Hakan Calhanoglu put on a show for Milan in their opening game under new manager Stefano Pioli. The midfielder scored a spectacular volley before assisting Piatek and demonstrated his worth in a big way for the club going forward. He's effort was not enough for Milan to seal the deal as they fell to a late equaliser in additional time to leave a bitter taste in the mouth of Milan fans despite an improved performance.

The game was rather nostalgic as there were numerous parallels between today's 2-2 draw and the opening game for Gennaro Gattuso two seasons ago. Gattuso drew 2-2 with newly promoted Benevnto similar to Lecce and conceded the equaliser in the last minute. There was a big jolt of confidence in the team and some swagger to their play however a need to be more focused to ensure points are not lost again.
