Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Inter will look to stay in the Scudetto race when they face Empoli in the Serie A round 19. The Nerazzurri recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Verona at the weekend, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to melt Napoli’s advantage in the standings. The likes of Brozovic, Handanovic, and Lukaku should miss out with injuries for the home side, while important midfielder Nicolo Barella is widely expected to return to the starting XI after overcoming his injury.
Meanwhile, the Azzurri recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sampdoria thanks to Tyronne Ebuehi’s goal. Empoli, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Inter’s party at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. You should know that Inter defeated Empoli in each of their last eight meetings at the venue, speaking of the Serie A encounters. As for the away team, Marin misses out through suspension, while both Destro and Tonelli are sidelined with injuries.
