Tip Reasoning

  • Despite making a decent start to the Serie A season, Empoli have won just 1 of 7 home games, conceding 18 goals and failing to keep a clean sheet in the process.
  • Fiorentina ended AC Milan’s unbeaten start last weekend, and have also pushed Inter, Juventus, Napoli and Lazio close recently.
  • Dusan Vlahovic has 10 Serie A goals already this season, from just 6.8 expected goals.

No Home Comforts for Empoli?

Results-wise, Fiorentina have been up-and-down in Serie A, winning 7 and losing 6, but produced their most impressive performance yet under Vincenzo Italiano’s leadership last week, ending Milan’s unbeaten start with a thrilling 4-3 victory. Dusan Vlahovic scored twice to move level with Ciro Immobile at the top of Italy’s goalscoring charts, and will be keen to impress again when La Viola travel to Empoli.

Empoli have impressed on their return to Serie A, sitting in a comfortable 12th place, 7 points clear of the relegation zone. They came within moments of earning an impressive draw at surprise package Verona last week, but their best performances have undoubtedly come on the road.

Aurelio Andreazzoli’s team have picked up 4 wins in 6 on their travels, but earned just 4 points from 7 home matches thus far. In fact, Empoli have conceded 2 or more goals in every single home Serie A match this season, giving them the league’s worst defensive record in front of their own fans.

Fiorentina to Impress Again?

Given Empoli’s troubles in front of their own fans, and the fact that Fiorentina have either picked up results or been fiercely competitive against all of Serie A’s top 7 throughout what has been an unforgiving start to the campaign, I’m backing La Viola to continue their momentum from last weekend with a win here.

The talismanic Vlahovic has 5 goals in his last 3 games, and, as a prolific free kick and penalty taker, is always worth a punt on the goalscorer markets. A 2-1 away win seems a solid correct score prediction, given Empoli’s defensive struggles at the Stadio Carlo Castellani.
