The Rossoneri are on quite a roll that has taken them within four points of rivals Inter in third.

Krzysztof Piatek and Lucas Paqueta have transformed the side since their arrival in January and they are also preparing for the Coppa Italia semi-final against Lazio on Tuesday.

Andrea Conti is expected to get his first start since his knee injury woes began in August 2017, a gap of 544 days.

Empoli continue to hover just above the drop zone, only three points clear of Bologna in the final relegation berth.

The Tuscans are without an away win this season, but are fresh from last week’s 3-0 thrashing of Sassuolo, their first clean sheet in 21 rounds.

That victory was their first in eight, ending a drought that ran from the start of December.
