In response to a fresh hearing examining the team's prior transfer activities, Juventus has been penalised 10 points instead of the initially given a 15-point punishment in January which was ruled out in April by Italy's highest sporting stating that the issue be re-examined. Before the team's 4-1 loss to Empoli, the new verdict was made public. Juventus were in second place in the Serie A standings prior to Monday's decision. Juventus is now seventh in Serie A, outside of the slots necessary to qualify for Europe as a result of the penalty.
Milik's foul on Nicolo Cambiaghi resulted in an Empoli penalty, which striker Caputo successfully scored to give the home team the lead in the 18th minute. Three minutes later, defender Luperto doubled Empoli's advantage by striking from a corner into the roof of the net on a rebound. Into the second half midfielder Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro made a solo run before setting the ball up for Caputo, who chipped to make it 3-0.
Chiesa, who had come on as a halftime substitute and was making his 200th appearance in Serie A, scored to put an end to Juventus' goal-scoring woes five minutes from the end. However, Juventus gave up once more in stoppage time when forward Piccoli quickly slipped past three Juventus defenders to secure the victory for Empoli.
