In their fiefdom of the Carlo Castellani stadium, needed to come back and get the comeback of a match that opened at minute 57 for the visit of Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic.

The local eleven fought to achieve parity, but what they could do the most in that first segment was to keep the scoreboard with a minimum disadvantage of 0-1. In the second half, the cast led by Aurelio Andreazzoli came out ready to tie the game and it was not until late that he managed to do so, through midfielder Filippo Bandinelli at minute 87 ‘.

Inspired by Bandinelli’s target, “Los Azules” launched themselves with everything to attack and managed to win the goal by Andrea Pinamonti, who shot low to the left post to certify the final 2-1.

With this success, Empoli is tenth with 19 points, identical to what Hellas Verona adds and two from a trio led by Lazio, followed by Juventus from Turin and Fiorentina, occupying positions six, seven and eight, in that order.

In the other final match of the day, Sampdoria defeated Verona 3-1 with goals scored by Antonio Candreva at minute 51 ‘, Albin Ekdal (77’) and Nikola Murru (90 ‘).

For the defeated, Adrien Tameze saved the honor at minute 37 with a right-footed shot from outside the area that got into the net of the host team.

The challenges Juventus-Atalanta and Venezia-Inter Milan, defending champion, complete Saturday’s program.
