Empoli-Frosinone 0-0

If Verona takes an important step toward salvation with its home win over Fiorentina (2-1), the same cannot be said for Empoli and Frosinone in the other Sunday 3 p.m. match of the 35th day of Serie A. Toscani and Ciociari, in fact, do not go beyond 0-0 in the salvation clash played at the Castellani. 

The first squillo è of Frosinone with a shot from the limit by Mazzitelli that forces Caprile to deflect into the corner. The Azzurri responded on 16' with Niang, who kicked at Cerofolini but was stopped for offside. Four minutes later Empoli goes ahead with Gyasi’s tap-in after Cerofolini’s rebound on Grassi’s low right-footed shot but the referee cancels for offside. In the final Cheddira makes himself dangerous with a right-footed shot but Caprile c'è.

In the resumption, Marin immediately tried with a shot from the limit but his conclusion was deflected into a corner. In 54' the guests answered with Cheddira but his attempt from inside the area was bricked. Ten minutes later è again the Moroccan striker to make himself dangerous but his backheel shot is saved by Bereszynski. In the final thrill for the ciociari: the newly entered Caputo hits the post, but he was offside at the time of the shot.

Empoli and Frosinone take a point apiece that does not move their standings: the Azzurri and Gialloblù remain paired at 32, + 3 over Udinese, committed Monday night against Napoli, and Sassuolo, which beat Inter in Saturday evening’s advance.
