Malesani and Di Francesco face sack

It's reported both Genoa boss Alberto Malesani and Lecce's Eusebio Di Francesco risk the sack if they lose today.

The two clubs go head-to-head at Marassi and it is already being treated as a Last Chance Saloon for the tacticians.

Malesani is under fire after two consecutive defeats against Chievo and Parma, which infuriated President Enrico Preziosi.

There are suggestions in today's newspapers that Davide Ballardini could be recalled if Genoa lose again.

Their opponents are in a similar situation, as Lecce have amassed one win and four defeats so far this season.

Time is running out for Coach Di Francesco, who is on his first Serie A management experience.

The Salentini's home record is the biggest problem, having lost all three games at the Stadio Via del Mare.
