Empoli vs Inter: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online

Inter are on cloud nine after making it into the semi-finals of the Champions League but if they don't win the tournament or see their Serie A form improve, they won't be in it next year. A big performance away at Empoli is needed.


Inter fans will still be beaming with joy at the fact that they are into the semi-finals of the Champions League but the players have to quickly turn their attention to making sure they are in the tournament again next season.

Serie A Matchday 31 sees Inter travel to Empoli for the early game on Sunday and they are simply in desperate need of a win in the league. They have not won in Serie A since early March when they beat Lecce and they are currently out of the top four.

The Champions League and Coppa Italia form may have kept Simone Inzaghi in his job this season but the Serie A form has been truly awful with Inter already losing 11 times. Three points are a must against Empoli.

Empoli vs Inter: Predicted line-ups

With the news that Milan Skriniar has undergone back surgery, there is a chance he will not be seen in an Inter shirt again. Stefan de Vrij is a risk and may not start. Beyond that, Simone Inzaghi has his full squad to choose from.

Paolo Zanetti will hope to have Ismajli back from injury for this game but that is his only serious concern. The likes of Tommaso Baldanzi and Fabiano Parisi will be looking to make a good impression as they have a chance of earning moves away from the club in the summer.

Empoli predicted XI vs Inter (4-3-1-2): Perisan; Ebuehi, Ismajli, Luperto, Parisi; Fazzini, Marin, Bandinelli; Baldanzi; Caputo, Piccoli.

Inter predicted XI vs Empoli (3-5-2): Onana; D’Ambrosio, Acerbi, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Gosens; Lukaku, Correa.
