Under the guidance of coach Davide Nicola, Empoli continued to excel as they secured a 3-1 victory over Nicola’s former team, Salernitana, in Serie A on Friday. The club’s unbeaten run extended to four games since Nicola took over on Jan. 15, leading them to rise four places to 15th in the league standings, putting them eight points clear of Salernitana.
The match saw Empoli take the lead midway through the first half with a fortunate deflection off defender Alessandro Zanoli that looped over the stranded Salernitana goalkeeper. Despite a 69th-minute equalizer from Shon Weissman, Empoli secured the win with M’Baye Niang converting a penalty three minutes from the final whistle and Matteo Cancellieri completing the scoring with a fine breakaway finish in injury time.
With Inter Milan leading the league, sitting four points clear of Juventus with a game in hand, the Serie A competition remains intense.
Overall, Empoli’s impressive form and victory over Salernitana under the leadership of Davide Nicola continue to make waves in the Serie A, leaving fans eager to see their next performance on the field.
