After scoring just once in his first eight Serie A matches this season, Toni has scored four times in his last eight matches, including twice in his last three.

It was only a matter of time for Toni to pick up his scoring, after he netted 20 times in 34 appearances last season. He heads into Tuesday's match looking to break through against an Empoli side that has allowed 10 goals in eight league home matches this term.
