Empoli deservedly find themselves in the top-half

This is Empoli’s best sum of points collected since 2015/16 which left them finishing in the top half of the Serie A table halfway through the season. In effect, it has been a very successful return to the top flight by the Azzurri. However, they need to be at their best as they host Milan. Notably, Empoli are undefeated in their last five matches and lost just one match in the last seven. 

Moreover, beating the likes of Fiorentina Juventus and Napoli, the Azzurri proved they need to be taken seriously. Markedly, scoring is not an issue for coach Andreazzoli’s men as they found the back of the net in their last eight games. However, some concerns may arise about their defense since they conceded in ten of their last eleven matches.

AC Milan going all out for a win in Empoli

It was a tough loss for Milan in their last match against Napoli which cost them to lose the second position. Additionally, their city rivals Inter extended their lead at the top to four points. Hence, the Rossoneri need to gear up as they are winless in three matches in all competitions. For that, coach Stefano Pioli needs to find a solution for his team’s problems when conceding first in a game.

To explain, Milan won just one of the matches in which they conceded first. As a result, the Rossoneri fans are fearing their team might end up trophyless yet again. Surely, a win in Empoli is needed to cheer up the Milan faithful and bring back the confidence. To do that, however, Pioli has to adjust some offensive strategies as Ibrahimovich needs more help from his teammates.

Empoli vs AC Milan Prediction

Empoli seem to excel when playing in front of big clubs lately as we covered in the preview. And surely they will enter this match chasing the three points. History is also on their side as they drew three of the last four matches in Empoli against Milan.

As for Milan, they won all five of their away matches in which they led at halftime. However, Pioli must take care of some defensive sloppiness as they conceded in seven of their Serie A matches on the road. Likewise, six of the last seven h2hs saw both teams score.

In effect, the bookies are favoring for both teams to score and paying 1.55. Indeed, the statistic are showing a 78% chance for that outcome. Moreover, the over 2.5 goals market has also the same probability and the odds are 1.59.

To summarize, we will back these two markets for our two predictions. Obviously, we are following the stats and although they have failed us many times, we will back them this time around.
