The second half saw more opportunities squandered, with Lecce missing a golden chance on the counter-attack as Dorgu failed to convert from close range.

Roma also had their share of missed opportunities, notably when Houssem Aouar couldn’t capitalize on a clear chance.

As the game neared its ending, both teams pushed for a breakthrough again.

Lecce’s Lameck Banda forced a save from Svilar, while Roma’s Nicola Sansone missed the target from a promising position.

In stoppage time, Remy Oudin’s effort for Lecce came agonizingly close to breaking the deadlock, but the match ended in a frustrating draw.
