Team News: Empoli
Empoli boss Pasquale Marino has no fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash thanks to a completely injury-free group ready to go.
Team News: Cosenza
From a largely available group, there is only the sole fitness problem for the Cosenza manager Roberto Occhiuzzi to be concerned about. Riccardo Moreo (Unknown Injury) won’t be playing here.
We’re envisaging that Cosenza may not find it easy to be putting a goal past this Empoli team who we think will get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
That’s why we have predicted a good battle with a 1-0 win for Empoli at the end of this game.
There should be little in it.
