Lecce snatched all three points from Vicenza in a 2-1 victory on Saturday, at Stadio Romeo Menti. With each team arriving on the back of a league defeat, they were both keen to pick up points. VIC were looking forward to meeting again after losing their last game 3-0 to Reggina. Lecce lost 2-1 in the last match they played against SPAL. As things stand, VIC are in 8th place, with 41 points from 34 matches, while Lecce sit in 11th, with 61 points from 34.

After an un-eventful first half, Giallorossi certainly were out of the blocks quickly in the second half, thanks to an early goal from Pettinari in the 50th minute. However, the good fortune didn’t last for long. An equalizer from Lamin Jallow at the 62 minute mark brought VIC level. In the end though, Lecce, 67 minutes in took the victory via a Henderson goal so at full time it was 2-1 to Lecce.

For VIC, Vandeputte, Jacopo Da Riva, Tommaso Mancini, Pontisso and Longo, came on for Cinelli, Zonta, Giacomelli, Rigoni and Gori. Lecce brought on Pablo Rodríguez and Dermaku, to replace Pettinari and Henderson.

There were bookings for Rigoni, Pasini and Padella from VIC. For Lecce, Maggio saw yellow.

VIC will next play Virtus Entella away, with Lecce facing Cittadella at home.
