Frosinone extended their unbeaten streak at home to five matches (W4, D1) with a tense 2-1 victory over relegation-threatened Empoli. Despite Empoli’s early pressure, Frosinone had a disallowed goal after Marvin Çuni’s strike was ruled offside following a VAR review. Undeterred, Frosinone focused on building up their play, with captain Luca Mazzitelli hitting the post with a powerful shot just before the hour mark.
Frosinone took the lead when Marvin Çuni showcased his brilliance with a backheeled volley from Arijon Ibrahimović’s cross, beating Empoli goalkeeper Etrit Berisha. The home team continued to press, and Ibrahimović sealed the victory with a well-placed shot after a slick move involving Reinier and Riccardo Marchizza.
Empoli, determined to make a comeback, managed to score through Francesco Caputo’s header, bringing the score to 2-1. However, Caputo’s quick follow-up goal was disallowed for offside, relieving Frosinone of a potential equalizer. The hosts held their ground in the closing stages, securing the win and moving up to 11th place in the table. Empoli, still in a precarious position, faces a tough challenge against Napoli, trailing just two points behind safety as they head into the weekend.
