After that the game came to a long standstill. In the 68th minute, David Okereke scored to increase the lead for Venezia.
The goal that reduced the score to 1-2 came right at the end of the game, when Nedim Bajrami scored a goal for Empoli. But Empoli ran out of steam, what brought the final score to 1-2.
