Serie B action round up – Week 27 – Brescia show that they have what it takes while Lecce fail to take advantage.

Brescia march on this week with an eye on the title, their victory over Sassuolo testament to their improvement. Lecce missed the chance to increase their lead at the top while Salernitana are fighting back but it could be too little too late.

Ancona 3-1 Gallipoli:Ancona managed to get their promotion bid back in full swing when a Pasquale Schiattarella half-volley put the home side ahead. Salvatore Mastronunzio only just forced the ball in for two before Juan Ignacio Surraco Lame smashed home from close range to make it three. The now-eight man Ancona scored a consolation late on through Mario Artistico.

Grosseto 0-4 Crotone: Crotone were in total control as Antonino Bonvissuto scored a placed shot from 20 yards followed by a deft chip over Alessandro Caparco for his brace. Another delicate chip from Denilson Marítimo Gabionetta made the game safe at three nil but Crotone were not finished as Ciro Ginestra headed in from close range.

Lecce 1-1 Triestina: League leaders Lecce faltered here and missed a golden opportunity to break away from the chasing pack. Cristian Pasquato’’s superb dummy followed by a crashing low drive gave the away side the lead. However, substitute Alain Pierre Baclet was on hand to head in the equaliser on 81 minutes.

Salernitana 1-0 Piacenza: The home side built upon last week’s shock win to take another three points, this time from Piacenza. Piacenza saw Davide Moscardelli have his penalty saved by Ciro Polito before Salernitana had a penalty of their own. Roberto Merino stepped up and crashed the ball into the top left hand corner.

Albinoleffe 1-0 Mantova: The home side won this contest with a solitary goal from Andrea Cristiano on 57 minutes when he jumped on a loose ball to power home from six yards. The result sees Albinoleffe push themselves away from the relegation zone, however it pushes Mantova further into it.

Cesena 1-0 Ascoli: The home side kept pace with the top three, moving into fourth place with a 1-0 home win. A flick with the back-heel from close range from Giuseppe Greco was enough to settle this match. Ascoli have to start to turn things around quickly as they fall to fifteenth.


Empoli 3-0 Modena:A red card a-piece helped this game have a unique tension and a penalty scored by Citadin Eder early on set the tone. Empoli’’s second came from a Claudio Coralli tap in before the break. The second half saw Luca Saudati realise his potential in poaching goals but when all was said and done the game will be remembered for the poor standard of refereeing.

Padova 0-1 Torino: Padova were awarded a penalty on 24 minutes yet squandered the chance when Antonio Di Nardo had his penalty saved by Davide Morello. The away side took the lead when Rolando Bianchi slotted home calmly on 58 minutes.

Reggina 1-0 Frosinone: Reggina continued to try and drag themselves out of the relegation zone with a first minute deflected shot from Franco Brienza. This was not the end of the chances but a combination of good goalkeeping and the woodwork allowed Reggina to take all three points despite Roberto Stellone and Gennaro Scarlato being sent off for the away side.

Sassuolo 0-2 Brescia: Brescia continued their impressive form with a fantastic win away at second placed Sassuolo. The first came from Adam Vass’’s low strike from 12 yards that went in off the post. The points were wrapped up when Davide Possanzini beat all comers in thought and deed to tower above the defence and head in the winner.

Vicenza 0-2 Cittadella: Emanuele Pesoli calmly slotted home a penalty on the 60th minute after Marco Fortin brought down Matteo Ardemagni – Fortin’’s disbelief as dramatic as this derby. The winner came in the final minute – a superb solo effort from Antimo Iunco was finished off with a superlative edge of the box chip.
