Notes:
  1. ^ The Sport Judge had initially annulled the result of 0-1 of the match Bassano-Pergocrema for mistaken identity from the referee who has warned Guidetti instead Inacio that had to be expelled for a second yellow card. The Federal Court of Justice has restored instead the result of 0-1.
