Upstart Lecce moved provisionally up to second in Serie A with a 1-0 win over 10-man Genoa on Friday.

Remi Oudin scored from outside the area with a deflected shot late in the second half.

Genoa was reduced to 10 men when Aaron Martin picked up his second yellow card in the 36th minute.

Lecce moved within a point of league-leader Inter Milan, which visits last-place Empoli on Sunday.

Genoa, which finished second in Serie B last season, is 14th.
