As a result of two goals scored in stoppage time, Fiorentina was unable to advance to the Champions League spots in Serie A on Friday. During the extra period of time, Roberto Piccoli and Patrick Dorgu scored within a few moments of each other to end Lecce’s losing record of six matches.
This occurred just as Fiorentina appeared to be on the verge of claiming all three points. As soon as the 67th minute rolled around, Fiorentina took the lead. Rolando Mandragora scored a magnificent goal four minutes after the break, and Lecce goalkeeper Wladimiro Falcone made it possible for Lucas Beltran to score his fifth goal of the season in the league.
When Falcone was attempting to play out from the back while under pressure, he was caught short and passed the ball directly to Beltran, who couldn’t believe his luck as he guided the ball home from close range. Beltran exclaimed with a wide smile as he appeared to be ecstatic about his accomplishment.
On the other hand, Piccoli scored with a header in the 90th minute, and shortly after Dorgu’s first-time goal, the home crowd went into a frenzy of delight.
Fiorentina, coached by Vincenzo Italiano, are currently in seventh place, two points behind fourth-placed Atalanta, who this coming Sunday evening will play home to their rivals Lazio.
After moving up one spot, Lecce are now in thirteenth place, six points above the relegation zone.
