Inter Milan vs. Empoli: Match Preview, Team News and Ways to Watch

Last home game of the season folks.

A win in the last two matches is enough to wrap up 4th place. That's the best spot the team can achieve at this point so that should be the goal. This weekend's fixture provides Mancini and his players the perfect opportunity to make this happen when they host mid-table Empoli. The reverse fixture saw Inter win in a Mancini-special (1-0) thanks to another Icardi goal, so the home fans should be fairly confident that their side can take a positive result from this match.

Murillo's sending off in the Lazio loss means he will not play in tomorrow's match and will most likely be replaced by Juan Jesus. Adem Ljajic picked up a slight knock in training this week but he seems to have shaken it off to make the squad. Empoli will be missing Lukasz Skorupski, Marko Livaja and Vincent Laurini for this match.

The Lazio match was an incredibly lackluster performance and Mancini ripped into the players afterwards for their apathetic showing in that game. Those who start the match tomorrow should be eager to put in effort worthy of Inter players to make their fans proud of them. This is the final home game this season, let's hope they make it one to remember.

Projected Starting XIs:

Inter Milan: Handanovic; D’Ambrosio, Miranda, Juan Jesus, Nagatomo; Medel, Kondogbia; Brozovic, Jovetic, Perisic; Icardi

Empoli: Pelagotti; Bittante, Costa, Tonelli, Mario Rui; Zielinski, Paredes, Croce; Saponara; Maccarone, Pucciarelli
