Benevento and Crotone had already secured automatic promotion to Serie A for next season.

Pordenone and Spezia enter the promotion play-offs from the semi-final stage.

Pordenone will face the winners of Cittadella-Frosinone, while Chievo or Empoli will take on Spezia.

The relegation play-out will be between Perugia and Pescara, two clubs who had started the season frankly aiming for promotion more than mere survival in Serie B.

That's because Cosenza managed a decisive final day victory over Juve Stabia to break away from the danger zone.

Trapani, Juve Stabia and Livorno are relegated into Serie C.

However, Trapani are pending an appeal, because they were docked points due to financial irregularities.
