Empoli vs Inter: team news, tactics and score prediction
Inzaghi will be looking to give some rest to Dzeko and Calhanoglu as the latter was not fully fit for the Juventus game. Vecino could start in place of Calhanoglu as he makes some good runs forward which can help Inter as Empoli will be looking to sit deep.
Dzeko might get some rest tonight and Sanchez or Correa could start in place of him. Inzaghi could give Dumfries a start as well since Darmian played for the full 90 minutes against Juventus. Also, Dumfries can help Inter in the final third by stretching Empoli’s defense. Inzaghi could also give some rest to one of his center-backs by bringing Roncchia or Dimarco.
Score Prediction: Empoli 0-2 Inter.
