Inter Milan vs FC Empoli begins 26.05.2019 at 20:30 CET
Inter spent practically the entire season at positions that lead to the Champions League, mostly occupying the third place, but this team simply cannot avoid to make its situation more complicated. They had seven-game unbeaten streak, however, there were many draws in it and they couldn’t verified their place in the Champions League earlier. In the last round they suffered a heavy defeat by Napoli 4-1 and now the entire season is reduced to this match. The situation is favourable, because the opponent is weaker and they are the hosts but they had to finish everything much earlier and will less uncertainty. They have no problems with injuries, and Vecino and Icardi are back to the starting line-up.
Probable lineups Inter Milan: S. Handanovic – D'Ambrosio, Skriniar, de Vrij, Asamoah – Vecino, Brozovic – Politano, Nainggolan, Perisic – Icardi
Empoli is locked in the bitter survival struggle and right now is positioned above the drop zone, so it seems that the situation is fairly good. Still, they will face a strong team that also needs points, and Genoa breathe down their neck as it has just one point fewer. It is clear that Empoli will definitely survive if it wins, however, it is very difficult to win Inter in Milan and that is in fact their biggest problem. Empoli did all it could in three previous rounds, as it won all three matches; against Fiorentina, Sampdoria and Torino in the last round, when they won 4-1 after a great game. Therefore, it is logical that the team from that match starts this one.
Probable lineups FC Empoli: Dragowski – Maietta, Silvestre, Dell'Orco – Bennacer, di Lorenzo, Acquah, Traore, Pajac – Farias, Caputo
