MILAN- Luciano Spalletti’s Inter are set to play their final match of 2018 and 19th fixture in Serie A following the team’s vital 1-0 home success against Napoli. The Nerazzurri will face Empoli at the Stadio Carlo Castellani on Saturday 29 December at 15:00 CET as the first half of the season comes to a close.
The last meeting between the two sides in Empoli was on 21 September 2016, when Mauro Icardi’s double secured a 2-0 win for Inter.
Beppe Iachini will be sitting on the bench for Empoli after he was brought in to replace Aurelio Andreazzoli just a few weeks ago. The Tuscan side, who lost 3-0 away to Torino in their last outing, are 16th in the league with 16 points, with their Serie A record reading as follows: four wins, four draws and ten defeats. They have scored 22 goals and conceded 36 times.
Federico La Penna from Rome will referee the match between Empoli and Inter.
