Serie B Play-offs and play-out confirmed

Grosseto 2-1 FrosinoneThe line-up for the end-of-season Serie B promotion play-offs and relegation play-outs have been completed following today's dramatic final day action.

Grosseto secured the last play-off spot with a 2-1 win over Frosinone and they will now take on Livorno in the play-off semi-finals, while Empoli face Brescia in the other two-legged tie on June 7 and 11.

The winner of the play-off final on June 14 and 20 will join champions Bari and runners-up Parma in Serie A next season.

At the other end of the table Ancona and Rimini will fight it out for Serie B survival when they go head-to-head in the two-legged play-out final on June 6 and 13.

The losing team on the aggregate score will join the already-relegated Treviso, Avellino and Pisa in Lega Pro 1 next season. The latter were relegated automatically on the final day in dramatic fashion after Ancona staged a stunning late 4-3 comeback win at Albinoleffe, while Pisa were defeated by Brescia in the 94th minute.

All kick off times stated are UK time, +1hr for Italy/CET.
