Empoli are having a poor form lately and are looking to find their feet. They are 10th in the Italian Serie A and hope to progress in the table, but there is no chance for European qualification just season.

The Old Lady need a win in this match to keep their top spot secured as there is only a 3 point gap with Napoli in the second place.
