Description: LCE Vs PAR Dream11 Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Incredible late surge sees Lecce keep alive their dreams of playing in Serie A next season
Dismissed by many a couple of weeks back, Lecce have hit back hard to not only silence their naysayers but also thwart all preconceived notions of the club being relegated. While the side still finds itself in the bottom three ahead of today’s culminating contest, the team can wrench out of the relegation zone with a win for itself and anything but a win for 17th placed Genoa.
Although the odds are still firmly stacked against the side with outside factors weighing in on the side’s survival, Lecce will be looking to complete their part of the bargain. With two wins in its last three outings, the club sits within a point of Genoa, a deficit which has rekindled chances of their aspirations of plying their trade in the league next season as well.
However, things will be far from straightforward for the home side with the team coming across a daunting and stiff challenge in the identity of Parma today. The visitors saw their two match winning spin be curbed the last time around with a 2-1 defeat to Atalanta the last time around but it’s a result which will hardly face the outfit with the team showing immense gallantry and pluck to make life tricky for a way superior side.
LCE Vs PAR Dream11 Probable Winner
Despite Parma’s elevated stature as compared to them, we envision Lecce giving a real go today. The club is fighting for survival, a proposition which will spur the team to dole out a resilient, perseverant and resolute showing on the day.
This will be an edge of the seat thriller given the ramifications stemming from the tie with Lecce giving every last bit they have in their tank to salvage a result on the day. However, their defence is a source of plight, one which will see the club falter in its ambitions of survival.

Dream 11 Picks
The worst defence in the league, Lecce’s horrid backline looked set to sink the side’s ship this season. However, in this time of peril and adversity, Gabriel upped the ante to emerge as the side’s saviours with his fortitude and girt helping the side scram its way to 6 points in the last three contests.
With this set to be a goals galore tie given the dwindling nature of both the defences, we decided to limit our Dream 11 team to the bare minimum requisite of three picks in this slot. Also, with relegation on the line for Lecce and nothing but three points assuring them of survival, they’ll thrust everything into attack, a discourse which will accord both the sides with plenty of chances to pile on the goals.
In the midst of this discourse, we found it safe to opt for a triad from Parma from the forthcoming clash. If any side has the slightest of chance of salvaging an unlikely cleansheet on the day, it’s the visiting team, a narrative which sees Riccardo Gagliolo, Matteo Darmian and Bruno Alves line up our framework.
Up against a side which has shipped in a sordid 81 goals this term, it would have been criminal on our parts to look anywhere other than Parma’s Dejan Kulusevski for the upcoming outing. The side’s top goal contributor with 10 goals and 8 assists, he can easily end up schooling a downtrodden a home team defence to add to that tally.
The electric and daunting partnership of Jasmin Kurtic and Antonio Barilla joins up, two players set to descend on the tie and disrupt Lecce’s chances of staying abreast in the league this season. Elsewhere, Lecce will see just the lone player line up our ambit with us venturing in with Jacopo Petriccione courtesy of the five assists he’s managed to accrue for the side.
At a time when Lecce have been rocked by injuries to their top scorers, the onus will lie squarely on Filippo Falco to rescue his side today. With four goals and five assists for himself, he’s more than adept at filling in the void left by injures to his side to see him become the first pick from the side here.
Khouma Babacar links up with him for the outing while the opposition will see 7 goal and 4 assist man, Gervinho wrap up proceedings for this season’s culminating square off.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His hand in a behemoth 18 goals sees Dejan slot his way into our side as the captain while Gervinho is the vice-captain.
