Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Inter will look to put an extra pressure on league leaders Milan when they take on Empoli in the Serie A round 36. The Nerazzurri quickly bounced back from an unlucky defeat to Bologna, with the team beating Udinese at Dacia Arena at the weekend. Inter face yet another must-win situation against Empoli, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field. Hakan Calhanoglu is back from suspension, while fellow midfielder Bastoni is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
The Azzurri, on the other hand, head into the match with a severely-weakened squad. Both Stojanovic and Verre are banned for the game, while the likes of Marchizza, Tonelli, and Haas miss out through injuries. Since Empoli failed to impress in a 3-1 home defeat to Torino, we are tempted to put our money on Simone Inzaghi’s troops.
