Empoli and Cagliari settle for a goalless draw

This matchup between two of the bottom three was strictly a struggle for relegation. In addition to Tommaso Augello, Nahitan Nandez, Eldor Shomurodov, Elio Capradossi, and Marko Rog suffering injuries, the Sardinians also had Antoine Makoumbou banned. Giuseppe Pezzella, Gabriele Guarino, and Bartosz Bereszynski were all absent for the visitors, but Francesco Caputo was finally able to start.

When Caputo rolled it across, Daniel Maldini believed he had to score from six yards, but Paulo Azzi made a crucial interception, barely reaching his toes before the ball. At the other end, Azzi again struck only inches wide, but the offside flag had already flown, and Niccolò Cambiaghi's effort was charged down in the area by Alberto Dossena. When Gabriele Zappa brought down Cambiaghi during the counterattack, he took a great deal of danger since, although the VAR on-field review suggested a red card.
