Tip Reasoning

  • Roma have won nine of their 14 games at the Stadio Olimpico this term. Only Inter, AC Milan, and Juventus have won away at Roma this season.
  • Lecce have conceded just 15 goals in Serie B this season, the joint-best defence in Italy’s second tier.
  • Although Jose Mourinho’s team have won three of their last five home matches, they’ve only scored five goals during that run.

Roma looking to end cup hoodoo

Roma have not won the Coppa Italia since 2008, failing to reach the final since 2013. Jose Mourinho’s team are seven points behind Italy’s top four, and the domestic cup looks to be the increasingly frustrated ex-Chelsea boss’s best hope of success this campaign.

Despite their inconsistent results, Roma have a strong home record under the special one, winning nine of their 14 games at the Stadio Olimpico in Serie A and the Europa League Conference this season. Only Inter Milan, AC Milan, and Juventus have beaten Roma on their own turf this term, and Mourinho’s side have lost just one of their last six home games.

However, the Coppa Italia visit of second tier Lecce looks unlikely to be a complete walk in the park for the hosts. Lecce have the joint-best defence in Serie B, conceding just 15 goals in 18 league games, and they have lost just one of their last 18 games in all competitions.

Lecce can keep it competitive

Roma have won three of their last five home games, but have only scored five goals during that run. With Lecce having a rock-solid defensive record, and having kept a clean sheet against Serie A side Spezia in the last round of the Coppa Italia, they should have enough about them to keep the scoreline respectable against their more illustrious opponents.

As a result, backing Roma to win and under 3.5 match goals to be scored looks to be a strong play, with a relatively comfortable 2-0 home win seeming a decent correct score prediction.
