Roma will host Lecce at the Stadio Olimpico in Serie A matchday nine.
Paulo Dybala and Chris Smalling’s goals helped Roma beat Inter Milan 2-1 in a comeback victory, but they could not continue their winning streak in the UEFA Europa League, losing 2-1 to Real Betis at home in midweek. Roma are currently 6th in the table with 16 points.
Meanwhile, Lecce has performed admirably since their promotion to the top division, and they are the best-placed promoted team in the league. They are 13th with one win and four draws.

Tammy Abraham, the leading scorer for Roma from last season, was benched for last week’s victory over Inter. He then made a midweek appearance but did not perform well. As a result, Andrea Belotti may compete with Paulo Dybala for a spot up front.
Long-term absences include the Dutch duo of Georginio Wijnaldum and Rick Karsdorp, as well as wingback Zeki Celik, who suffered a significant injury on Thursday and will be sidelined until next season. Leonardo Spinazzola is expected to return, with Nicola Zalewski moving to the right flank.
Lecce only has Kristijan Bistrovic out, leaving Marco Baroni with a nearly full roster to pick from. Gabriel Strefezza has scored in his last two appearances and should be part of the visitors’ front three, which will be led by Assan Ceesay or Milan loanee Lorenzo Colombo.

Lecce only managed one victory away from home this season, whereas Roma only lost once at home. Also, Lecce has gone four away games without scoring. As a result, Roma should be the favourite to win the game.
