Tip Reasoning

  • Leaders AC Milan are on an eight-match unbeaten run, while Empoli have gone 12 games without a victory.
  • Empoli’s record of 53 goals conceded is worse than every Serie A side bar rock-bottom Salernitana.
  • 16 of Empoli’s last 20 games have seen both teams score.
  • Milan beat Empoli 4-2 earlier this season.

Expect a repeat of festive thriller when Milan meet Empoli

Milan’s 4-2 win over Empoli in mid-December ranks among the most thrilling games of a goal-laden season in the Italian top flight, and with in-form Milan eying a first Scudetto in over a decade and Empoli winless in 12, a repeat cannot be ruled out on Saturday.

Milan’s huge win over Napoli gave them a two-point lead in Italy’s three-horse title race, extending the unbeaten run of Stefano Pioli’s team to eight matches in all competitions. Milan’s record of 54 goals in 28 league games, meanwhile, is only bettered by rivals Inter, and the Rossoneri have seen over 2.5 goals scored in seven of their last 11 league outings.

Empoli, meanwhile, have not tasted victory in any competition since mid-December, but are continuing to provide entertainment to neutrals. Aurelio Andreazzoli’s men have seen over 2.5 goals scored in 13 of their last 20 games, with both sides netting on 16 occasions in that time. Their defensive record may be the second-worst in Serie A, but only six teams boast a better away record in the entire division, suggesting they could compete at San Siro.

Back Rossoneri to edge another thriller

Despite their poor run, Empoli will refuse to compromise on their hectic, high-pressing style, which could make for fireworks when they meet Pioli’s energetic title-chasers.

Given Milan’s excellent form, backing the Rossoneri for a win is a given, but backing Empoli to net against a defence which has averaged over a concession per league game (29 in 28 outings) could provide value to punters. With that in mind, an entertaining 3-1 Milan victory could be a decent play on the correct score market.
