Relegation tie-breaker[edit]

The 3 last-placed teams in Serie A were guaranteed relegation. However, due to a tie for 17th place between Lucchese and Triestina, the teams had to play a tie-breaker to determine which team would be relegated and which team qualified for the playoff.

Team 1  Score  Team 2
Triestina Italy 3-3 Italy Lucchese

The match was null.

Game played in Milan

Triestina Italy 1-0 Italy Lucchese

Lucchese was relegated and Triestina qualified for the playoff game against Brescia, Serie B's 2nd-placed team.

Serie A qualification play-off[edit]

Since it was decided to reduce the number of Serie A teams from 20 to 18 for the 1952-1953 season, only the top 16 teams in Serie A were guaranteed to remain there the following season, and only the first-placed team in Serie B was guaranteed a direct promotion to Serie A. The 18th team would be decided in a one-game playoff between the 17th-placed team in Serie A and the 2nd-placed team in Serie B.

Game played in Valdagno
Team 1  Score  Team 2
Brescia Italy 0-1 Italy Triestina

Triestina maintained its place in Serie A. Lucchese, Padova and Legnano were relegated while only Roma, the Serie B champion, was promoted.
