Arezzo 2-0 Albinoleffe

Arezzo went close early on through Abbruscato and Di Donato, dominating the play, but had to wait until the 53rd minute before breaking through with a fine left-footed Antonio Floro Flores finish. The result was only made secure in the final stages thanks to Abbruscato’s long-range effort, taking Arezzo up to 24 points.

Scorers: Floro Flores 53 (Ar), Abbruscato 86 (Ar)

Atalanta 3-0 Rimini

Atalanta swept newly promoted Rimini aside at the Stadio Azzurri d’Italia, but their first half possession failed to create many clear-cut scoring opportunities. The deadlock was eventually broken on 67 minutes, when Loria rose to nod in a free kick. Soon after, Luca Saudati made the points safe for the Orobici by getting the final touch to a counter-attack and Davide Bombardini’s rocket from distance was an extra bonus for the home fans.

Scorers: Loria 67 (A), Saudati 75 (A), Bombardini 83 (A)

Bari 1-0 Cremonese

Bari got the points in this relegation battle and took the lead early on when Santoruvo ran on to a through ball and rounded the goalkeeper for his fifth goal of the campaign.

Scorers: Santoruvo 16 (B)

Catania 1-1 Torino

Two of the biggest promotion contenders faced off at the Stadio Massimino, but the share of the points does little for either side. It took just six minutes for the home side to break through, as Giuseppe Mascara was brought down and converted the resulting penalty. Toro fought back and drew level midway through the first half with a Roberto Muzzi angled drive from the edge of the box. Both sides battled away throughout the match, but couldn’t quite find a goal to make their efforts count with Baiocco, Anastasi and De Sousa going close.

Scorers: Mascara pen 6 (C), Muzzi 24 (T)

Catanzaro 0-1 Ternana

There was a real air of desperation at the Stadio Ceravolo, where the two bottom teams in the Division faced off. It was Coach Guerini’s debut on the Catanzaro bench and he didn’t get off to a great start, as Ternana took the lead on the hour mark when Di Deo tapped in a Jimenez corner kick from close range. It sealed Ternana’s first away win of the season.

Scorers: Di Deo 66 (T)

Cesena 2-0 Bologna

The Stadio Manuzzi was packed out for the Emilia Romagna derby and Bologna boss Renzo Ulivieri is under increasing pressure. Cesena struck twice in four first half minutes to put their stamp on this success. First Ciaramitaro’s header beat Gianluca Pagliuca, then Salvetti took advantage of a defensive error to rifle in a right-foot drive. Bernacci nearly made it 3-0 before the break, while substitute Cipriani went close to getting Bologna back into it.

Scorers: Ciaramitaro 21 (C), Salvetti 26 (C)

Mantova 1-0 Brescia

Mantova have stretched out their lead at the top of Serie B even further after the 1-1 draw between Catania and Torino, but faced a tough test against fellow promotion hopefuls Brescia. The visitors had a bright start and went close with two good chances, while Noselli’s header was well saved. However, Mantova broke through after the restart when Graziani nodded in from eight yards. Although the Rondinelle went close to drawing level in an entertaining second half, in which both Tarana and Stankevicius saw red, this remained the only goal.

Scorers: Graziani 52 (M)

Sent off: Tarana 89 (M), Stankevicius 92 (B)

Modena-Vicenza

To be played on Monday.

Pescara 5-1 Triestina

Matteini was the hero with an incredible four goals as Pescara ran riot over mid-table Triestina to drag themselves to within one point of their opponents. A Godeas shot was only parried into the path of Esposito to give the visitors the lead, but Jadid’s deflected volley equalised on the stroke of half-time. The spotlight was all for Matteini, who bagged a hat-trick in the space of 11 minutes. First he sprung the offside trap, then converted a counter-attack and blasted in a piledriver from the edge of the box. He still wasn’t finished and snatched a fourth for himself in the final stages with a determined solo effort.

Scorers: Esposito 26 (T), Jadid 42 (P), Matteini 61, 66, 72, 88 (P)

Piacenza 2-0 Avellino

Piacenza welcomed struggling Avellino to the Stadio Garilli and struggled to find a way through the solid defence. The deadlock was eventually broken on the hour mark, as Cacia redirected a free kick from close range, and he made the points safe late on with an angled drive.

Scorers: Cacia 60, 85 (P)

Verona 1-1 Crotone

A lot was at stake in this battle on the fringes of the promotion places. Crotone took a surprise lead at the very foggy Stadio Bentegodi when Sedivec was brought down and Guzman converted the resulting penalty. It didn’t last long, as on the stroke of half-time Adailton’s wonderful free kick curled into the top corner of the net. Borghetti saw red for the visitors, but Verona failed to find a way through for the victory.

Scorers: Guzman pen 37 (C), Adailton 45 (V)

Sent off: Borghetti 85 (C)

Week 15 - Reports

Albinoleffe 0-3 Cesena

Cesena got back on track with this comfortable away victory at the Stadio Azzurri d’Italia. It took a Salvetti spot-kick to break the deadlock in the second half, awarded for a foul on Bernacci. He had created that goal and scored the second to end Albinoleffe’s hopes, rising to nod in a cross from the left. Ciaramitaro completed the rout with a marvellous solo effort, running from his own half to curl into the top corner.

Scorers: Salvetti pen 54 (C), Bernacci 68 (C), Ciaramitaro 91 (C)

Avellino 1-3 Pescara

Davide Matteini scored four goals last week and continues to inspire Pescara to a remarkable climb up the standings. Bonfiglio opened the scoring with a fierce drive from 25 metres, followed by a splendid Matteini volley and Jadid header. Masiello nodded in to give Avellino a consolation goal, but the points went to the away side.

Scorers: Bonfiglio 41 (P), Matteini 63 (P), Jadid 64 (P), Masiello 69 (A)

Bologna-Mantova

To be played on Monday.

Brescia 1-1 Piacenza

Brescia have stuttered over the past few weeks and both these teams are on the outskirts of the promotion zone, so a point does little to please either side. Piacenza took a surprise lead after 20 minutes at the Stadio Rigamonti with Degano rising to turn in a cross from the right. However, the Rondinelle made a late push and equalised with a trademark Omar Milanetto free kick.

Scorers: Degano 20 (P), Milanetto 89 (B)

Catanzaro 0-0 Bari

Vantaggiato and Corona had the best chances of the first half in this relegation battle at the Stadio Ceravolo, but in the end the lone point will be of more use to Bari than lowly Catanzaro.

Cremonese 0-1 Atalanta

Atalanta left it very late indeed to grab all three points in the local derby with only their second away win of the season. Both sides struck the frame of the goal, as Ariatti thumped the upright from close range just before the break, then Cremonese’s Tabbiani rattled the crossbar. The Orobici had the better of the overall play and finally struck six minutes from time with a precise Migliaccio header.

Scorers: Migliaccio 84 (A)

Rimini 1-2 Catania

Catania got right back into the promotion race with this important away victory at new boys Rimini. However, it was the home side that took the lead after just 120 seconds when Ricchiuti took full advantage of goalkeeper Pantanelli’s woeful clearance. Dei did what he could to hold out Caserta and De Zerbi, but was beaten after the break by Mascara’s snapshot. Spinesi completed the comeback on the counter-attack with a header on Anastasi’s cross.

Scorers: Ricchiuti 2 (R), Mascara 55 (C), Spinesi 69 (C)

Torino 2-1 Modena

Torino confirm their status in second place after beating their direct rivals for that position. Gianni De Biasi fielded an all-attack line-up for an entertaining game, as Muzzi’s header was somehow kept out by Frezzolini and Colacone thumped the woodwork for Modena. A splendid rising Roberto Stellone strike into the top corner gave Toro the lead and Fantini should’ve doubled it, missing an open goal. The Canarini fought back and a great Taibi save denied Bucchi, but Fantini made up for his earlier error by controlling Longo’s pass and placing a low drive past Frezzolini. Graffiedi was brought down for a Bucchi penalty, but despite a tense finale, the Granata held on for the victory.

Scorers: Stellone 36 (T), Fantini 67 (T), Bucchi pen 81 (M)

Ternana 1-1 Crotone

Ternana remain in the thick of the relegation battle, although this point does lift them out of the bottom four. Fattori had given the home side the lead by running on to Peluso’s inspired backheel, but Jeda converted a penalty to draw Crotone level. It was a tense affair, as both Peluso and Maietta saw red to leave the two teams in 10 men.

Scorers: Fattori 45 (T), Jeda pen 63 (C)

Sent off: Peluso 61 (T), Maietta 69 (C)

Triestina 1-0 Arezzo

Triestina notched up what could be a decisive victory come the end of the season and are now just two points adrift of Arezzo. A set-piece was needed to split the two teams, and it was a wonderful left-foot effort from Di Venanzio that did it. Godeas went close to doubling their lead, but that goal remained enough to ensure the three points.

Scorers: Di Venanzio 27 (T)

Vicenza 0-1 Verona

Verona conquered the Stadio Romeo Menti for this Veneto derby and climbed up to sixth place. The only goal of the game arrived after 28 minutes, as Italiano’s free kick was spilled by Sterchele into the path of Turati for a simple tap-in. Vicenza were disappointing on the day and couldn’t find a way back into the match.

Scorers: Turati 28 (V)
