The hosts took the lead in the 14th minute when Andrea Bertolacci latched on to a loose ball on the edge of the box and rifled a strike into the bottom corner.

Midway through the first half Manuel Pucciarelli had a chance to level the scores for Empoli, but after being picked out at the back post he put his effort wide of the target.
