Empoli vs Inter Milan Prediction: Serie A Match

Inter Milan returns to domestic action on Sunday after securing their spot in the semi-finals of the Champions League. They will need to win this weekend against Empoli to ensure that they have a chance of competing in the premier European competition once again next term.


Serie A Preview

Inter Milan comes into this fixture sitting fifth in the standings, and they could end the round in sixth. They have been on a terrible run of form domestically, as they have lost four of their previous five matches. However, the confidence around the camp should be high coming into this match on the road, as they secured their spot in the last four of the Champions League in midweek following a 3-3 draw against Benfica.

But, their domestic run of form would be a huge concern ahead of this weekend. They haven’t won any of their last five in Serie A. Inter hasn’t gone on a longer winless sequence in the Italian division since going eight matches without a success between December 2017 and February 2018. 

Empoli will be playing with slightly more freedom this weekend, as they now have a nine-point cushion over the relegation places in the Italian top flight. However, they come into this fixture after winning just once in their previous five matches. Over that period, they have suffered three defeats, including in their most recent outing against Cremonese. 

Their poor run also stretches over their previous eleven matches, as they have recorded just a single victory. They have lacked quality in the final third in each of their last two matches, as they have failed to find the back of the net. They haven’t gone three successive matches without scoring in Serie A since March 2017. 

Empoli vs Inter Milan Head to Head 

Empoli has a poor record in this fixture, as they have registered just four wins in their previous 29 league matches against Inter Milan. However, they did record a win in the previous meeting between the sides this term. But, they have never won consecutive fixtures against the Italian giants.

Empoli vs Inter Milan Prediction 

Inter Milan’s run to the Champions League semi-finals will give them huge confidence coming into this fixture on Sunday. We could see that momentum playing a significant role, as Inter end their long wait for a victory against Empoli.
