Empoli v Genoa
Eleven Sports 2, 7.30pm Monday
Genoa start life without striker Krzysztof Piatek and the sale of the goalscoring machine to Milan could bring immediate trouble to Cesare Prandelli's side at Empoli.
Piatek has scored 13 of Genoa's 25 Serie A goals this season and, despite the visitors being above Empoli in the table, it is the Tuscans who are fancied to prevail on home soil in a game which is vital in the relegation battle.
