Babacar scores in Lecce friendly

Lecce just about saw off Cosenza 2-1 in a friendly, with Khouma Babacar getting his first goal for the Salentini.

Fabio Liverani’s men started the Serie A season with two defeats against Inter and Hellas Verona, failing to score a single goal.

Deadline day signing Babacar will be hoping to correct that and found the net on his debut in today’s friendly against Serie B outfit Cosenza.

Trovato equalised for Cosenza, but deep into stoppages, Matteo Mancosu snatched victory.

Another new arrival also got to play, as Giannelli Imbula came off the bench for 20 minutes as a substitute.

Lecce: Vigorito (Bleve 71), Riccardi (Monterisi 88), Vera (Tarantino 71), Petriccione (Imbula 64) (Maselli 88), Lucioni, Mancosu, Shakhov (Calderoni 57), Farias (Ortisi 64), Tabanelli, Rispoli (Pierno 57), Babacar (La Mantia 46)
