Empoli will continue their fight to avoid relegation in this game while Atalanta will be playing to end their fairytale season on a winning note.

Empoli are currently languishing in the 17th position in the league table with 32 points from 36 league games this season.

They have managed to win just 8 games all season and they are just 1 point above 18th placed Crotone.

They need to win this game for them to be guaranteed survival this season and if Genoa loses, they might end up in 16th position.

Atalanta have had a very good season and they have proved all their doubters wrong by finishing in one of the European places.

They currently have 66 points from 36 league games, 6 points more than AC Milan who are 6th.

Their recent run of form has not been very good as they have just one win from their last 6 league games and are without a win in their last 3 league games.

They have good away form – despite drawing their last 2 away games, they have a good overall record from their away games with 3 wins and 3 draws from their last 7 away games.

Surprisingly, bookmakers favour Empoli in this tie at home – they are 2.30 while Atalanta are 3.10.  The draw is 3.40.

Empoli (probable): Skorupski; Laurini, Bellusci, Costa, Pasqual; Mauri, Diousse, Croce; El Kaddouri; Thiam, Pucciarelli

Suspended: None

Atalanta (probable): Berisha; Toloi, Caldara, Masiello; Conti, Cristante, Freuler, Spinazzola; Kurtic; Gomez, Petagna

Suspended: None
