AS Roma v Lecce – kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online

The Giallorossi are back to winning ways in Serie A and look to maintain their top four push against Lecce at the Stadio Olimpico

-

AS Roma look to earn consecutive victories when they welcome Lecce to the Stadio Olimpico in Matchday 9 of Serie A on Sunday. The Giallorossi are on a high after beating Inter and hope to close the gap on the top four.

Coach Jose Mourinho will be back in the dugout after serving a suspension against his former club, and the Portuguese tactician is determined to guide his team to consecutive wins for the first time since late August.

Lecce, meanwhile, are hoping to escape the threat of relegation with a scalp against their hosts, and come into the match having only lost once in their past five games.

AS Roma v Lecce: Predicted line-ups

AS Roma have an almost full-strength squad to choose from, with only long-term absentees Georginio Wijnaldum, Rick Karsdorp, and Ebrahim Darboe unavailable.

Despite going off against Inter, Paulo Dybala and Lorenzo Pellegrini are expected to be fit and available for the match in Rome.

Likewise, Lecce coach Marco Baroni has all of his options available to him, and will look to top scorer Gabriel Strefezza to add to his four goals this term.

AS Roma predicted XI v Lecce (3-4-3): Rui Patricio; Ibanez, Smalling, Mancini; Zeki Celik, Cristante, Pellegrini, Spinazzola; Dybala, Abraham, Zaniolo

Lecce predicted XI v AS Roma (4-1-4-1): Falcone; Gendrey, Pongraric, Baschirotto, Gallo; Hjulmand; Strefezza, Gonzalez, Askildsen, Banda; Colombo
