Hellas Verona are relegated

Hellas Verona have mathematically been relegated to Serie B along with Benevento following their 4-1 defeat to Milan.

They were practically doomed by last week’s home loss to SPAL and would only postpone their fate with a victory at San Siro.

Verona were promoted after securing second place in Serie B last season behind SPAL, while Benevento came up via the play-offs.

They managed only seven wins, four draws and 24 defeats this term, scoring 29 goals and conceding 75.

Unlike the other sides battling against the drop, they resisted sacking Coach Fabio Pecchia.

They see out the campaign with a seventh consecutive away defeat and their last game of the season is at leaders Juventus.
