Immediately after the shock of 10 points deducted, Juventus marched to Empoli’s field and received a miserable defeat.
Recently, the appeal court of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) decided to deduct Juventus 10 points for fraudulently raising capital through transfer activities. With this ruling, from 2nd place with 69 points, Juventus was beaten down to 7th.
It seems that this terrible news has seriously affected the morale of Juventus players. They marched to Empoli’s field with a broken spirit and conceded two easy goals after the first 45 minutes. Sebastiano Luperto and Francesco Caputo are the ones who scored for Empoli.
In the 47th minute, Caputo again helped Empoli to have a goal to increase the score to 3-0 and almost knock down all hopes of the away team’s points. It was not until the 85th minute that Juventus got the honorable goal from Federico Chiesa.
However, striker Roberto Piccoli of the home team has not yet let go of the “Old lady” fans. In the 3rd minute of injury time, Piccoli netted Wojciech Szczęsny for the 4th time and almost ended the visitors’ hopes of attending the Champions League next season.
Final: Empoli 4-1
Scoring: Caputo 18′, 47′, Luperto 21′, Chiesa 85′, Piccoli 90+3.
