Analysis and forecast for the match of the 5th round of Serie A “Torino” – “Lecce” (05.09.2022)
The program of the 5th round of the Italian championship ends with a match of unequal teams. Torino, under the leadership of Croatian specialist Ivan Juric, continues its unstable movement along the tournament distance – for every victory there is a game with a loss of points. This time, a newcomer to the elite Lecce division will come to Turin, who still does not have a single victory in his asset. Thus, the hosts have a great chance to gain a foothold at the top of the table.
Spartak – Zenit, Manchester United – Arsenal, Dzyuba’s third match in Turkey: what to watch on September 4
This match is very important for Torino in terms of scoring also because there is a difficult calendar ahead – in a week there will be a battle with Inter. Juric’s team is hardly ready for such pressure in defense. For at the start, she has obvious difficulties in the game at her gate, which in general is easily explained by not the most successful transfer campaign.
Andrey Mostovoy: Dzyuba silently left the chat and did not say anything goodbye.
Last season, the Bulls were in the top 8 of the league in terms of major defensive stats, especially with steals and blocked shots. In the summer, the key defender Bremer left the team, who went not to Inter, who offered a promising defender for a replacement along with the money, but to Juventus for more serious money. Naturally, the coach did not like this, because the defense instantly became worse.
As a result, now in many respects Yurich relies on those defenders who were left without proper reinforcement. In terms of missed shots, Turintsy are still at the same level, but it is important to note the opponents. They were scored even by newcomers – Monza and Cremonese, and they scored absolutely deservedly. Therefore, now Torino will once again rely primarily on attacking activity.
“Torpedo” – “Rostov”. Valery Karpin also wants to be a leader
Ahead of the hosts things are much better. A replacement for the longtime scorer Andrea Belotti was found in advance in the person of the promising Pietro Pellegri, although Alexei Miranchuk and Nikola Vlasic play a key role in the future. The injury of the Russian striker is ruining Yurich’s plans so far, but the “bulls” still score regularly. In terms of the effectiveness of attacks, they are among the best, however, the implementation fails – they should have scored more “Monza” and “Cremonese”, and could well beat “Lazio” (0:0) away.
Lecce should be wary of such an opponent, especially because of their own style of play, because Marco Baroni’s team has already established itself as one of the most courageous in Serie A. Wolves play very aggressively in defense, regularly moving high forward to meet an opponent with the ball . They are among the leaders in interceptions in their half of the field, and also top the table in fouls.
Matvey Safonov advised Krasnodar players not to think about the championship.
You can hardly blame Lecce for this style of play, because this team does not have so many resources. After winning the Serie B, the guests weren’t really able to strengthen their squad. Leases were the only option available to improve, and no one came from the category of really valuable players. What is Wolfsburg defender Marin Pongrachich worth, who in all his teams got involved in scandals more than he played at the proper level.

In attack, Lecce also has little choice. In the first four rounds, the “wolves” did not win a single victory, but that’s not even the problem. During this period, only once were they able to score at least one goal. Nevertheless, in the last two rounds, the team acted very well – they played excellently with Empoli as the second number and could claim victory (1: 1), and they took away points from Napoli without even converting a penalty.
It is worth noting that the draw with the Neapolitans was the first for Lecce after three defeats. Nevertheless, the Baroni team performs relatively well on the road – they have not had a single defeat with a difference of more than one goal in their last 11 matches. However, there is only one victory during this period, and, of course, it is necessary to immediately make a reservation that most of the matches were in the second division of Italy.
Torino also perform at home inconspicuously, having obtained only two victories in the last 10 meetings. Interestingly, in the previous three head-to-head matches with Lecce, the Bulls had two defeats. But now is not the case. Turin are not able to get a big victory at this stage, they have not scored more than two goals in Serie A for seven games in a row and have not won by more than one goal during this period also never.
Lecce plays quite aggressively and is not at all afraid to move forward at the first opportunity, and he could not score in the first four rounds only once. Therefore, there should be no problems with goals in this meeting. In addition, with rivals of this level, Torino has not yet lost points in its field. Let’s consider the victory of the hosts and the total over 2.5 goals with a coefficient of 2.65.
Forecast and bet on the match of the Italian championship “Torino” – “Lecce” on September 5, 2022
A battle of teams solving completely opposite tournament tasks in conditions of limited resources. “Torino” again, with a successful set of circumstances, can claim a place in European competition, but so far the “bulls” have obvious difficulties. They have a dismantled defense, which has seriously lost quality after the departure of the best player. There are prospects in the attacking line, but there are also problems due to injuries.
Therefore, in many ways, the success of the hosts is now based on the coaching ideas of Ivan Yurich. The Turintsy have not yet made serious mistakes in games with teams that returned to Serie A only this year, but they won only minimal victories over them and regularly conceded goals. Lecce is now the most serious opponent from the top three – he is very uncompromising and always ready to punish for a mistake. And this time the guests will also have a chance to score. However, Torino cannot lose points at home now.
Bid: Torino win and total over 2.5 goals for 2.65.
Pavlyuchenko: only Spartak is now able to compete with Zenit.
