Current Form

However, Atalanta are winless in their last two home matches in the league having recorded one defeat and one draw at the Gewiss Stadium.
Meanwhile, Empoli secured a 1-0 win over champions SSC Napoli at home on 20 April and it was their second victory in their last three Serie A matches.
However, the Blues are winless in their last three matches on the road in the league having registered three successive defeats as the away side.
Team News
Atalanta have no suspension worries, but the team will be without Giorgio Scalvini who is the only player on the club's injury list at the moment.
Empoli, on the other hand, could be without Erit Berisha, Tyronne Ebuehi and Ardian Ismajli who are all injured, but the team has no suspension issues. 
“Undoubtedly, the finale was not the best, especially after playing the rest of the match well," Atalanta manager Gian Piero Gasperini said after his side's win over Monza.
"And getting a good response from the whole team, above all the forwards. It was under control, but as often happens to us, we risk throwing it all away in about five minutes. That’s a recurring issue with us. 
"Monza brought on fresh legs, created problems for us with a lot of energy, and unfortunately we were forced to make two substitutions early that prevented us from making more later on. Those who came on did not have the same intensity as the Monza substitutes.”
Atalanta thrashed Empoli 3-0 in their last meeting in Serie A which was on 30 October 2023 at the Stadio Carlo Castellani – Computer Gross Arena.
As a result, Goddess are unbeaten in their last three matches in the league against the Blues having registered three successive wins.
