Inter Milan vs Empoli

, KO: 19:45 Apr 1, 2024, San Siro
Empoli

Inter Milan continue their march towards the Serie A title as they welcome Empoli to San Siro for a Monday night clash. Empoli have struggled for much of the campaign and should be no match for the superior quality of the Nerazzurri.

It has been a truly dominant campaign for Inter Milan, who now appear to be on a procession towards the title. They have only lost once in Serie A this season and are currently 14 points clear at the top of the standings.

Inter Milan’s only defeat this season came back in September when they were beaten 2-1 by Sassuolo. Simone Inzaghi’s men have won nine of their last 10 league matches but were held to a 1-1 draw by Napoli last time out.

The Nerazzurri have also been solid at San Siro this season and have won nine of their last 10 home matches. That run has been driven by a solid defence that has kept seven clean sheets.

With no more international breaks before the end of the season, the task for Empoli will be to secure their survival for another season. They have endured a poor campaign and are just one point above the relegation zone.

The problem for Empoli is that they have not shown the level of fight required to beat the drop having lost their last three matches. They head into Monday’s clash off the back of a 1-0 home defeat to Bologna in their previous Serie A fixture.

Although Empoli were beaten 1-0 at AC Milan in their previous fixture on the road, they have done some good work on their travels. Davide Nicola’s men overcame Sassuolo 3-1 and edged out Salernitana 3-2 prior to their trip to San Siro.

How the bookies view it

Inter Milan are considered overwhelming favourites among the bookies with a home win priced at 2/9 by William Hill. A victory for Empoli is valued at 14/1 by Coral while a draw is set at odds of 6/1 by Paddy Power.

Head to head

Inter Milan have a 25-3 advantage with two draws from 30 previous matches against Empoli. The Nerazzurri have won the last two meetings, including a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in September.

Players to watch

Inter Milan have been solid at the back, particularly at San Siro having kept clean sheets in seven of their last 10 home matches. Benjamin Pavard has caught the eye in recent weeks and can lead the Nerazzurri to a clean sheet at 4/5 with bet365.

As always, Lautaro Martinez will be the one tasked with providing the spark in attack for Inter Milan. The striker has 23 Serie A goals this season and is priced at 4/5 by Unibet to get on the score sheet on Monday.

Anything else catch the eye?

The Nerazzurri are expected to be dominant on Monday and could be backed to win both halves at 6/4 with bet365. Lautaro Martinez has opened the scoring seven times this season and can be backed to grab the first goal on Monday at 11/4 with bet365.
