Juventus host Lecce at the Allianz Stadium on Serie A Matchday 33 with both sides needing a victory to keep their respective ambitions in progress.

The Bianconeri recently had their 15-point penalty suspended as they await a new trial for capital gains and it gives them a chance to secure a Champions League spot. Meanwhile, the Salentini could be at risk of being dragged into the relegation zone despite looking safe for quite some time. A win would increase the gap between them and Spezia, if the Ligurian side struggle to collect points.

When the two clubs previously faced each other in Serie A, a stunning goal from Italian starlet Nicolo Fagioli was enough to give Juventus victory. Will another piece of magic be enough for the Bianconeri to get the win or will Lecce spring a surprise?
