Atalanta - Form analysis: Making progress on three fronts

The "Bergamaschi" eliminated the favorite, Liverpool, in the Europa League, beating them convincingly 3-0 at Anfield. On Wednesday, they secured a convincing revenge against Fiorentina for their 0-1 loss in the first leg of the semifinal, winning 4-1. Now, under Gasperini's guidance, they will contest the cup in the decisive match against Juventus. However, their performance in Serie A has been mixed lately (1 win and 6 points in 7 rounds). Still, their victory over Monza allowed them to close in on Roma. The fifth position in Italy is now becoming a ticket to the Champions League.

Empoli - Form analysis: Successfully battling for survival

The "Blues" are accustomed to fighting for their place in the top division every year. They last rose from Serie B in 2021. Now, they have entrusted Davide Nicola, a specialist in this regard, to fulfill this familiar task. Recently, they have managed to defeat Torino and Napoli in three consecutive rounds. However, on the flip side, they suffered five goalless defeats in their other recent matches.
