Cremonese-Empoli, the probable formations

The 30th day of Serie A starts with the advance match at the Zini. Cremonese and Empoli are on the field at 6:30 pm. The grigiorossi, fresh from the resounding comeback victory at Marassi, are looking to score their second win in a row for the first time in the league to keep the salvation dream still alive. The Tuscans got an excellent point at San Siro against AC Milan and are looking for more important points to stretch over the hot zone.

Ballardini must do without the injured Chiriches and Ciofani, but can count on the recoveries of Benassi and Okereke. The former is a candidate for a starting spot in midfield, with Pickel and Meite. The latter will start from the bench, with Tsadjout and Dessers confirmed in attack.

Zanetti does not recover Vicario; there will still be Perisan between the posts. In defense Ismajli is out, De Winter is ready with Luperto. In attack, Piccoli is favored over Satriano to pair with Caputo, with Baldanzi providing support in the three-quarter.

Likely lineups.

CREMONESE (3-5-2): Carnesecchi; Ferrari, Vasquez, Lochoshvili; Sernicola, Benassi, Pickel, Meite, Valeri; Tsadjout, Dessers. All. Ballardini

EMPOLI (4-3-1-2): Perisan; Ebuehi, De Winter, Luperto, Parisi; Fazzini, Marin, Bandinelli; Baldanzi; Caputo, Piccoli. All. Zanetti
