Piacenza Calcio had the highest-scoring season in the club’s history, but in spite of this, a defeat to Verona in the final round would have rendered relegation. Two goals from Dario Hübner helped sealing a 3–0 victory, which propelled Hübner to become top scorer of the entire Serie A, tying for 24 goals with David Trezeguet. The ex-Brescia hitman Hübner came following the promotion, and aged 34, he reached the very top of his level. The season also saw the first three foreign players arrive at Piacenza. Brazilians Matuzalém and Amauri were the most prominent of those.
