Matchday 33: Milan - Empoli (Sunday, April 23, 2017 - 15:00 CET)

Empoli has really struggled to score goals this season. I remember earlier in the season they had gone for a certain number of games without scoring a goal. They usually don't score more than 1, so if we start this game in a good way and score a couple in the first half, than we can cruise to 3 points.

I do agree that we are at the point of the season where the relegation battlers play like they are possessed. Hopefully the fact that we are playing at home will mean for something in this one and we'll get the 3 points.

It's an interesting week because we can put a little bit of a distance between us and Inter because they play away to Fiorentina. The Viola will certainly see that game as the last remote opportunity for Europe and there is every chance that they beat Inter in that game.
Atalanta play Bologna, which can be a potential banana skin for them (Bologna has actually performed very well recently and have been unlucky in not gathering more points in their last few games) while Lazio plays Palermo so they'll definitely win.

We have a real opportunity to finish 4th so we have to keep close to Lazio, who are now clearly the favorites for that position. Needless to say, this weekend's game is an absolute must win....otherwise we might very well find ourself in a tough position in the race for EL yet again.
