Team News

Empoli
Napoli
  • Youssef Maleh is favourite to start in midfield with Razvan Marin, while Nicolò Cambiaghi will replace Matteo Cancellieri.
  • Pasquale Mazzocchi and Leo Østigård are expected to start on Saturday due to the suspensions of Mário Rui and Amir Rrahmani.

Prediction

  • Empoli suffered a late defeat in Lecce after being second-best for almost the entire game and are just one point above relegation.
  • On the other hand, Napoli's disastrous home form continued with a 2-2 draw against Frosinone on Sunday.
  • With Champions League qualification already out of the picture, the visitors must now focus on securing at least the 7th place in the league table, which is currently occupied by Lazio.
  • Empoli have won just one of their last five matches at home, but have a good record in this fixture in recent seasons.
