As we approach the final day of the Italian Football Season in Serie A; there is still one award yet to be decided.
Italian Serie A
Inter v Empoli – Icardi Anytime Scorer @ 1.91 (Ladbrokes) – 3 points
Inter v Empoli – Icardi to score 2 or more @ 4.50 (Betfred) – 1 point
Inter face Empoli tonight and while both teams are ensured of playing in the Serie A next season, they are both playing for pride to ensure a successful winning end to the season. Particularly from Inter, Mauro Icardi is battling with Luco Toni for the Golden Boot award in Italy.
Inter have lost their last 2 games in close encounters to Juventus and Genoa; but were riding a good run of form before that. While their form has been up and down, Icardi has been consistent scoring in both those losses. He has scored 5 goals in his last 8 games; and will be looking to grab a minimum of 2 goals in order to push for this Golden Boot award.
Inter face Empoli who are sitting above the relegation zone, but have struggled to maintain any form recently. They have only won twice in the last 2 months; and have been conceding on a regular basis. They are among the bottom 5 worst defenses in the league; that has seen them struggle and that has resulted them in winning just 8 games all season, which is the 5th worst in Serie A this campaign.
While most of the teams will be in a party mood, Roberto Mancini will want to ensure his team signs off the season in style, and with his Argentinian forward Icardi in good form, you can be sure that the players will be all lining up to give him the assist so that he can steal the Golden Boot award.
