Match Preview

The Blues welcome Torino FC to the Stadio Carlo Castellani on Sunday for this Serie A match. A win here likely guarantees Empoli their top-flight status for another season here unless Salernitana wins at Atalanta as well as their other four remaining games. Torino look set to finish the season comfortably in midtable regardless of the outcome here.

Empoli come into the match on a run of three home league games undefeated. They have picked up five points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.

Gli Azzurri won their last league match at home to SSC Napoli. Expected goals of 1.8 to 1.3 in favour of Empoli indicates they didn't deserve all three points on the balance of chances created. Gli Azzurri's Andrea Pinamonti was in good form as he scored a brace of goals against Napoli. Pinamonti now has 12 goals this season in the league for Empoli and is the 6/1 to get the final goal of the game once more here. The final score of the match was 3-2.

Their opponent on Sunday, Torino FC, come into the match on a run of five league games undefeated. They have picked up nine points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.

The Bull shared the points in their last league match away to Atalanta BC, in an eight-goal thriller. Expected goals of 2.6 to 2.4 in favour of Atalanta indicates both teams probably deserved only a point. Explaining how Torino scored four in a match in which they only had four shots on target is a challenge. The fact Atalanta handed Torino 2 penalties in the match, which were converted by Sasa Lukic, as well as scoring an own-goal goes some of the ways to explaining it. Lukic now has five goals this season in the league for Torino and is 4.5/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 4-4.

Empoli team news

Emmanuel Ekong, Riccardo Marchizza (cruciate ligament injury), Nicolas Haas (cruciate ligament), and Lorenzo Tonelli (cruciate ligament injury) will be unavailable for The Blues due to injury on Sunday.

Former Celtic man Liam Henderson will hope his goal off the bench to kick start a comeback from two goals down earns him a start here. Nedim Bajrami’s assist for the winner off the bench also won’t have gone unnoticed.

Torino FC team news

Josip Brekalo replaced Marko Pjaca after just half an hour of the match against Torino. He is likely to keep the shirt if Pjaca can’t recover in time for the match.

Injuries will rule out Armando Izzo (hamstring injury), Magnus Warming (muscular problems), Simone Zaza (knee problems), and Mohamed Fares (cruciate ligament injury) for the trip to the Stadio Carlo Castellani.
