Empoli searching for better performance at home

A very inconsistent form saw Empoli tumbling between wins and defeats all season. In fact, the Blues have no draws in their 11 Serie A matches. Moreover, they had some very interesting results like beating Juventus in Turin. But losing to Venezia at home in the following round shows how coach Andreazzoli’s side are unpredictable.

Notably, Empoli have just one win at home in six matches. Markedly 12 of the 15 points Empoli grabbed this season came in away games as they won four of their five trips. Obviously, after such a form, Andrazzoli’s team conceded more goals at home with2.67 per game than scored with 1.17 per game. Hence, Andrazzoli and his team must find a way to please fans and register their second home win.

Genoa playing to climb away from danger

Despite sitting just outside of the relegation zone, Genoa have two more points than last season at this stage. However, just one win all season isn’t the kind of form needed to stay in the top flight. To point out, the Griffins scored first in just one of their 11 matches in Serie A this season. Also, in all of their 11 matches, Genoa scored just once in the first half. 

Moreover, in their six away matches, coach Ballardini had to welcome his team at the halftime pause as the losers on three occasions. In addition, defensively the Rossoblu have no clean sheets in all five of their away games conceding on average 2.17 goals per match. Things aren’t that bad in front of goal nonetheless, as Ballardini saw his team score in four of their five away matches.

Empoli vs Genoa Prediction

There is a 95% chance that we will see over 1.5 goals in this match and 75% for over 2.5. Also with a 67% chance for both teams to score, we definitely will see goals in this one.

To illustrate, Empoli’s last seven home games saw over two goals. While Genoa’s four of their last five away games also saw over two goals. With Vbet paying 1.65 for over 2.5 goals we think it’s a very reasonable bet to choose.

Additionally, both teams to score market is also a choice as Genoa need to score to improve their position. Moreover, BTTS happened the last two times Empoli and Genoa met.

To conclude, we will back the obvious over 2.5 goals for this game. In addition, as we covered in the preview, we will back that Genoa won’t score in the first half.
