LATINA, Italy -- Cesena beat Latina 2-1 on Wednesday to earn promotion to the top flight of Italian football, winning 4-2 on aggregate.

Cesena will join Serie B champion Palermo and Empoli in the top tier next season.

Alessandro Bruno gave Latina hope when he scored in the 13th minute to level the aggregate score -- after Cesena had won the first leg of the playoff final 2-1.

But Gregoire Defrel equalized nine minutes after halftime and Emmanuel Cascione drove home a stoppage-time penalty to secure matters after Karim Laribi fouled Guido Marilungo.

Cesena has spent the past two seasons in Italy's second division following relegation from Serie A in 2012.

It finished fourth in Serie B this year, two points behind Latina.

Cesena beat Modena 2-1 on aggregate in the semifinals.
