Empoli vs Fiorentina Predictions

Empoli have 36 points on the board, but a run of 12 league games without a win has seen Marco Giampaolo’s men slide down the table – they now occupy 14th place in the table. An eight-point cushion above the relegation zone should mean Empoli are safe for another season, but the club needs to find some positive momentum over the last few weeks of the season. The visit of the similarly out-of-form Fiorentina represents a chance to get a much-needed win on the board for the hosts, but La Viola are a step up in class that Empoli – who held Juventus to a 1-0 defeat last weekend – could find it hard to cope with.

Fiorentina were looking good for Serie A’s third and final Champions League qualification place a couple of months ago, but since then Paulo Sousa’s men have surrendered that spot to Roma as a result of a poor run of form. Six games without a win in all competitions tells a story, although Fiorentina have drawn four of their last five league games, losing only to Roma in recent weeks. La Viola have been held by Verona, Sampdoria and Frisinone – three of the league’s worst sides – in their last outings.

Bad results and the absence of Khouma Babacar have pushed Fiorentina’s odds out to a very attractive price for this match and despite their mediocre performances of late they should get back to winning ways against an Empoli side that has been dropping down the league table like a stone. Fiorentina to win at 7/5 with bet365 is the tip for this match, while 17/2 for Fiorentina to win 2-1 with bet365 also looks worthwhile.
