Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Milan will look to retain top position in the Serie A table when they host Empoli to their Stadio San Siro on Saturday evening. The Rossoneri are determined to regain the domestic trophy, but both Inter and Napoli are still breathing down their neck. Olivier Giroud, who scored the winner against the Partenopei at the weekend, should keep his place up front, while Theo Hernandez misses the match through suspension.
All Bakayoko, Kjaer, and Romagnoli remain in the recovery room. The Azzurri, on the other hand, failed to win the previous eleven league fixtures, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the home team. In the first half of the season Milan outplayed Empoli 4-2, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. Marchizza and Haas remain on the sidelines with injuries, but they should be the only absentees in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Sandro Tonali):
After starting his youth career at Piacenza back in 2009, Sandro Tonali moved to Brescia three years later. The 181-cm-tall defender has been playing for le Rondinelle ever since and it has to be noted that he made his debut with the Stadio Mario Rigamonti outfit on August 26, 2017 in a 2-1 defeat to Avellino.

He made his debut with the Italy U21 national team on June 19, 2019 in a 1-0 defeat to Poland. His main position is defensive midfielder, but he is used as a central midfielder as well. Sandro’s preferred foot is right and his contract with Brescia should expire on June 30, 2021.
