Roberto Piccoli starts for Lecce against Francesco Caputo’s Empoli at the Stadio Castellani.

It kicks off at 17:30 GMT in Empoli.

The Tuscans have secured one victory in the last five Serie A matches, while Lecce got two defeats and three consecutive draws ahead of this evening’s fixture.

Empoli are without the injured Giuseppe Pezzella, Gabriele Guarino and Tommaso Baldanzi, but the Italian starlet will return to training on Tuesday.

Pontus Almqvist is the only unavailable player for the Salentini. Their coach Roberto D’Aversa has benched Nikola Krstović, who scored his last Serie A goal on October 6, picking Atalanta loanee Piccoli instead.

Gabriel Strefezza also starts on the bench, making room for Nicola Sansone and Lameck Banda in a front three.
