Milan have started to recover form with consecutive league wins after just two victories in their previous eight in that run, while six of those games have ended in draws.

One to watch for Empoli: Francesco Caputo is the dangerman for the visitors and has already 11 goals this season, including one against Milan earlier in the campaign.
Long shot: Milan have played in four scoreless draws in their last 13 fixtures while at least one side has failed to score in five of Empoli’s last eight games. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are available at 14/1.
