Pescara's relegation to Serie B is confirmed by a 4-1 defeat at Genoa, with Marco Borriello bagging a brace.

A 4-1 defeat at Genoa this afternoon has finally confirmed Pescara as the first side to be relegated from Serie A this season.

Pescara knew that only a win would do to stave off relegation for another week, but the visitors fell behind early on, thanks to a measured header from Antonio Floro Flores.

Marco Borriello quickly doubled Genoa's advantage, but a neat header into the top corner from Pescara captain Giuseppe Sculli five minutes later gave the visitors hope.

A superb exchange between Andrea Bertolacci and Borrelio broke Pescara's stubborn resistance midway through the second half, with Genoa's top scorer applying a composed finish from close range to complete a brace.

Bertolacci put the result beyond doubt late on with Genoa's fourth to give Davide Ballardini's side precious three points in their own fight to avoid the drop.

Genoa's Marco Borriello is congratulated by team mates after scoring the opening goal against Lazio on February 3, 2013
