Salernitana post much-needed Serie A win

Salernitana won at Lecce 2-1 on Friday to overtake their opponents and gain ground in the battle to avoid being drawn into a relegation fight in Serie A.

Boulaye Dia gave Salernitana the perfect start by putting the visitors ahead in the fifth minute and Tonny Vilhena doubled the advantage in the 20th.

Gabriel Strefezza pulled one back for Lecce three minutes later but Salernitana held on for their first win since late October.

The win lifted Salernitana to 19th place, nine points above the relegation zone and one point above Lecce.

They also overtook Spezia, which fell to 16th after losing 2-0 at Bologna.

Bologna feared they would be dragged into a relegation brawl but slipped to ninth place, just two points off the final spot in European competition.

Stefan Posch fired Bologna ahead in the first half and Riccardo Orsolini doubled his side’s lead in the 77th minute, shortly after seeing a goal ruled out for offside.
