Serie B: Ascoli gain play-out advantage

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.

Official: Serie B play-offs moved

The Lega Serie B has officially confirmed that this weekend’s promotion play-offs have been moved back by a week.

Bari were due to play Cittadella in a one-off match on Saturday, with Perugia travelling to Venezia the following day.

However, the FIGC could deduct Bari two points tomorrow for irregular payment of their players.

That would mean they finished below Cittadella in the table, meaning that Citta should have home advantage for the play-off.

Empoli on the up

The Tuscan club ran away with the Serie B title and have the potential to keep progressing in Italy’s top flight, writes Nick Valerio.

As Juventus eased to a sixth consecutive Scudetto, the real story of the 2016-17 campaign was the great escape achieved by lowly Crotone. Davide Nicola’s history makers battled against the odds all season before a run of six wins from the final nine matches ensured the Calabrese kept their top flight status.
