13th Place Cagliari will hope to bounce back from their loss in their last encounter with a win over the hard fighting Empoli.

Cagliari will be happy to finish the season in their current position – which means they would need to win this match.

They currently have 41 points, just one point more than 14th placed Sassuolo.

They have 3 wins and 3 losses from their last 6 league games, one loss coming in their latest outing.

Their recent home form is good – they have 2 wins from their last 2 at home and will be looking to get another 3 points from this match.

Empoli are hovering just above the relegation zone in 17th position.

They have just 32 points from 35 league games this season after winning 8 of those matches.

They have 3 wins from their last 4 games and recorded a win in their last league match.

If they lose this game, they would drop down to just 1 point above the relegation zone, while a win could see them move up to 16th in the league table.

They are currently on a 2 game winning streak away from home and they will be hoping to win this match to push them away from the relegation zone.
