Lecce trashed Udinese with a 2-1 victory and stayed in the game for survival, as Genoa was defeated 5-0 away to Sassuolo.
Udinese took the lead in the 36th minute with a goal by Samir. With a shot from the penalty spot he equalized with Mancos four minutes later, and Lapadula netted a goal worth three points in the 81st minute.
The only doubt before the last round is whether to move to Serie B Lecce or Genoa, which enters the last game with a point advantage.
While Lecce is at home to Parma, Genoa, Italy’s oldest professional club, host Verona in their final game on Sunday. Brescia and SPAL have already been relegated.
