Serie B may be the most exciting league in the world

25 October at 12:40
If you’re looking for season-long drama in Italy, Serie B is the league to watch. After 11 matches, only 10 points separate the leaders, Empoli, from the cellar-dweller, Pro Vercelli, in the 22-team league.

Last night, 20 of the 22 teams in Serie B were in action. At the end of the day, four teams had passed the previous week’s leader, Venezia. Empoli, Frosinone, and Palermo all won, while Cremonese drew to drop the Venetians to fifth place after they dropped their match to Cittadella. Six teams are tied with Cittadella for seventh place, only four points off the lead. 

With only 10 points, last-place Pro Vercelli, despite only winning two matches, is still within striking distance of leaders Empoli. The Serie A veterans have 20 points but five teams are within three points of them, with 11 being within four.

With swings in the standings this violent, Serie B is going to be a thrilling league to follow all season long.
