Empoli breathed a sigh of relief with a dramatic addition and sank Sassuolo


The goal in added time Simone Bastoni gave victory (2-3) in Reggio Emilia to an Empoli that is moving away from the relegation zone, while Sassuolo remains in it, tied on points with Verona.

A set piece by Razvan Marin was taken advantage of by Bastoni, who entered the field in the second half, to beat a header for the third time against Andrea Consigli and give success to visitors.

With different dynamics

The clash at Mapei Stadium had dramatic overtones between two relegation-threatened teams but with different dynamics. Davide Nicola’s Empoli, leading the scoreboard three times, six games without defeat.

Frame Sebastian Luperto in the eleventh minute and then, in the 64th, the Senegalese Miss Niang, penalty, broke the tie achieved ten before by Andrea Pinamonti also from eleven meters.

With a quarter of an hour left, Gian Marco Ferrari managed to equalize for Sassuolo but with the match pointing to a draw that wasn’t enough for either, Bastoni’s timely strike came in the 94th minute.

Empoli moved away from the hot zone

The victory puts Empoli in thirteenth, five points behind the relegation mark of Verona, second to last with 20, the same as a Sassuolo marking the edge of safety.
