Insight, form and news ahead of Sunday's encounter between Hellas Verona and Lecce.
#1. Head to head. In a finely balanced game, it was only a late goal by Matteo Pessina that separated the two sides when they faced each other at the Stadio del Mare back in September. Since then, Verona have been one of the revelations of the season, while Lecce are in a desperate battle to stay up.
#2. The form book. Despite some impressive results, including draws with Inter, Milan and Juventus, Lecce hover just above the relegation zone on 16 points. Although they've scored one more goal than Verona this season (23), Lecce have conceded 39 goals (compared to just 22 conceded by Verona).
#3. Closed doors. As if the journey from Lecce wasn't arduous enough (a 2,000 mile/20 hour round trip), fans from the province of Lecce have been barred, on the orders of the prefecture, from purchasing tickets for Sunday's match. While little in the way of explanation has been offered, whatever happens, it seems likely that away section will be sparsely populated on Sunday.
#4. In and Outs. While Rrahmani is now officially a Napoli player (he will remain in Verona on loan until the end of the season), no such deal has yet been reached for Amarabat who, for the time being at least, remains a Verona player. The other big transfer news is that Liam Henderson has agreed a loan move to Empoli and he could make his first appearance for the Tuscan side as early as Friday evening against Chievo. Forza Liam!
#5. Fab Borini. With a goal and a strong performance, Borini impressed after being introduced against Bologna last Sunday. With Zaccagni serving a one match suspension, Fab will surely start against Lecce.
