Serie B: Torino back on top

Torino are back on top of the table after thrashing Sassuolo in their rescheduled match, while Pescara failed to turn around the Livorno game.

Toro had been behind Pescara in the standings, but completed the leapfrog after hammering fellow promotion chasers Sassuolo 3-0 in a fixture that had been rescheduled.

Meanwhile, Pescara-Livorno played the final hour after it was suspended at the 32nd minute when Piermario Morosini collapsed on April 14.

It resumed, after a minute’s silence for Livorno midfielder Morosini, from where it left off with Livorno leading 2-0.

That also proved to be the final result, despite Pescara’s best efforts and the woodwork.
