Brescia wins promotion to Serie A
Brescia will play in the Serie A next season after beating
Torino 2-1 in the second leg of the Italian second division playoff
Brescia, which played out a scoreless draw in Turin last
Wednesday, took a 34th minute lead Sunday through Davide Possanzini
before strike partner Andrea Caracciolo made it 2-0 from the
penalty spot in the 67th.
Torino had defender Danilo D’Ambrosio sent off two minutes
later, but still managed to pull a goal back through substitute
Rachid Arma in the 86th. It was reduced to nine men in the fourth
minute of added time after Apimah Barusso was shown a red card.
Brescia, back after a five-year absence, will join Lecce and
Cesena in Italy’s top flight next season.
