Pisa is the first playoff finalist to promote the Serie B football championship. The team coached by Luca D’Angelo beat Benevento 1-0 in the return semi-final played on the ground of the Arena Garibaldi in Pisa. A goal by Ahmad Benali, scored in the first half at 11 ‘, decided the match-qualification.
In the first leg the Samnites had won with the same score (1-0), but Pisa passed thanks to the best placement in the standings at the end of the regular season (3 / o place, against 7 / o of Fabio Caserta’s team).
Pisa will now meet the winner of Monza-Brescia, scheduled for tomorrow evening at 21 on the ground of the Brianteo stadium in Monza. In the first leg, Giovanni Stroppa’s team won 2-1, mortgaging their qualification for the final. The double final that gives access to the next Serie A is scheduled for Thursday 26 (first leg) and Sunday 29 May (return): both matches will start at 20.30.
