Advantage Padova in play-offs

Padova have the advantage against Varese in the semi-finals of the Serie B play-offs, while Reggina-Novara ended goalless.

A penalty from Italiano in the 52nd minute proved to be the difference for Padova as they look for a return to Serie A.

In the other tie at the Stadio Granillo, there were no goals between Reggina and Novara. The second legs will be played on Sunday.
