a mess. The defending was very poor on all three goals - even though the first one was a great shot, there is no way Munari should have been given all that room. The attack seems to be hopeless, Bianchi has seemingly lost all of what made him so great at Reggina, but maybe because his service is poor. We are terrible at giving good balls into the box.

No, we also earned a point each away to Reggina and Chievo towards the beginning of the season. Still an abysmal away record. (Though Reggina's is worse.)
