The probable formations

Serie A Sunday opens with the challenge between Hellas Verona and Empoli, with kickoff at 12:30 pm at the ‘Bentegodi’. Fundamental challenge for Hellas Verona’s race for salvation: a success would in fact allow the Gialloblù to bypass Spezia in the standings and leave, with 90′ to go, the relegation zone.

The Zaffaroni-Bocchetti tandem will rely on the physical strength of Djuric in attack, supported by Verdi and Ngonge. On the other side Paolo Zanetti leads an Empoli with no particular pressure, already safe and sure of a position on the right column of the standings: the goal is to extend the positive series, now at four games (three wins and a draw), in attack space for Caputo with Akpa Akpro, Fazzini and Cambiaghi behind him.

Hellas Verona-Empoli, probable formations:

HELLAS VERONA (3-4-2-1): Montipò; Ceccherini, Hien, Cabal; Faraoni, Tameze, Sulemana, Depaoli; Ngonge, Verdi; Djuric. All. Zaffaroni.

EMPOLI (4-2-3-1): Vicario; Stojanovic, Ismajli, Luperto, Cacace; Grassi, Haas; Akpa Akpro, Fazzini, Cambiaghi; Caputo. All. Zanetti.
