Girone A
Alessandria destroyed Siena (5-2) and have now 31 points in 11 games. Just Cremonese (26 points) keep pace with them

Girone B
Hard to tell who will win this girone. Bassano and Venezia tied and now there are five clubs in one point. Nine in 4 points.

Girone C
Two dogs strive for a bone and a third runs away with it. Goalless draw between Lecce and Foggia, Juve Stabia profited of it and are the new leaders.
Juve Stabia 25, Matera, Lecce and Foggia 24

Venezia, very likely Foggia and one of Alessandria/Cremonese will gain the direct promotion to serie B. All of them are clubs with a decent tradition in serie A. Interesting the "grey" (just grey Alessandria, grey-red Cremonese) derby in girone A with Alessandria who looked like the most certain of all Lega Pro clubs to gain the direct promotion to serie B but now risk.
The return to serie B of Alessandria could mean that we have three Piedmontese derbies in serie B as I doubt Novara in serie B have a chance at reaching promotion playoffs, least of all gain promotion to serie A if ever they managed to reach the playoffs anyway, the way I doubt Pro Vercelli will be involved in the relegation to Lega Pro playoffs. Three Piedmontese clubs in serie B would be a crazy achievement, above all if you consider that we are talking about towns (Novara, Vercelli, Alessandria) which are very close both to Milan and Turin and as a consequence most of their people support Juventus, Torino, Milan and Inter first of all. Or at least this is what happened before. I'm realizing that there is a counter-trend, that more and more people are disgusted by the amount of money of top football and look for some refreshing air in their local clubs, whose players are all but poor, but at least do not gain in one year what common people would gain in ten lives. Tavecchio, Lega serie A, big clubs, knock knock knock!

The final will be Alessandria vs Parma.
It's a pity that one of the two clubs will spend one more season in Lega Pro (which will be renamed serie C :yes: ). I wish both clubs could join serie B.
