Empoli will be hoping to get back to winning ways with a victory over Bologna in this fixture.

Empoli are currently 17th in the Serie A table after collecting just 29 points from 34 games.

They were recently on a winning run after winning 2 on the bounce but lost their last league game which brought that run to an end.

They have won just 2 of their last 10 league games.

A win in this game could save them from relegation but a loss would bring them within 1 point of the relegation zone.

Their recent home form is not good enough – they have not won any of their 6 home games, losing 4 and drawing 2 of those fixtures.

Bologna are also struggling in the league – they have 38 points from 34 games and they are currently in 16th position in the league table.

They have won 3 of their last 10 league games, losing 5 and drawing 2.

They are safe from relegation this season but if they lose this game, they might finish further down the table than they would want.

They have just 1 win from their last 8 away games losing 4 of those fixtures.

Empoli (probable): Skorupski; Laurini, Bellusci, Barba, Pasqual; Tello, Diousse, Krunic; El Kaddouri; Pucciarelli, Thiam

Suspended: None

Bologna (probable): Mirante; Torosidis, Gastaldello, Maietta, Mbaye; Dzemaili, Viviani, Taider; Verdi, Destro, Krejci

Suspended: None
