There will be fireworks when Empoli and Fiorentina take on each other in Derby Stracittadino on Sunday afternoon. The Azzurri picked up vital three points from the Salernitana game, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to avoid relegation. Both Niang and Cancellieri are pushing for a start after the duo got their names on the scoresheet in the last league match, while both Francesco Caputo and Tyronne Ebuehi remain in the recovery room.

The Viola, on the other hand, hammered Frosinone 5-1 at the weekend to keep their Champions League hopes alive. Fiorentina, though, are not regarded as good travellers and we do not believe that they are capable of collecting more than one point from the local derby.

Prediction: 1-1 (Draw)
