A goalless draw.  Pressure continues for Atalanta to win games to avoid falling in the relegation zone.  Empoli struggling to win and no goals in this game.  Atalanta winning 2 games this season sending the alarm.

Empoli failing to win the third consecutive game.  Hero of the match might be Atalanta goalkeeper Marco Sportiello denying Empoli the joy to celebrate a goal after several attempts even in the 93rd minute!

A clear chance for Empoli was in the 52nd minute with forward Massimo Maccarone challenging with a right footed shot  goalkeeper Sportiello saving  in the bottom right corner.

Empoli (4-3-1-2): Sepe; Hysaj, Tonelli, Rugani, Mario Rui; Vecino, Valdifiori, Croce; Verdi; Maccarone, Tavano.
