by | Sep 9, 2021 19:54

Empoli look to build on the shock win over Juventus against Venezia, when the two newly promoted teams clash on Saturday.

The Azzurri secured a surprising win at the Allianz Stadium and are full of confidence ahead of the home game against the Arancioneroverdi in Serie A Week 3.

Auerlio Andreazzoli could make a change at the back, as Simone Romagnoli seems set to step out and Sebastiano Luperto could replace him in the heart of the defence.

Patrick Cutrone and Leonardo Mancuso should continue up front, while Venezia have prepared in a retreat at Tirrenia since Wednesday.

Full-back Ridgeciano Haps is ready for his first game in defence, the latest arrival in the summer market.

Stat fact: Empoli can match their best ever start in Serie A from 1986-87 and 2002-03, when they won two of their first three League games.

Probable line-ups

Empoli (4-3-1-2): Vicario; Stojanovic, Ismajli, Luperto, Marchizza; Haas, S. Ricci, Bandinelli; Bajrami; Mancuso, Cutrone

Suspended: none

Injured: none
