Cesena promoted to Serie A after play-off win

Cesena are back in the Serie A after a two-year absence, after their 4-2 promotion play-off win over Latina on Wednesday.

The northern Italian club won the two-legged tie on aggregate, with a pair of 2-1 victories - the latest of which came at Latina's Stadio Domenico Francioni.

Alessandro Bruno had given Latina a lead on the night and a 2-2 scoreline overall - which would have sent the hosts through given they finished higher than Cesena in the Serie B table - after just 13 minutes.

But Pierpaolo Bisoli's visitors responded well, taking the aggregate lead on 52 minutes via Gregoire Defrel before an injury-time penalty to Emmanuel Cascione sealed their promotion.

Cesena are back in the Italian top flight for the first time since the 2011-12 season, while Latina's bid for a first ever season in the Serie A was denied.
