Fiorentina pushed Lecce further into relegation danger with a morale-boosting victory, as Federico Chiesa, Patrick Cutrone and Rachid Ghezzal scored fine goals.
The Viola have been really struggling lately and weren’t entirely out of the woods, so needed the three points to break away definitively from the drop zone.
Chiesa broke through almost immediately, then set up Cutrone for the second with his pass over the top.
Ghezzal curled in a wonderful free kick and Yevhen Shahkov gave Lecce a consolation goal late on.
It could easily have been more, but Gabriel made up for his error by saving the resulting Erick Pulgar penalty.
