Livorno Crushes Brescia’s Serie A Dreams

June 21, 2009

Livorno crushed Danny Szetela’s Brescia side 3-0 in the final leg of their promotion playoff and will return to Serie A next season. Livorno’s win capped a 5-2 aggregate win in the Serie B playoffs. Lingering injuries kept Danny Szetela out of the side which will remain in Serie B for at least one more season. Szetela’s loan deal to Brescia expires at the end of June and its still not clear whether he’ll stay with the club, move back to Racing Santander, or be picked up by another European side.

Francesco Tavano, Alessandro Diamanti and Martin Bergvold were the goal scorers for Livorno, which returns to the top flight after finishing the 2007-08 Serie A campaign bottom of the table.

American midfielder Danny Szetela did not play in Brescia’s 2-2 draw with Livorno yesterday, the first leg in a home-and-away series to determine who will play in Serie A next year.

Given that the away goals rule does not apply and the higher seeded team (Livorno) advances if the goal aggregate is tied, Brescia faces a must-win situation on the road next week at Livorno.
