The formation of Liverani, back from the heavy internal defeat against Milan, arrives in Turin with several defections, among which those of Farias and Lapadula stand out.
Here are some statistics on the Stadium match provided by Opta:
Juventus have faced Lecce 31 times in Serie A: 19 wins, eight draws and four defeats for the bianconeri. Juventus and Lecce drew the last two Serie A crossings: the Apulians have never been undefeated for three games in a row in the competition against the bianconeri.
Juventus found the net in 14 of the 15 Serie A home matches against Lecce (38 goals scored, 2.5 on average): only 0-0 in February 1991 is an exception.
Juventus have not lost in 34 home games in the league (29V, 5N) and has kept the clean sheet in the last three: the bianconeri have not obtained four internal clean sheets in a row since March 2018 (seven in that case).
Lecce have conceded at least two goals in all their last five Serie A away games, failing to score in four of these (1V, 4P) – the Salentines have not conceded at least two goals in six away matches in the top league since November 2010.
Juventus did not find the goal in the last game played at the Stadium (0-0 v Milan in the Italian Cup): the last time it did not score in two internal matches in a row between all competitions dates back to 2011, under Luigi Delneri . Lecce could become the 20th team against which Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo finds the net in the top Italian championship and the 156th in total in career. Paulo Dybala has participated in at least one goal in all his last four Serie A appearances (three goals and one assist): he hasn’t had five games in a row in the same league since January 2016.
Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic found his first Serie A goal in November 2011, right against Lecce – in that match with the Roma shirt he also served an assist.
Lecce midfielder Riccardo Saponara played 17 games and scored seven goals in Serie A with Maurizio Sarri as coach, in the 2014/15 season with Empoli.
