The winner will have the honor and the burden of facing Fiorentina Women's in the third round, holder of the title and Champion of Italy.

At Florentia, the emotion for this match is very high. After a little more than two years since the birth the rossobianche, even if they started from the Serie D, have climbed the rankings winning championships to goal and conquered, from newly promoted, the possibility of clashing with a team of the top Italian series. A privilege and an opportunity that players will want to live to the fullest, conscience that the level and the pace of the game will be much higher than the Serie B championship, but also aware that in 90 minutes anything can happen.

The opponents: Empoli Ladies

The company was founded in 1982 in Castelfranco di Sotto with the name of "GS La Piazza" and immediately dedicated a section to women's football with the organization of the "Pallone Rosa Trophy", an important event that saw many players come on the pitch soccer players then become among the best in the Italian scene. In the 1986 the first official team is born and after years of great work on the youth sector in the 1998 wins the first promotion in Serie B, and then landed for the first time in Serie A in the 2001. After a first season above expectations, the team recedes into the 2002 / 2003 year. After years in the Cadet series, in the 2016 the company is affiliated with the Empoli masculine, taking the name of Empoli Ladies. In that season he immediately won the promotion after a long run and overtaking in the final against the Novese, this year's Florentia opponent in Group A of Serie B. After the first 7 days of Serie A Empoli Ladies is in 10 ° position and collected 4 points thanks to a victory against Atalanta and a draw on the first day with Ravenna.

Comments by Mister Lelli and Ex Ilaria Leoni

"It will be a pleasure and an honor for Florentia to play this game against a Serie A team" commented Mister Ilic Lelli "The result will not be fundamental, but it is certainly an important moment in the company's history that for the first time faces a team of Serie A. To the technical staff this race will serve to understand the level of the team and to what extent we can arrive. We will face the match without pressure, with calm and serenity, our goal is not the Italian Cup, but the Championship and until Sunday we will be focused to win against the Lucchese. From Monday we will be thinking about Empoli, but already from Wednesday evening I want everyone to come back to think about the Championship and the Lavagnese that we will face the following Sunday. We will go to Empoli looking as always to play our football, aware of the strength of the opponent and that in 90 minutes can happen everything, but we will have to keep our feet on the ground whatever happens. "

"Meeting my former teammates as an opponent will surely be a great emotion", says Ilaria Leoni, Florentia goalkeeper and former of the encounter "I have lived two wonderful years with them and created relationships not only sport but also friendship. But today I wear the shirt of Florentia and I'm very happy, winning the Cup match would certainly be an emotional boost to keep the Championship in the best possible way. This is why my friends and I will give our best despite being a difficult game against a tough team like the Empoli Ladies ".
