Cremonese relegated from Serie A after Spezia draw with Lecce

Cremonese’s brief stay in Serie A came to an end on Sunday when Spezia and Lecce, the teams just ahead of them in the table, played out a goalless draw. 

They are both now out of reach of Cremonese who are destined to return with bottom side Sampdoria to Serie B after one season in the top flight. 

Cremonese’s fate was effectively sealed on Saturday when they were beaten 5-1 at home by Bologna. 

Lecce on 33 points and Spezia, on 31, are still not safe from relegation, however, as either of them can be caught by Hellas Verona, currently in the third relegation position, with 30 points and two matches remaining. 

The first two known promoted sides to move up to Serie A next season are Frosinone, the Serie B champions, and Genoa.

The third will be the winner of the play-offs, for which six clubs are in the running: Bari, Parma, Cagliari, Sudtirol, Reggina and Venice.
