Inter vs Empoli Predictions
Can Inter Milan retain their spot in the table? Can Empoli defeat Inter? Go through our prediction.
Will Inter Qualify for the Champions League?
Inter had a firm grasp of the third spot in the Serie A table, which has lately been taken away by Atalanta. Inter’s recent loss against Napoli and Atalanta’s draw against Juventus took Inter down the table to the 4th spot. Inter is now 13 points behind the second-placed Napoli and has the same score as the third-placed Atalanta.
Moving up to the second spot is no more possible with just one match left, but their position in the table is at risk with three clubs (Atalanta, Roma, and Milan) on its tail. Their previous match was against Napoli which resulted in a loss for Inter. Inter was able to score just 1 goal, whereas Napoli went on to net 4 goals and won the match 4-1.
Will Empoli get Relegated this Season?
Empoli is currently in a safer zone with just 1 point ahead of the relegated Genoa. There are chances that the final match might change the standings and therefore this match against Inter is very important for Empoli to win. Their previous match was against Torino which helped the team escape relegation.
Empoli was able to claim 4 goals against Torino, whereas Torino scored just 1 goal at the 56th-minute. Empoli took the lead in the first half of the match itself with the 27th-minute goal scored by Afriyie Acquah. They scored 3 more goals in the second half of the match and won the game 4-1.
Who Will Win? – Our Prediction
Inter’s position in the table is at risk as 3 other teams are looking for ways to reach the top 4 spots. Inter has to win this match against Empoli in order to keep up with their next year’s Champions League qualifying dream. Empoli has to win this match in order to stay away from relegation as they are very close to being relegated.
Both the teams will be playing at the San Siro Stadium for different reasons with the ultimate aim of winning the match. In whose favor will the match end? Though it is a survival match for Empoli, chances are high for Internazionale to turn the Sunday’s match in their favor.
