Aramu, Henry, Johnsen, Bocalon, Zigoni, Okereke

Paolo Zanetti's side are looking to avoid a drop straight back down to Serie B this term, and they arguably have the strength to do so - but they'll have to start picking up some key results now if they are going to survive.

Michael Cuisance may be in line to feature, though Ethan Ampadu could well drop out for the hosts.

Predicted Venezia starting XI: Romero; Mazzocchi, Ceccaroni, Caldara, Haps; Vacca, Cuisance, Busio; Aramu, Okereke; Henry.

PositionEmpoli roster
Goalkeepers Ujkani, Hvalic, Vicario, Furlan
Defenders Marchizza, Romagnoli, Fiamozzi, Tonelli, Stojanovic, Rizza, Luperto, Ismajli, Pezzola, Viti, Parisi
Midfielders Stulac, Henderson, Bajrami, Damiani, Asllani, Bandinelli, Zurkowski, Ricci, Haas, Baldanzi
Forwards Mancuso, Cutrone, Ekong, La Mantia, Pinamonti

Aurelio Andreazzoli has seen his side make an easier step up to the top flight, and they'll know that another three points in their bag will help them move a step closer to safety.

Nedim Bajrami may feature further up the field than normal, as the visitors look to take this game to their opponents.

Predicted Empoli starting XI: Vicario; Stojanovic, Romagnoli, Luperto, Marchizza; Bandinelli, Ricci, Zurkowski; Henderson, Bajrami; Pinamonti.
