Serie B: Livorno-Empoli in Final

Empoli and Livorno are through to the Serie B play-off Final after seeing off Novara and Brescia respectively.

The Final will be over two legs and a Tuscan derby to see which team will join Sassuolo and Hellas Verona in Serie A next season.

The first leg will be on Wednesday May 29 and the decider on Sunday June 2.

Both the first legs of the semi-finals had ended 1-1, while away goals do not count in this system.

Livorno were held 1-1 again by Brescia, but go through because they finished higher up the Serie B table in the regular season.

Empoli thrashed Novara 4-1 with a Riccardo Saponara brace to sweep into the Final.
