Atalanta-Empoli, the probable formations

Atalanta and Empoli on the pitch in the evening at 8:45 p.m. for the second advance of the 27th day of Serie A. The Orobici have been winless in the league for more than a month now and are on the hunt for the three points to relaunch themselves in the Europa zone, the Azzurri also haven’t won in a long time and are coming off three painful knockouts in a row (the relegation zone is still 9 points away, however).

In attack are Gasperini’s biggest doubts, who could revive Lookman paired with Hojlund. However, Muriel and Boga are hot on their heels, further back is Zapata, who is injured. In Empoli, Caputo and Satriani up front supported by Baldanzi.

Atalanta-Empoli, the likely lineups.

Atalanta (3-4-1-2): Musso; Toloi, Scalvini, Palomino; Zappacosta, De Roon, Ederson, Maehle; Pasalic; Lookman, Hojlund. All. Gasperini.

Empoli (4-3-1-2): Perisan; Ebuehi, Ismajli, Luperto, Parisi; Akpa-Akpro, Marin, Bandinelli; Baldanzi; Caputo, Satriano. All. Zanetti.
