Empoli FC will face Inter Milan in a Serie A
match at the Stadio Carlo Castellani which is also known as the Computer Gross Arena on 24 September.
The Blues succumbed to an embarrassing 7-0 defeat to AS Roma away on 17 September as they extended their winless run to six matches in the competition.
Empoli are also winless in their last three matches at home in the league having recorded three consecutive defeats at the Stadio Carlo Castellani.
Meanwhile, Inter are enjoying a six-match unbeaten run in Serie A having secured an impressive 5-1 win over their arch-rivals AC Milan at home on 16 September.
The Big Grass Snake is also undefeated in their last two matches on the road in the league having registered two successive victories as the away side.
Elia Caprile is the only player on Empoli's injury list at the moment as the goalkeeper nurses an ankle injury and the club has no suspension worries,
Francesco Acerbi and Stefano Sensi Stefano will be missing due to their respective injuries when Inter face Empoli, but the Big Grass Snake have no suspicion concerns.
“We’ve had an ideal start to the season. A great derby, we always stayed focused, kept the right distances between the lines," Inter manager Simone Inzaghi said after his side's win over AC Milan.
“We scored goals at the right moments and the substitutes did very well right in the moment after we had conceded the goal for 2-1. Congratulations to the guys, we’re very satisfied but this is only the start.
"We know how much the whole Inter family cares about this derby. Now we have a series of matches played close together on the way, and we’ll prepare for them. I just watch my players, what they do in training," he added.
"I was a bit worried because, with the first three matches, we had a whole week to prepare. And this time around, some of my players had been away with their national teams.”
Inter beat Empoli 3-1 in their last meeting in Serie A which was on 23 April 2023 at the Stadio Carlo Castellani.
The victory saw the Big Grass Snake return to winning ways against the Blues who had secured their first league win over Inter since 2006 prior to the abovementioned match.
