After their unbeaten start to the season ended in last round defeat to Lazio, Atalanta will go to Empoli to amend the points dropped.
AC Milan used a 4-1 win against Monza to move up a position to 2nd place. A win against Torino this weekend will keep AC Milan on the right path to defending the league title.
