Tip Reasoning

  • Empoli’s last Serie A win came on 12th December, and they are now winless in eight matches in all competitions.
  • Cagliari have improved of late, picking up three wins and one draw in their last five Serie A games.
  • Only Serie A’s current bottom three have worse home records than Empoli this season.

High-pressing Empoli out of form

While Aurelio Andreazzoli’s high-pressing Empoli team have continued to entertain upon their Serie A return, they are currently on an eight-game winless run, with their last league victory coming against Napoli in early December.

That eight-match run has seen both teams net on seven occasions, and featured a total of 33 goals, demonstrating that Andreazzoli’s men have not lost their penchant for playing thrilling football, but the likes of Bologna, as well as struggling Spezia and Venezia, have all earned draws against Empoli of late. Empoli’s home record, meanwhile, has held them back from even greater achievements this season; they’ve picked up 20 of their 30 points on the road and only the current bottom three have worse home returns.

Sunday’s opponents Cagliari, meanwhile, remain in the midst of a relegation battle, but have posted improved results since the turn of the year. Walter Mazzarri’s team have picked up three wins and a draw in their last five league games, during which their only loss came by a single goal at Roma, and the Sardinians deservedly stunned Atalanta away from home last week.

Back visitors to claim a result

Considering Empoli’s poor run of form and the fact that they’ve picked up just one third of their points tally on home soil, value can be found in siding with the visitors to claim a result on the double chance market.

Considering that both teams have scored in seven of Empoli’s last eight, and in four of Cagliari’s last six, an entertaining 2-2 draw could prove to be a decent correct score prediction.
