Inter vs Empoli: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online – Serie A 2023/24 

Inter return to Serie A action with Matchday 30 fixture against Empoli. The Nerazzurri want to finish the season in style, whilst Davide Nicola's side are right back in the relegation battle.


Inter are back in Serie A action on Monday night when they face Empoli at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Matchday 30, with the scudetto now firmly in their sights.

After a heartbreaking exit from the Champions League and a draw against Napoli on Matchday 29, Simone Inzaghi will be wanting his side to return from the international break at their best with a performance fitting of their 14-point lead at the top.

The visitors will not be optimistic about this clash given their dip in form and a loss could bring them back into the bottom three. After three losses in a row, one of those against fellow strugglers Cagliari, fans of the Azzurri will be hoping for a brave performance from their side, reminiscent of their performance in this fixture last season.
