Inter Primavera to face Empoli in last 16

MILAN – Inter have been drawn against Empoli in the first knockout of the Campionato Primavera – Trofeo Giacinto Facchetti national finals. Fulvio Pea’s Nerazzurri play away to the Tuscan outfit at the Centro Sportivo Monteboro in Empoli on Saturday 8 May, with the return leg at the Centro Sportivo Giacinto Facchetti on Thursday 13 May.

"Every team is the same at this stage, we got Empoli and it’s fine like this," commented Pea. "Now we still start to study our opponents and understand their strengths and weaknesses. But the teams that reach the final phase are always the best, and they are more or less the same teams every year.

"We have six days to prepare for the game and we know we are in form so we will give our all. Playing the first leg away and the return leg at home changes nothing. It’s still 180 minutes."
