The first leg of the Serie B relegation play-out ended goalless between Virtus Entella and Ascoli, but with both Coaches sent off for a touchline row.
Because Ascoli finished higher up the Serie B table during the close season, they can now secure their place with either a draw or a victory in the second leg.
Entella had the best chance to win it in the final minutes, but Aliji hit the outside of the post.
It was an ill-tempered finale with both Coaches Serse Cosmi and Gennaro Volpe sent off for a touchline row in stoppages.
