Empoli take on Udinese in a clash between both sides with opposite starts to 2017, with the home side unbeaten this year.
Despite an eight point gap between themselves and 18th placed Palermo, Empoli cannot afford to let things slip with the sides below having strengthened their teams as the relegation battle heats up. Udinese on the other hand have adjusted to Del Neri’s tactics and climbed up the table to 11th place, despite losing their last two matches to Inter and Roma at home.
