Serie B: Livorno and Novara upsets

Livorno and Varese stalled, Bari burst Novara’s bubble, Pro Vercelli went down and Vicenza fans stopped play in a 5-1 home defeat to Empoli.

The game at the Stadio Menti was suspended for 29 minutes after home fans staged a pitch invasion, sitting on the side of the field and refusing to leave.

They were protesting the disastrous result that saw Empoli go 5-1 up before half-time, but negotiations with the players eventually saw them return to the stands. Vicenza drop are in the bottom three and risk relegation.
