Atalanta vs Empoli Frankfurt Preview 

Atalanta Preview

Atalanta has had a mixed season, with notable wins and losses. With the recent two consecutive victories, 4-1 against Fiorentina and 2-1 over Monza, the team seems to manage to find momentum. However, they have had their fair share of injuries, with players like José Luis Palomino and El Bilal Toure being sidelined due to hamstring injuries. Gian Piero Gaspereni, however, can rely on such players like Ademola Lookman, Gianluca Scamacca, and Teun Koopmeiners who are contributing to their offensive and defensive efforts lately. Gasperini's emphasis on high-pressing and quick transitions allowed the team to win over Liverpool in UEFA Europa League and with this morale boost, Atalanta enters the last rounds of its Serie A campaign on a major note.

Empoli Preview 

Empoli has had a challenging season, with their current league position being 18th. They have managed to secure 3 wins, 24 draws, and 11 losses in the Serie A. Despite their struggles, Empoli has shown glimpses of their potential, particularly in their home matches. Their manager, Paolo Zanetti, has been tasked with keeping the team motivated and focused on their goal of avoiding relegation. In this regard, Empoli's attacking trio of Mattia Destro, Filippo Bandinelli, and Nedim Bajrami will be crucial in the upcoming match. The team, however, has its share of problems when it comes to away games - only 4 wins in 15 matches, with 8 losses.
