Serie B: Week 16 Results

Grosseto cause a shock in Padova and Pescara climb into second place, as Torino are held, Empoli crumble and Sampdoria scrape a point.

Week 16 continued this afternoon with a series of games and some surprise results, above all in Padova where Grosseto snatched a 1-0 victory.

Sassuolo were held on home turf by fellow promotion hopefuls Brescia, allowing Zdenek Zeman’s Pescara to climb into second place.

Torino are now three points clear at the top of the table, having played out a goalless stalemate away to Crotone.

Sampdoria’s new Coach Beppe Iachini needs more time to change their fortunes, but at least managed to pick up a point in Bari.

There were surprise home defeats for Empoli and Varese.
