Lecce kept their survival hopes alive going into the final weekend, as they fought back to beat Udinese 2-1 at the Dacia Arena.
Samir was allowed a free header from a corner to put the Friulani in front, but Marco Mancosu put his jitters behind him by converting the penalty, awarded for a handling offence.
It was a tense moment, as Mancosu had missed his last two spot-kicks in Serie A.
With Genoa losing badly at Sassuolo, Lecce needed a victory to close the gap to one point, and achieved it with hitman Gianluca Lapadula.
