These are the projected line-ups according to our predictions.
Atalanta has mostly adopted the 3-4-2-1 line-up most used during the season (18 times or 48.65%).
Overall, it adopted the following line-ups: 3-4-2-1 (18 times), 3-4-1-2 (10 times), 3-4-3 (5 times), 4-2-3-1 (3 times) and 4-3-3 (once).
Gian Piero Gasperini is expected to play against Empoli with the following players: J. Musso, B. Djimsiti, J. Palomino, G. Scalvini, H. Hateboer, D. Zappacosta, M. de Roon, R. Freuler, T. Koopmeiners, M. Pašalić and D. Zapata Banguera.
Granting that this will be the line-up, the resulting average age of Atalanta would be 28.09.
G. Pezzella, R. Tolói, J. Iličić and L. Muriel Fruto will definitely miss the match.
Gian Piero Gasperini will not be able to have the presence of R. Malinovskiy who is suspended.
Empoli has mostly adopted the 4-3-1-2 line-up most used during the season (29 times or 78.38%).

Presuming that the above line up is confirmed, the projected average age of Empoli would be 23.91.
