Match Preview

Torino have started their Serie A (SA) season strongly, with two wins that have both produced over 2.5 total match goals and a one-goal margin of victory. However, they are very much a second-half side these days, with 14 of their last 17 SA goals coming after the break, including three of five this season.
Along the same lines, 34 of Torino’s 52 SA goals last season were scored after the break. The 15-minute period after the break was their most prolific, with 36.54% of Torino’s goals (19 of 52) scored during that period in 2018/19.
Aiming to avoid a first three-loss start in a Serie A season since 1997/98, Lecce conceded a majority (31) of the 45 Serie B (SB) goals scored against them in 2018/19 after the break. They have every reason to dread this match, with Lecce squads conceding over 1.5 goals in six of their last seven league trips, including SB games.
Overall, Lecce’s life back in the Italian top flight has started badly, with two losses making it their fourth SA loss in a row, in a sequence going back to the 2011/12 season. That includes a loss away from home, making it five defeats in their last seven league trips (W1, D1, L5), going back to their preceding SB campaign.
Players to watch: Andrea Belotti (TOR) has started the SA season with a second-half goal, to go with nine of 15 from last term.
Lecce’s deadline day signing, Khouma Babacar, comes with 36 career goals in SA, 25 of which have come after the break.
Stat attack: Torino have scored over 1.5 goals in eight of their last nine SA home games.
Sixteen of Torino’s 38 SA games last season were goalless at the break.
Lecce have shut out Torino in just two of their 14 SA H2Hs, and conceded in each of the last 11.
