Lecce-Sassuolo 2-2 (18 ’Lapadula, 35’ Toljan, 42 ’Falco, 85 'Berardi)
Gabriel 5 – He gets mocked under the legs by Toljan at the 1-1 and responds too centrally to Defrel's shot leading to Berardi's 2-2. More uncertain than the last, excellent, releases.
Meccariello 5 – It takes more to contain than to attack on the right, but Boga does however what he wants and manages to systematically skip it, producing repetitive dangers especially in the second half.
Lucioni 5 – The usual test of great personality and experience to guide the rearguard of the house. At least until the 85th minute, when Berardi needs the involuntary assist of the draw.
Rossettini 6.5 – His 50-meter launch for Lapadula's goal is certainly worth half a point more and is the icing on a defensively perfect performance.
Calderoni 6 – He pushes a lot on the left wing, so much so that he almost looks like a midfielder. Then, in the final, he immolated himself on Defrel and Berardi keeping his own afloat. A rescue that unfortunately is of little use.
Majer 6.5 – He grits his teeth after missing the trip to Genoa and immediately confirms himself as a fundamental pawn for Liverani's midfield. He has a warm foot and disputes 70 important minutes to leave space for a defender to protect the result in favor (From 71 ’Riccardi 5.5 – A central defender in place of a midfielder, Liverani's conservative change does not bring the desired effects. The Lecce reshuffled yes with a 5-3-2 ultra-defensive, but he too becomes a victim of Boga dribbling).
Petriccione 6.5 – The "little Modric", as they call it in Lecce, touches even today a large number of balls exalted in the classic role of point guard.
Tabanelli 5.5 – About forty minutes fluctuating, has the flaw of being run away Toljan in the action of the 1-1 (From 40 ’Shakhov 5.5 – Does not affect as against Sampdoria. Uninspired, missed confirmations).
Mancosu 5.5 – It is the most blunt of Lecce's attack. He moves well, but in the end he is rarely seen and so he remembers only a conclusion on goal at the end.
Lapadula 7 – Second consecutive goal and, finally, the awareness that he can still be a decisive player. Battle alone against Sassuolo's entire defense and the 2-1 punishment is also won. Is back?
Babacar s.v. – Accuses a physical problem already in the first minutes and must leave the field after not even a quarter of an hour (From the 14th Falco 7 – Initially on the bench to catch his breath, Liverani throws him into the fray on the 14th and he progressively enters the game. Until the 42nd minute, when his penalty kick brought his Lecce back momentarily and allowed him to sign his first Serie A goal as well.
