Empoli boss Aureliano Andreazzoli sticks with his classic 4-3-1-2 shape featuring ex-Viola midfielder Youssef Maleh, although purported transfer target Tommaso Baldanzi is only on the bench.

Empoli (4-3-2-1): Berisha; Cacace, Walukiewicz, Luperto, Ebuehi; Marin, Grassi, Maleh; Cancellieri; Cambiaghi, Caputo
