With just one round left in the Serie B season, Ascoli have had their seven-point penalty reduced on appeal.
The club had been docked seven points due to financial irregularities, but the TAS judges cut that down to six after today's legal action.
This could have a huge effect on the relegation situation, as it puts Ascoli on 47 points – one more than Albinoleffe and Piacenza.
The three sides are locked in a battle to see which two will go into the relegation play-out.
Triestina, Portogruaro and Frosinone have already been relegated to Lega Pro.
