Preview: With three rounds left to navigate, Inter Milan are in the position of realistically having to win all of their remaining fixtures if they are to successfully retain their Serie A title.

Inter Milan – Champions back on top soon?

On Friday, in the weekend’s early kick-off, Inter Milan have an opportunity to steal a march on their cross-city rivals in the race for the Scudetto, with AC Milan not taking to the pitch until the final fixture of the round on Sunday. The fact they can do so against Empoli, opponents they have beaten the last eight times they have met in Serie A, which includes the last seven at San Siro, only adds to the expectancy.

After the recent loss at Bologna, though, where an error from stand-in goalkeeper Ionut Radu cost them dearly, the Nerazzurri did well to regain in Udine last time. A hard-fought 2-1 win over Udinese could prove invaluable come the end of the season, securing them a fifth league victory in their last six outings. Another here, meanwhile, would see them win three on the bounce at San Siro for the first time since January.

Key Stat: This season, Inter Milan have won 12 of 17 (71%) of Serie A home matches, with eight of these victories coming by way of a two goal margin or more.

Empoli – Comfortable in mid-table and it shows?

Sitting 11 points clear of 18th-placed Salernitana, who are the only member of the division’s bottom three still capable of catching them, Empoli are all but assured of their Serie A status for another season. This despite some rotten form, returning a solitary win in 18 Serie A outings. That was against third-place Napoli, though, a thrilling 3-2 come-from-behind success that ended the Partenopei’s title aspirations.

The Tuscany outfit now boast the scalps of Fiorentina, Juventus and Napoli in 2021-22, beating the latter home and away. However, any hopes of adding champions Inter to the list are tempered by several factors. Not least a dismal run of away form. Gli Azzurri are winless on the road since December (D5 L4). Moreover, though, they would fail to secure even a point across all seven prior head-to-heads as the visiting side.

Key Stat: In Empoli’s most recent Serie A away game, Andrea Pinamonti’s grabbed a consolation from the penalty spot in a 4-1 defeat to Udinese. The side from Tuscany hadn’t scored in any of five previous away league games.

Inter Milan Vs Empoli Betting Advice

Last time out Inter Milan held their nerve as they ground out a narrow victory on the road against an Udinese side which had been in prolific form beforehand. It was a vital win as far as the title race was concerned. Simone Inzaghi probably knows his team has to win all their remaining fixtures to usurp Milan, and even then it might not suffice, making three points at San Siro against Empoli imperative.


Inter Milan Vs Empoli – Key Facts:

  • More than 18 years has passed since Empoli last celebrated a Serie A win at San Siro versus Inter Milan. The Nerazzurri won all seven subsequent league encounters as the home side.
  • Whereas Inter Milan boast five wins from their past six Serie A matches, it is one win in 18 (D8 L9) for an Empoli side whose last away victory dates back almost five months.
  • Inter have conceded in each of their last four league fixtures. However, Empoli couldn’t muster up a goal in five of six previous away league games.


This has the hallmarks of a more forgiving assignment for Inter, seeking their third win in a row as hosts versus opponents with no win on the road in 2022. Empoli hadn’t managed a goal in five successive away league games before netting in a 4-1 loss away to Udinese, contributing towards five of their last six away matches seeing Under 3.5 Goals. That same bet returned a winner in seven of Inter’s last nine at home.
