Success, against the Alvini team, is too heavy for the classification in the relegation zone: in fact Empoli rises to +10 right on the grigiorossi, currently in third place. Thus Tuscans go to the world stop with the perfect arrangement of those who are seasonal targets.

At 36′ Buonaiuto tries again and attempts an overhead kick that ends high. Half an hour later the match is interrupted by a violent Grassi-Aiwu plane crash, with the midfielder suffering the worst and being rescued with plenty of bandages. Blue strikers Lammers and Satriano were bad, and far from threatening Karneski. In the interval, Zanetti threw at Campiaghi who scored after 16 seconds: he anticipates Aywo on the edge of the area and scores his first Serie A goal with a southern ball in front of Karneski. , however, having to deal with the vicar in a state of mercy and able to oppose various attempts.
