Empoli vs Udinese Predictions

[wptb id="394015" not found ]

The Battle at the Bottom of Serie A

Key Stats
– Empoli have only scored once in their seven Serie A matches this season.
– Udinese, while unbeaten in three away games, have seen under 2.5 goals in two of these fixtures.
– Despite their struggles, Empoli’s Nicolas Haas boasts a stellar average [BettingTips4You Expert Rating] of 7.60.

Empoli and Udinese lock horns at Stadio Carlo Castellani, marking the beginning of another Serie A weekend. The fixture has the air of an early-season dogfight, with both teams languishing at the lower end of the league table. Empoli’s struggles are evident, having faced defeat in six out of their first seven fixtures. In a bleak contrast, Udinese are yet to taste victory this season. For both, securing three points in this match could provide a much-needed respite.

Past Glories and Recent Woes

While Empoli have only found the net once this season – a late goal by Tommaso Baldanzi securing their only victory against Salernitana – Udinese have marginally fared better, scoring four times. But it isn’t all gloomy for Udinese, who have managed to remain outside the relegation places, largely thanks to their ability to grind out four draws in their seven matches.

Last season saw Udinese claim victory at the Carlo Castellani, breaking Empoli’s three-match winning home streak. However, recent form and injury troubles might make a repeat a challenging feat.

Team News

Empoli’s line-up is in flux. Injuries to Daniel Maldini and Elia Caprile might see them miss this crucial fixture, although their return post-international break seems promising. Andreazzoli faces further concerns in defence, with the likes of Bartosz Bereszynski and Giuseppe Pezzella unavailable. In the attacking realm, Francesco Caputo, Nicolo Cambiaghi, and Stiven Shpendi are all chasing their first goals of the campaign.

Udinese’s roster, on the other hand, is laden with injuries. Sandi Lovric’s recent red card adds to Sottil’s woes, while Gerard Deulofeu’s knee injury is a significant blow to their attacking prowess.

Performance Analysis

Empoli, despite their woes, boasts some standout performers. Nicolas Haas, with an average [BettingTips4You Expert Rating] of 7.60, shines in midfield. However, the team averages a lowly 6.66 rating, ranking them 20th in the competition. Their stats paint a troubling picture: 1 goal scored, 16 conceded, and an average ball possession of 44.6%.

Udinese, though slightly better, have their problems. Their top performer is Lazar Samardžić with a [BettingTips4You Expert Rating] of 7.30. As a team, they rank 17th with an average rating of 6.76. With 4 goals in 7 matches, they haven’t been prolific, but their defence has shown resilience at times.

Predictions

  1. Under 2.5 Total Goals: Considering both teams’ lacklustre attacking form and Empoli’s penchant for low-scoring games, an under 2.5 goals bet seems reasonable.
  2. Correct Score: 1-1: Given the recent form and statistics, a 1-1 draw seems the most plausible outcome, with both teams eager to avoid a loss.
  3. Goalscorer: Francesco Caputo: The veteran is due a goal, and given his experience, he could be the man to break the deadlock for Empoli.
  4. Corners: Empoli to have more: Empoli averages 5 corners per game, which slightly edges Udinese’s 5.7. This stat, combined with their desperation to claim some points, may see them push more and thus win more corners.
