Next Match: away to Chievo, May 13
Lecce's chances of avoiding relegation are slim heading into Sunday's match at Chievo. Last weekend's 1-0 defeat to Fiorentina left Lecce in 18th place, three points behind Genoa, who hold the last position of safety. The Salentini must beat Chievo and hope that Genoa lose against Palermo if they are to avoid the drop. "We gave our all against Fiorentina but it was not to be," Lecce coach Serse Cosmi said. "We will probably get relegated on Sunday. But we will finish with our heads held high as we forced many teams to fight until the very end for safety." Lecce will be bolstered by the return of suspended trio Moris Carrozieri, Juan Cuadrado and Luis Muriel for Sunday's must-win game against Chievo.
