Inter Milan kept their composure to remain in the Scudetto race after a late scare from Udinese set up a tense final 15 minutes of their Serie A clash on May 1st. The Nerazzurri will continue their quest for a domestic double as they host Empoli on May 6th, and the match will kick off by 22:15 IST.

Every match is a final for Inter Milan, as they will need all nine points if they hope to leapfrog AC Milan at the top of the table. A ragged Empoli side with one win in their last 19 matches will make the trip to Milan, and confidence is at an all-time low at the Carlo Castellani Stadium.

Teams Status

Take a look at the latest form and team news from Inter Milan and Empoli:
Inter Milan Form and Team News
Every point is important for the Nerazzurri, and a hard-fought victory at Udinese underlined the determination of this Inter team to defend their Scudetto to the final matchday. They played themselves back into the title race with five straight victories but fell to a shock loss at Bologna that dealt a harsh blow to their title hopes.

Inter Milan are yet to lose at home in their last five matches, with one draw and four wins. They will look to dispatch their opponents quickly and turn their attention to the next game. Ivan Perisic finding form at such a crucial time for the Nerazzurri is a plus, and they look confident and sharp in attack.

Samir Handanovic appears to have picked up a knock in the game against Udinese, while Alessandro Bastoni may not be fit enough to feature against Empoli, along with Hakan Çalhanoğlu.
Empoli Form and Team News
Empoli’s early season form is perhaps the only reason the side will avoid relegation this season. They did the double over Napoli, winning 1-0 and 3-2, and there were seventeen matches in all competitions between these two wins.

In those seventeen games, Empoli could only manage nine losses and eight draws, one of the worst Serie A runs in that period. They followed up their heroics against Napoli with a 3-1 loss at home to Torino, a match in which they were down to nine men. They will look to influential players like Andrea Pinamonti to inspire them to an unlikely victory at the San Siro.

Petar Stojanovic and Valerio Verre were red-carded in the Torino match and will miss the trip to Inter. Also, Nicolas Haas, Filippo Bandinelli, Lorenzo Tonelli, and Riccardo Marchizza are sidelined with injuries and may not make the trip to San Siro.

Tipster’s Angle

Inter Milan have been solid in recent weeks, losing only once to Bologna in their last nine Serie A matches, winning six and drawing two. They will be confident of overcoming a struggling Empoli side, who have only managed one win in their last nineteen matches. Here are our tips for this fixture:

Tip: Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.31

In their last ten fixtures in all competitions, Inter Milan have recorded at least two goals in eight matches. Empoli have recorded multi-goal results in six of their last ten, and with Inter finding joy in attack, we expect at least two goals in this fixture. Over 2.5 goals is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.31 odds. 

Tip: Inter Milan to Win Either Half @ 1 085

Inter Milan put two past Udinese in the first half and have won either half in all of their last seven matches. They are desperate to win to pile more pressure on AC Milan, and we expect them to come out on top in at least one half. Inter Milan to win either half is available on the Melbet sportsbook at 1.085 odds.


Inter Milan know they must keep the Scudetto race alive with a convincing win over Empoli. The visitors pulled off a shock victory against Napoli and may be looking to ride their luck to end Inter’s Scudetto hopes. We expect a thrilling football game.
