When AC Milan plays Empoli on January 7 at Carlo Castellani, they will be looking to get a strong win.
The hosts managed to avoid relegation in the previous two seasons with little difficulty, but they will require a miracle to remain in this tier the following year. Only one point separates Aurelio Andreazzoli’s team from the bottom of the standings going into this match. They have now gone 6 games without a victory. From their previous 3 matches, in which they were defeated 1-0 and 0-2 by Torino and Lazio, respectively, Empoli can only claim one point. After their most recent game, they defeated Cagliari 0-0, which was somewhat of a relief. In the Serie A, Empoli managed just one pitiful home victory out of six possible, drawing 2 and losing 3 games with 5 goals scored and 10 allowed. To make matters worse for the home team, Bartosz Bereszynski and Gabriele Guarino are still out with injury, and defender Liberato Cacace is suspended.
Milan had a difficult run from October until the beginning of December, but they have recovered well after defeating Newcastle United 2-1, to guarantee a berth in the Europa League. The team led by Stefano Pioli will head into this weekend’s showdown having won 4 of their previous 5 games and scoring 2 goals or more in each of those contests. The fact that they have lost their previous four away league games will still worry away supporters. AC Milan started their run of three straight wins with a 2-2 tie versus Salernitana. They defeated Sassuolo 1-0 before defeating Cagliari 4-1. In contrast, AC Milan has triumphed twice, drawn 3 and lost 2 of their past 6 away Serie A games. There are no suspended players on the home squad, however Fikayo Tomori, Tommaso Pobega, Noah Okafor, Malick Thiaw, Pierre Kalulu, and Marco Sportiello are all out due to injuries.
