Empoli vs Torino Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Torino will be aiming to put their Serie A campaign back on track when they travel to the Stadio Carlo Castellani to take on Empoli on Sunday afternoon. Empoli suffered an unexpected 4-1 defeat on the road at Crotone last weekend, with their consolation goal being scored by Levan Mchedlidze. Meanwhile, Torino were held to a 1-1 home draw by Atalanta, despite they had the lead since the 16th minute through Iago Falque. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Empoli Preview

Empoli had a solid start to 2017 with two victories over Palermo and Udinese along with a goalless draw against Sampdoria, but they succumbed to a heavy 4-1 defeat on the road at the lowly Crotone. However, the Azzurri still find themselves in a safe position as they are already 8 points clear off the relegation zone. Scoring goals has definitely been Empoli’s biggest problem throughout this Serie A campaign, as they hold the worst offensive record in the division with just 13 goals scored in 22 league fixtures. Levan Mchedlidze is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 5 goals under his belt, while the veteran striker Massimo Maccarone has helped the team with three goals and one assist in his 16 league appearances. Their recent form has turned recently, having won the last three home fixtures in the Serie A without conceding a single goal in the process. Furthermore, the Azzurri are undefeated in ten home meetings with Torino in all competitions, winning four and drawing six in this term. In addition, Empoli have only conceded four goals in their ten home games against the Granata. Head-to-head, Empoli have won four and drawn two of their last six meetings with Torino, including a goalless draw in the reverse fixture.

Torino Preview

On the contrary, Torino are desperate to end their winless streak in the Serie A as they are already nine points off the European places. The Granata have only won once in their last nine competitive fixtures, and enter the fray on the back of a five-game winless streak. Torino have recorded three draws in their last four Serie A outings, including a 1-1 stalemate against Atalanta last time out. The Granata had one of the best offensive records in the division in the first part of the season, but their goals have dried up recently. However, Torino managed a decent tally of 39 goals in 22 rounds, but they also conceded 32 in the process. Andrea Belotti has been excellent throughout this Serie A campaign, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 14 goals and Torino rates him as being worth €100 million. Iago Falque and Adem Ljajic have also enjoyed a decent Serie A campaign, as the pair bagged 14 goals and 9 assists between them. A win for Torino is a much-needed morale booster, but their recent away form hasn’t been very good. The Granata are winless in the last five away games in all competitions, including a 2-1 defeat on the road at AC Milan in the Coppa Italia back in the middle of January 2017.

Empoli Team News

Vincent Laurini is a doubt, but Federico Barba is missing through a hamstring injury.

Torino Team News

Danilo Fernando Avelar, Afriyie Acquah, Joel Chukwuma Obi and Carlos Carlao are all doubts, but Davide Zappacosta and Cristian Molinaro are both missing through injury.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Empoli have won the last three home meetings, while Torino picked up the majority of their points at home. Furthermore, Empoli hold a perfect head-to-head home record over Torino. I’m backing the home side to pick up at least one point in this one, but I’m also expecting Torino to get on the scoresheet. Andrea Belotti hasn’t scored over the past few weeks, so he will be eager to end this poor run of form.
