A momentous week for Empoli ended with a whimper as they shared a goalless draw with Napoli on Sunday.

The Tuscan minnows played their first game in European competition on Thursday night and enjoyed a 2-1 victory over Swiss champions FC Zurich in the first leg of their UEFA Cup first round tie, but a first league win of the season remains elusive following the stalemate with high-flying Napoli.

Despite their excursion into continental competition, Empoli coach Luigi Cagni has declared top flight survival as his main priority this season and they now have two points from four games.
