Serie B: Palermo avoid relegation

Palermo have partially won an appeal against their demotion to Serie C, as they are ‘only’ docked 20 points for financial irregularities and therefore stay in Serie B.

They had originally been demoted to last place and therefore relegated.

This means that the Rosanero, who had been due to take part in the promotion play-offs before the court case, have enough points under their belt to stay in Serie B next season.

They did have 63 points during the regular 2018-19 season, so go down to 43 points and are mid-table.
