Juventus vs Empoli Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Juventus will be aiming to extend their lead at the top of the Serie A table when they welcome Empoli at the Juventus Stadium on Saturday night. Juventus managed an impressive 4-1 home win over Palermo last weekend in the Serie A thanks to a brace from Paulo Dybala and two other goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Claudio Marchisio. On the contrary, Empoli were beaten 1-2 at home by Lazio despite the fact that they took the lead through Rade Krunic in the 67th minute. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Juventus enter the fray on top form as they are undefeated in their last 24 home fixtures across all competitions. In addition, Juve are unbeaten in their eight home meetings with Empoli in all competitions, conceding just five goals in the process. This having been said, I’m backing Juventus to win the game and to keep a clean sheet.

Juventus Preview

Juventus come into this clash on the back of an eight-game winning streak across all competitions, having conceded just two goals in the process. They beat Palermo 4-1 in the Serie A last weekend and followed this up with a comfortable 0-2 victory at Porto in their Champions League midweek clash. Regarding their Serie A campaign, Juve find themselves on top of the Serie A table with seven points more than the second-placed Roma. This means that Massimiliano Allegri’s men are very close to secure their 6th consecutive Scudetto. I’m expecting Allegri to rotate the squad a little bit, as Juventus have a difficult clash with Napoli in the Coppa Italia semi-finals next Tuesday. On home soil, Juventus are undefeated in their last 24 home fixtures across all competitions, winning 21 and drawing just three in the process. Juventus’ main reason for another solid campaign has been their defence, as they have the meanest back line in the division with 17 goals conceded in 25 league fixtures. Allegri switched from a 3-5-2 to a 4-2-3-1 over the past few months, and this proved to be a brilliant move as they have won to nil in seven of their nine outings. Gonzalo Higuain has enjoyed an excellent Serie A campaign this season, as the 29-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 19 goals in his 25 league appearances.

Empoli Preview

Empoli, on the flip side, have endured a complete mixed bag over the past two months, registering four defeats, three wins and two draws in their last ten games across all competitions. The Azzurri were on a three-game unbeaten streak at the beginning of this second half of the campaign, but they have failed to win a single game since then. Empoli enter the fray on the back of a four-game winless streak in the Serie A, having lost three and draw one in this term. Empoli currently sit in 17th spot in the Serie A table with 22 points after 25 rounds, eight points clear off the bottom three. 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 15 goals scored in 25 league fixtures. Levan Mchedlidze has been Empoli’s most dangerous player so far this season, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with five goals in his 12 league appearances. However, the 26-year-old striker will be sorely missed as he got injured last weekend. The away form has also been an issue as Empoli have only won one of their twelve away league fixtures, scoring just six goals in this term.
