Juan Cuadrado was then sent-off for Lecce on the hour and that looked to be it for the side who are third-from-bottom.
But with five-minutes left, Lecce grabbed the unlikeliest of points as substitute Andrea Bertolacci scored.
AC Milan took full advantage of the slip-up as they beat Atalanta 2-0 at the San Siro.
A goal in each half from Sulley Muntari and Robinho did the damage for Massimiliano Allegri's men.
Udinese are now favourites for the final Champions League place as they went two points clear in fourth after 1-0 win at bottom-of-the-table Cesena.
The winner came just four minutes in with Diego Fabbrini scoring.
Inter Milan saw their hopes of a top-four finish take a massive blow as they lost 3-1 at Parma.
Things started well for Inter at the Ennio Tardini as Wesley Sneijder scoring after 13-minutes.
But Parma took control in the second-half and were ahead within ten-minutes of the re-start thanks to goals from Fernando Marques and Sebastian Giovinco.
The win was sealed by former Inter man Jonathan Biabiany with seven-minutes left.
Inter are now down to sixth as Lazio also moved above them, but they could only draw 1-1 at home with Siena.
Striking starlet Mattia Destro put the visitors ahead on the half-hour, but a penalty from Cristian Ledesma gave Lazio a share of the spoils.
Genoa are three points clear of the drop-zone after a crucial 2-1 win over Cagliari.
Rodrigo Palacio saw his early goal cancelled out with 60 seconds by Lorenz Ariaudo. But the home side claimed all three points as Bojan Jankovic scored with 14-minutes left.
Gaston Ramirez's goal ten-minutes from time saw Bologna claim a 1-0 win at Catania, a win which lifts them into tenth.
Finally, Fiorentina came from two-goals behind to claim a 2-2 draw at home to second from bottom Novara.
Goals from Jeda and Marco Rignoni had put Novara ahead after 30-minutes but two goals from Riccardo Montolivo saw the Florence outfit claim a point.
However, the talking point from this game will be the scenes which saw coach Delio Rossi fighting with Adem Ljajic after he was substituted on the half-hour.
