A decisive clash took place this Wednesday, as Lecce welcomed Brescia for matchday 35 of the Serie A TIM. At the Via del Mare Stadium, both teams were fighting for the three points to keep their hopes of staying up, and the ones who left with it were the hosts after a good 3-1 win. Two goals of Gianluca Lapadula and one of Riccardo Saponara guarantee the home team’s victory. Daniele Dessena diminished for the visitors.

The result means that Lecce will still keep on fighting for Serie A survival, as Brescia will play Italy’s second division next season.

Playing at home and needing a positive result, Lecce started the first half already putting pressure on their opponents. They were playing in their attacking field during most part of the early minutes, so it was not a surprise when they broke the deadlock at the 22nd minute. Filippo Falco whipped a free-kick into Lapadula’s head and the number 9 put the ball into the back of the net.

Brescia tried to seek for an equalizer right after suffering the goal but were not efficient in the attack. Meanwhile, the hosts kept control of the match and, ten minutes later, doubled their lead. After a fast play, Lapadula took advantage of the goalkeeper’s rebound to score again and give his team a 2-0 advantage before the half-time.

In the second half, the visitors tried to increase their pace, starting to bring danger to their opponents’ defensive system. Then, at the 63rd minute, they managed to pull a goal back. After a confusion inside the box, the ball was left to Dessena, who slotted a low drive into the bottom-right corner.

However, 7 minutes later, the hosts were able to score again, killing off the game. Panagiotis Tachtsidis stole the ball in the defensive field and gave a wicked delivery to Saponara, who slammed home.

With the 3-1 victory, Lecce reached 32 points, remaining in the 18th position. They keep fighting against relegation, which is now just 4 points behind Genoa. Meanwhile, Brescia are in a very difficult situation, as they remain in 19th place with just 24 points.
