Serie B: Pescara win amid controversy

Pescara fought back to beat Perugia 2-1 in the first leg of the Serie B relegation play-off, but there was a very controversial incident in stoppages.

The decider will be on Friday evening at the Stadio Curi.

Perugia took the lead somewhat against the run of play just before half-time, with Kouan tapping in the Falzerano cross from the right.

The Delfini came out fighting for the second half, Masciangelo sprinting forward to set up Galano’s header, followed by a double save on Maniero and Hugo Campagnaro.

Serie B: Pordenone stun Frosinone

Pordenone earned a huge advantage in the first leg of the Serie B promotion play-off semi-final, winning 1-0 away to Frosinone.

It was a spectacular goal from substitute Luca Tremolada just a few minutes after coming off the bench that made the difference.

He gathered just outside the area with his right boot to control, then smashed a left-foot rocket into the top corner.

Pordenone are in their first ever Serie B campaign, but could be heading for Serie A after this impressive victory against Alessandro Nesta’s Frosinone.

Italiano or Maran for Genoa job

Vincenzo Italiano and Rolando Maran are the two favourites to lead Genoa next season, as Davide Nicola won’t be kept on.

The club is in a constant state of flux and this summer is no different, as after going through three coaches in one season and escaping relegation on the final day, they are still not prepared to extend the deal with Nicola.

Genoa also changed their director of sport, with Daniele Faggiano arriving from Parma.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Italiano is the hot favourite to take the Marassi bench next term.

Serie B Play-Offs: Advantage Chievo

Chievo have the upper hand after winning the first leg of the Serie B promotion play-off semi-final 2-0 against Spezia and parrying another penalty.

It took all of nine minutes for the Flying Donkeys to take the comfortable lead, as Filip Djordjevic opened the scoring from a corner, quickly followed by Jacopo Segre firing in the Joel Obi assist.

Just as in the preliminary round of the play-offs, Chievo goalkeeper Adrian Semper was decisive by saving a penalty, this time from Matteo Ricci after Emmanuel Gyasi was brought down.

Serie B: Trapani appeal rejected

Trapani have officially seen their appeal against a two-point penalty rejected, so the Serie B relegation play-out is between Pescara and Perugia.

The situation had been in some doubt due to the two points docked for financial irregularities.

If they had been handed back, then Trapani would’ve leapfrogged Pescara and sent them straight down to Serie C.

However, with today’s decision, it is confirmed that Trapani are relegated to Serie C with Juve Stabia and Livorno.

Official: Mancosu signs three-year deal with Lecce

Lecce have officially signed a new three-year deal with attacking midfielder Marco Mancosu.

The Sardinian scored 14 goals in Serie A this term but couldn’t prevent the Giallorossi from relegating to Serie B.

Mancosu has renewed for three years and has implemented a release clause in his new contract at the Via del Mare.

Any possible suitors must therefore trigger the €3m release clause in his new three-year deal, but the 31-year-old seems set to help Lecce in their pursuit of a swift return to Serie A.
