Cagliari defeating Empoli at the Sant’Elia Stadium and climbing the Serie A Table from the 13th to the 12th position.     It’s a tough defeat for Empoli because they are still at risk to be relegated to the Serie B.

Here is how it stands after this defeat. Empoli are just +1 point above Crotone who are in the 18th position with 36 points after defeating Udinese.   It means that Empoli cannot make more mistakes and win the last 2 games hoping that Crotone loses their games too.  Otherwise, if Crotone wins their remaining games and Empoli loses, then it is Empoli to be relegated and Crotone to be saved.    That’s how tough this defeat against Cagliari is for Empoli.
