Lecce vs AC Milan Full Match Reports

It was a thrilling encounter between Lecce and Milan as they once again shared four goals at the Stadio Via del Mare, reminiscent of their clash in January. However, this time it was the fans of Lecce who went home with smiles on their faces, thanks to a goal and assist from the impressive Nicola Sansone, securing a vital point in Serie A.

The January encounter between Lecce and Milan brought heartache for the home team as they let a 2-0 lead slip away. However, this time around, the Lecce faithful would have gladly taken a 2-2 draw at halftime. Milan took the lead through Olivier Giroud, who managed to force the ball into the net via his body, adding to his impressive goalscoring form. The Rossoneri extended their advantage just seven minutes later when Tijjani Reijnders netted a superb goal on a solo run.

Lecce showed resilience and pulled a goal back through Sansone after a fortunate rebound from a corner. The home side quickly capitalized on their momentum and leveled the score mere minutes later when Sansone turned provider, setting up Lameck Banda for a sublime curling finish. Lecce even came agonizingly close to taking the lead late in the game with Sansone hitting the woodwork from a direct free-kick and then narrowly missing the target with a header.

Although Lecce finished strongly, neither team could find the winning goal in a match that deserved a decisive outcome. However, there was late drama as Roberto Piccoli seemingly scored a late winner for Lecce, only for it to be disallowed after a VAR review deemed an attacking foul. Despite Lecce ending their two-month goal drought, they were left frustrated. Milan, on the other hand, will have to settle for a four-point lead over fifth-placed Atalanta, but losing Giroud to a second yellow card added to their disappointment.

Nicola Sansone stood out as the Man of the Match for his stellar performance, contributing a goal and an assist in a thrilling encounter.
