We’re edging closer and closer to the end of the domestic season across Europe and over in Italy, the big story is the ongoing title race between two sides who share the same city and even the same stadium. It’s going to be an absolute slog of a three-game stretch and today, we’ll take a look at one of those encounters as Inter Milan prepare to play host to Empoli at the San Siro.

Inter Milan

The fact that Inter managed to recapture the Serie A title last season was great for the morale of the club but as an extension to that, they’ve struggled to build and turn it into the kind of dynasty they were hoping for. One of the biggest issues has been the feeling of complacency but if they’re able to keep putting pressure on AC, there’s a decent chance their rivals will crack.

Team News

Barella looks set to be a game day decision as a result of his knee injury with Bastoni also being injured – although those appear to be the only major absences.

Empoli

Empoli have a handful of really talented stars within their ranks but in this particular game, you have to ask what it is they want to achieve. They’re already looking ahead to next season after securing survival and even though it’s good for them to do that, they won’t enjoy the visual of being even closer to the relegation zone by the time the final whistle blows.

Team News

Verre and Stojanovic are both suspended after red cards against Torino with Tonelli and Haas missing out due to injury.

Factors to Consider

  • Inter are 2nd in Serie A whereas Empoli are 14th.
  • Inter have won five and lost one of their last six games.
  • Empoli have won one, drawn two and lost three of their last six games.
  • Inter have scored 14 goals and conceded five in their last six games.
  • Empoli have scored six goals and conceded 11 in their last six games.

Conclusion

Empoli do not have a whole lot to play for here but at the same time, the ‘nothing to lose’ mentality always has the potential to create a bit of uncertainty. Inter need to start on the front foot in this one because with just a handful of fixtures left to go, they can’t afford to slip up. We’re backing them to come out on top with a 2-0 win after a few early scares to really wake them up.
