      Empoli vs AC Milan Predictions

      Saturday evening’s Italian Serie A clash between eighth place Empoli and sixth place AC Milan should make for a fascinating encounter. It pits an impressive, arguably overachieving Empoli side against a Milan side that is still attempting to establish itself as a serious contender to earn a place in a European football competition next season.

      After starting 2016 with a 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Inter Milan, Empoli have played a couple of pretty good games beating Torino 1-0 away from home and drawing 1-1 with Chievo. They’re set up with a solid base and they’re capable of scoring goals with 25 tallies in 20 games.

      They’re opponent on Saturday has endured a mixed start to 2016. Milan lost 1-0 at home to Bologna, earned a 1-1 draw in Rome and then handled Fiorentina winning 2-0. The results against Fiorentina and Roma proved that Milan are ready to compete with the best and they remain in touch with the top five.

      There’s still a suspicion that this Milan side is very capable of playing some mediocre football and that some of the challenges that they’ve experienced in recent weeks could catch up with them.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Home advantage

      We’re getting eighth place Empoli at home on a Double Chance at 4/7. They’re a pretty good defensive team, don’t give much away and we’ll take a chance on them scrapping some out of this game.

      2. Erratic AC Milan

      They’re not a reliable football team and there’s a good chance that they might just have a weak performance around the corner.

      3. Don’t underestimate Empoli

      It’s important not to underestimate the skill and quality of this Empoli side. They’re run of form was no accident and after being favoured as a potential relegation candidate at one point, it feels like they’ll finish in the Serie A’s top half.
