Empoli boss Aurelio Andreazzoli believes they ‘could’ve scored more goals’ in the 4-2 win over Salernitana, but will learn from the second half errors too.
It was complete domination in the first half, going in front within 90 seconds at the Stadio Arechi and then 4-0 up at the break.
Salernitana tried to mount a comeback and eventually made it 4-2, with only Guglielmo Vicario’s save and goal-line technology denying a third.
“We could’ve scored more goals in the first half,” Andreazzoli told DAZN.
“It’s true we suffered after half-time, but it was unthinkable to avoid that against a Salernitana side pushed on by their fans.
“Every game teaches us to take nothing for granted. We are the 10th youngest squad in Europe, so we need to give these players time to mature. We paid a heavy price for naïve errors against Atalanta and will certainly learn from this game, regardless of the result.”
After some tactical experiments so far this season, Andreazzoli has seemingly found the right shape for Empoli with two strikers and Liam Henderson in support.
“Henderson wasn’t in great shape today, but generally brings balance, quantity and quality. If Patrick Cutrone plays the way he did today, he can be a big help to Andrea Pinamonti too.”
