Serie B: Drama for Empoli and Chievo

Empoli lost their heads at Pordenone, Chievo came back in a seven-goal thriller at Livorno and Benevento left it late with Spezia to go top.

The events at the Dacia Arena were dramatic from the start, as Empoli’s Filippo Bandinelli got himself sent off after just two minutes for a reaction foul.

Leonardo Mancuso had the chance to equalise, but ballooned a penalty over the bar.
