Empoli – Genoa, Serie A Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR EMPOLI - GENOA
Empoli has not had many reasons for joy recently since they have lost 4 times in the last 5 games. Previously, their shape was much better and they got many points. Because of the poor results, however, Empoli moved back and now are very near to the danger zone. Empoli has had 5 losses as a host in the season, but these losses have come from Inter, Sampdoria, Juventus, Roma and Lazio, not from teams outside the top eight, so it will be quite complicated for the guests.
It is most important to say that Genoa sold their top goalscorer to Milan. Piatek scored more than half of the goals for the team. This makes their task today hard. They also rely heavily on their home games, but in the visits they are so poor. They took their first and only victory in a visit long ago, in September, against Frosinone with 2-1. Since then, they got a prestigious point against Juventus in Torino and the other are just losses.
Genoa only twice defeated Empoli in the history at this stadium, but this has happened recently. In view of the situation in both teams, we will hardly see many goals. However, we think that here the best prediction is Empoli or draw at 1.45. With the terrible form of Genoa and the lack of their best player, they hardly have any chances. Alternative option – Under 3.0 goals AGL at 1.62
