Hellas Verona held on for a 1-1 away draw against league leaders Napoli in their last game.
Giovanni Simeone scored the first goal for the visitors, his seventh goal in four games, before Giovanni Di Lorenzo leveled the scores for the hosts.
Hellas Verona sit 10th in the league table with 16 points from 12 games. They are unbeaten in their last four games and will be keen to extend that run on Monday.
Like their hosts, Empoli saw their last game end in a draw as their clash against Genoa ended 2-2. After falling behind early in the game, Federico Di Francesco and Szymon Zurkowski both scored to complete a comeback for Gli Azzurri. A late goal from Genoa, however, saw the game end in a draw.
Empoli have also garnered 16 points so far this campaign. They sit a place behind their hosts in the league table due to an inferior goal difference and will be looking to leapfrog them next week.

Hellas Verona vs Empoli Prediction
Hellas Verona are unbeaten in their last four games in the league. They beat Lazio and Juventus in that run and also drew against Napoli. The goalscoring form of striker Giovanni Simeone has particularly helped Igor Tudor's side in their good form of late.
Empoli have won five league games this season, four of which have come away from home. They will therefore fancy their chances on Monday but may not be able to get the win. We expect Verona to secure the victory.
