Empoli clinch promotion to Serie A
Empoli have clinched promotion to Serie A.
The Tuscan club have competed in the second tier since suffering relegation in 2008, but a 2-0 victory over Pescara on Friday night saw them finish the Serie B season behind only champions Palermo.
Latina, Cesena, Modena, Crotone, Bari and Spezia will now battle it out for the third and final promotion place through a new six-club play-off system.
Also known as the Azzurri, Empoli are currently managed by Maurizio Sarri and play their home games at the Stadio Carlo Castellani.
