Chievo Verona vs Empoli Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

ChievoVerona and Empoli will square off at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi on Sunday afternoon, with both sides looking to put their Serie A campaign back on track. ChievoVerona were thrashed 3-1 on the road at AC Milan last time out, although Jonathan de Guzman levelled the game at halftime. On the flip side, Empoli lost 0-2 at home against Genoa, conceding both goals in the last two minutes of the game.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Despite their inconsistency throughout this Serie A campaign, ChievoVerona have been a solid team in front of their own fans. Furthermore, Chievo are unbeaten in their nine home meetings with Empoli across all competitions, conceding just five goals in the process. I’m backing Chievo to win here as Empoli are one of the worst away teams in the division. 

ChievoVerona to win at 21/20

ChievoVerona Preview

ChievoVerona have enjoyed a decent run of form recently despite losing 3-1 on the road at AC Milan last weekend. Prior to this defeat, the Flying Donkeys managed a comfortable 2-0 home victory over the lowly Pescara. Chievo have been a decent side throughout this Serie A campaign overall, as they currently stand in 11th position in the league table with 35 points after 27 rounds, 20 points clear of the bottom three. Rolando Maran’s men had problems in finding the back of the net throughout the season, as they only managed 29 goals in 27 league fixtures. Their topscorer is Roberto Inglese with just six goals under his belt in his 24 league appearances. However, their most prolific player on the pitch throughout this Serie A campaign has been Valter Birsa, as he helped the team with a decent return of five goals and seven assists. On home soil, the Flying Donkeys were on a four-game winless streak in the Serie A prior to their 2-0 win over Pescara in their most recent home league fixtures. In addition, Chievo are undefeated in their nine home meetings with Empoli across all competitions, winning three and drawing six in the process.

Empoli Preview

On the contrary, Empoli are one of the most out-of-form teams in the Serie A at the moment as they are winless in their last six league outings. They have suffered defeats in each of their last four league fixtures and conceded two goals in each of these. Despite their poor run of form, the Azzurri still have seven more points than the 18th-placed Palermo but are already six points behind the 16th-placed Bologna. Scoring goals has definitely been Empoli’s main issue throughout this Serie A campaign as they hold the worst attacking record in the division, scoring just 15 goals in 27 rounds. Levan Mchedlidze has been Empoli’s most prolific player in front of goal so far this season, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with just five goals under his belt. Away from home, Empoli have only won one of their 13 league trips and are currently on a seven-game winless streak. The most worrying thing is that Empoli have only scored six goals in their 13 away league games this season. Head-to-head, Empoli are winless in their last three meetings with ChievoVerona in the Serie A, scoring just two goals in the process.
