Starting from the 2022–23 season, should the first and second, or 17th and 18th-placed teams at the end of the season be tied on points, a play-off tiebreaker match will be held at a neutral site to determine the title and final team relegated respectively.
The tiebreaker will not have extra time, and will instead directly go to a penalty shoot-out should the two teams be tied after 90 minutes. This is the first time play-offs have been used since the 2004–05 campaign.

Serie A Table
Lazio’s Felipe Anderson, Luis Alberto and Pedro secured a 3-1 home victory over Inter Milan that took their side top of Serie A on Friday as the visitors dropped their first points of the season on coach Simone Inzaghi’s return to his old club.
Lazio provisionally lead the standings with seven points from three games, while Inter are a point behind in fourth.
Lazio flew out of the traps against Inter in an attempt to gain an early advantage, after they failed to score for the first time in 10 league games when they were held to a goalless draw by Torino last time out.
Clearly fired up, they sent the visitors an early alert when striker Ciro Immobile received a beautiful pass inside the box and tried to beat Inter keeper Samir Handanovic with a first-time shot which went just wide of the right post.
Lazio’s captain, who scored the most goals (27) during the 2021-22 Serie A season, had another chance in the 37th minute — this time on target — but his strike was cleared by Handanovic.
