ROME — Genoa secured safety on the final day of the longest-ever Serie A season, while Lecce dropped down to the second division on Sunday.
Genoa beat Hellas Verona 3-0 to finish four points ahead of Lecce and ensure a 14th consecutive season in the top Italian league. Lecce lost 4-3 to Parma,
Brescia and Spal had already been mathematically relegated.
The coronavirus-delayed season ended almost 12 months after it started on Aug. 24, 2019.
“The longest season in history ends today, in our country’s most difficult year in recent memory,” said Vincenzo Spadafora, Italy’s sports minister.
