Inter Milan vs. Lecce Preview – Prediction, Team news, Lineups

Serie A leaders Inter Milan aim to maintain their impressive league form as they host Lecce at San Siro in their penultimate match of the year.

Match Preview

Inter Milan faced a disappointing elimination from the Coppa Italia against Bologna in a match where they dominated but failed to score, eventually succumbing to late strikes.

Simone Inzaghi’s side looks to recover from this setback and continue their strong league campaign.

Lecce, unbeaten in their last five games, faces a daunting challenge against Inter. Although they’ve struggled to secure wins on the road, they’ve shown resilience with several draws away from home, aiming to pose a tough challenge to the table-toppers.

Inter, looking to return to winning ways after their cup defeat, have been formidable at San Siro. They have secured three consecutive victories in the league at home without conceding, aiming to finish their home fixtures for the year on a high note.

On the other hand, Lecce has shown a tendency to score in their away games, hoping to continue this trend against a formidable Inter side, although a win would be a significant challenge.

Team News

Inter’s Martinez is doubtful due to a suspected thigh injury, possibly paving the way for Marko Arnautovic to start alongside Marcus Thuram.

However, they will miss several key players like Cuadrado, de Vrij, Dumfries, and Sanchez due to injuries.

Lecce, while buoyed by Banda’s standout performance in their previous game, has some injury concerns with players like Almqvist, Dorgu, Rafia, and Pongracic potentially unavailable.
