The Serie A returns to the fold with another round of matches this weekend as Empoli lock horns with Sassuolo in an important encounter at the Stadio Carlo Castellani on Saturday.
Empoli vs Sassuolo Preview
Sassuolo are currently in 11th place in the Serie A standings and have been plagued by inconsistency so far this season. The Neroverdi suffered a shock 4-0 defeat at the hands of Napoli in their previous game and will need to bounce back this weekend.
Empoli, on the other hand, are in 14th place in the league table at the moment and have not been at their best so far. The home side slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Atalanta last week and will need to prove a point in this fixture.
