Venezia in ecstasy: promotion to Serie A

The field of participants for next year's Serie A is complete: Venezia grabbed the last ticket in the playoffs against Cremonese on Sunday evening.

Parma had long been a promoted team, while Como followed suit as second in the Serie B table. The last team to make it to the first division is Venezia. Paolo Vanoli's team won the playoff final against Cremonese 1-0 in front of their own fans on Sunday. The first leg ended in a 0-0 draw.


Christian Gytkjær scored the decisive goal in the 26th minute when the Dane was successful with an attempt from the edge of the penalty area. Although Cremonese had over 70 percent possession of the ball in the second half and had many good chances to equalize, the home side's defense withstood the pressure. Venezia is promoted back to Serie A three years after relegation.
