ROME (AP) - Brazilian defender Rafael Toloi scored in the first half to give Atalanta a 1-0 win at Empoli in Thursday’s lone Serie A match.

Atalanta moved level ninth with Roma, seven points behind leader Inter Milan.

Empoli remained one point above the relegation zone.

Toloi redirected a cross from Maxi Moralez shortly after the half-hour mark with a header for his first Italian league goal.

Empoli protested fruitlessly for a penalty in the 85th when Toloi collided with Manuel Pucciarelli inside the area.
