Coppa: Cremonese beat Empoli

Cremonese caused an upset by knocking Empoli out of the Coppa Italia and their next opponents will be Lazio in the Round of 16.

The Fourth Round of the competition began this afternoon with Cremonese sweeping Serie B promotion hopefuls Empoli aside.

It was decided by a goal 35 minutes into the first half, when Claiton dos Santos redirected a long-range Michele Castagnetti strike with a delicate flick to wrong-foot the goalkeeper.

Simone Palombi was denied a second for Cremonese by the woodwork, but Empoli’s Davide Merola will regret a late miss.

Cremonese’s next Coppa Italia opponent will be Lazio on January 15.
