ROME (Reuters) – A stunning stoppage-time equaliser from Lecce’s Marco Calderoni denied Stefano Pioli a win on his debut as AC Milan coach when his side were held to a 2-2 home draw in Serie A on Sunday.

Hakan Calhanoglu smashed in the opening goal during an impressive first half from the hosts but Lecce drew level after the break through Khouma Babacar.

Substitute Krzysztof Piatek restored Milan’s lead with nine minutes remaining but Calderoni’s long-range piledriver in the 92nd minute levelled the scores.

Former Inter Milan coach Pioli made his debut in the Milan dugout after succeeding sacked boss Marco Giampaolo earlier this month.

The draw leaves his side in 12th place on 10 points, three ahead of 15th-placed Lecce.
