Even if their victory at home against Torino was expected in some way, their three-pointer away to Napoli is a huge surprise of the previous round. The team was awarded for their great fighting spirit as they didn't just surprise on a couple of occasions scoring goals, but the team really had a great number of goalscoring opportunities.
Lapadula scored twice, with Mancosu added one goal while the players of Napoli only reduced in the 90th minute, without being able to get back into the match despite a little bit of the more possession.
Surely, kind of a shocking result for everyone, but Lecce really appeared fearless this time and deserved those points. After two unexpected victories, there's no other way for Lecce but to try to exploit the momentum and seek another one - after all, they are just three points above the red zone placed Genoa and can benefit a lot from it.
Lecce team news
The hosts will miss forward Farias (12/2), while doubtful for this match are goalkeeper Gabriel (21/0), defender Meccariello (8/0) and midfielder Tachtsidis (17/0) all coming off from various injury problems at the moment.
Spal is struggling all season long and it doesn't come as a surprise that they have three consecutive defeats now, staying on the rock bottom position. Their third in a row came last weekend when they welcomed Sassuolo in a 1:2 loss.
Players of Spal took the lead in the 23rd minute with a goal from Bonifazi, but looking overall it came against the flow of the match, while the price got paid in the second halftime when Sassuolo increased the tempo and got the victory with a late, but deserved goal.
Even though they had the early lead, they simply didn't look like a side having enough energy nor the momentum to stop the things going wrong way later on. They are now seven points behind the safe placed Lecce and would surely benefit from a victory here since they need to narrow the gap if they are to stay competitive for salvation.
Spal team news
The guests continue to miss right midfielder D'Alessandro (4/0) and striker Cerri (11/1) both out injured.
With an improved form that Lecce has, it's difficult not to see them winning again. Spal remains with questionable individual quality, while their form and defensive reliability are completely unstable as well.
If Lecce reminds of a team from the previous two weekends, they should get the victory easier than expected.
