Serie B Play-Offs: Benevento collapse

Cittadella earned a shock 3-0 away victory to knock Benevento out of the Serie B promotion play-off semi-finals, 4-2 on aggregate.

The first leg had put the ball firmly in Benevento’s court, as they picked up a 2-1 away victory.

However, that was thrown away by half-time at the Stadio Vigorito, as Davide Diaw struck on a rapid counter-attack, then Giuseppe Panico’s right-foot strike took a deflection off Nicolas Viola to beat Montipe at the near post.

Serie B: Verona win in extra time

Hellas Verona needed extra time to beat 10-man Perugia and set up a Serie B promotion play-off semi-final against Pescara.

Verona broke through just before the break with Samuel Di Carmine’s turn and strike, but despite seeing Christian Kouan sent off for a second bookable offence, Perugia still equalised with a last-gasp Luca Vido penalty.

Giampaolo Pazzini’s last-gasp effort was deflected on to the crossbar, so they had to go to extra time.

Serie B: Verona appoint Aglietti

Serie B side Verona have officially appointed Alfredo Aglietti as their Coach until the end of the season.

Aglietti replaces former Juventus and Italy defender Fabio Grosso, who was sacked after a run of eight matches without a win.

The 48-year-old played for the Gialloblu between 1997 and 2000, scoring 22 goals in 83 appearances.

He has been tasked with qualifying Verona for the playoffs, and they sit sixth in the table with a two-point advantage, going into their final two games.

Serie B: Aglietti set for Verona job

Hellas Verona are expected to appoint Alfredo Aglietti to replace sacked Fabio Grosso, despite reports of Zdenek Zeman talks.

Grosso was fired this afternoon following a 3-2 home defeat to Livorno, which left their promotion play-off status in doubt.

It was initially suggested by Sportitalia that Zeman was the favourite to take over.

However, this evening multiple sources including Sky Sport Italia, Sportitalia and Sport Mediaset all point towards a deal with Aglietti.

Serie B: Verona sack Grosso

Hellas Verona have fired Coach Fabio Grosso after a shock 3-2 home defeat to relegation-threatened Livorno.

The Stadio Bentegodi side were one of the favourites to come back up to Serie A this season, but struggled throughout and have been particularly poor over the last couple of months.

“You know how I feel about the Coach, but today was unfortunately a very disappointing performance that made me extremely anxious,” Verona President Maurizio Setti told TeleArena.

Serie B: Lecce waste promotion chance

Lecce wasted the opportunity to secure direct promotion into Serie A by losing to almost-relegated Padova, while Benevento, Verona and Palermo also stumbled.

It would’ve been a promotion party today if Lecce had beaten Padova, seeing as Palermo drew 2-2 with Spezia in the early kick-off.

Brescia still have the chance to book their ticket to Serie A today if they defeat Ascoli.
