Milan fights back from 2 goals down to draw at Lecce

MILAN (AP) — AC Milan’s dismal start to the year continued when it had to fight back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Lecce in Serie A. An early Théo Hernandez own goal and a header from Federico Baschirotto gave Lecce a solid halftime lead. Milan managed to rescue a point with goals from Rafael Leão and captain Davide Calabria. Milan moved back into second spot but is nine points behind Napoli. Juventus and Inter Milan are a point further back after the Nerazzurri beat relegation-threatened 1-0 Hellas Verona. World Cup winner Lautaro Martínez scored for a third straight match for Inter.
