Novara and Varese played out a 0-0 draw on Saturday afternoon, with both sides still battling against relegation.
The goalless clash at the Stadio Silvio Piola means that the Biancoazzurri and the Leopardi stay in 19th and 18th respectively, with just one game of the Serie B season to go.
The away side managed to hold out for a point, despite Andrea Cristiano getting himself sent off on 58 minutes.
Novara face Bari and Varese host Siena in their final League matches next Friday.
