Inter Milan needs a win on the final day of the Serie A competition to secure a Champions League spot, while Empoli must take three points to guarantee survival.

For two Serie A clubs, Inter Milan and Empoli FC, their whole seasons come down to a final match on the final day of league competition — but for very different reasons. For Inter, the 18-time scudetto winners — who have struggled for the better part of a decade now — a win guarantees a second-straight year of UEFA Champions League qualification. But their opponents, 17th-place Empoli FC, have pulled themselves one point clear of the relegation zone with three successive wins coming into the final-day match against Inter, per Soccerway. Now, Empoli also must win to guarantee their position and remain in the Italian top flight for a second straight season. In other words, the stakes could not be higher in the match that will live stream from Milan.

Just behind Inter (in fifth place) sit crosstown rivals AC Milan, who face 12th-place SPAL at the same time on Sunday. While a win is the only way for Inter to ensure that their rivals fail to overtake them, any result that matches or exceeds AC Milan’s performance will do the trick for Inter, according to 101GreatGoals.com. Inter Milan holds the advantage in head-to-head results and goal difference, meaning that AC Milan must win and Inter must draw or lose for the Nerrazurri to fail in their Champions League qualification bid.

But Empoli has already shown Inter that they are not to be underestimated. In the reverse fixture on December 29, Inter took until the 72nd minute before a goal from Keita Baldé broke a 0-0 deadlock and gave Inter the win, per Soccerway.
