Kevin Lasagna goal gives Carpi a lift and relegates Hellas Verona

Substitute Kevin Lasagna fired Carpi three points clear of the Serie A relegation zone by settling a 1-0 victory over Empoli that relegated Hellas Verona.
Seventeenth-placed Carpi struggled to exploit their one-man advantage after Empoli striker Levan Mchedlidze was sent off in the 26th minute.
The promoted side finally made the breakthrough when second-half replacement Lasagna turned Lorenzo Pasciuti's cross home with five minutes remaining.
Carpi then lost Lorenzo Lollo to a red card but held on to take an important step away from danger. Verona were, however, cut 10 points adrift at the bottom with only three games remaining.
