🗞️ Team News: Empoli

Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Empoli gaffer Pasquale Marino to contend with from a near full-strength group of players. Marcello Gazzola (Achilles tendon surgery) will miss out.

📋 Team News: Benevento

From a largely healthy group of players, there is only the one fitness issue for the Benevento manager Filippo Inzaghi to contend with. Luca Antei (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.

🔮 Prediction

We’re of the view that Empoli could well find it tough to hit the back of the net against this Benevento side who we reckon should emerge victorious. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a hard-fought 0-1 win for Benevento at the end of the 90. Expecting it to be tight.
