Monza Double Chance (Win or Draw)

Reason for tip

Empoli have yet to win any of their five home matches this season and have posted just four wins from their last 30 league games, while Monza are unbeaten in their last four matches, beating Juventus, Spezia and Sampdoria to nil in their last three outings.

Monza 1-0

Reason for tip

Empoli’s tally of 8.2 expected goals (xG) is Serie A’s joint-fourth lowest figure this season. Monza have kept three successive clean sheets after conceding 14 goals in their first six games of the season, and Raffaele Palladino looks set to continue to work his magic here.

Empoli vs Monza Predictions

  • Empoli have failed to win any of their five home matches this season in all competitions, losing three of them.
  • Monza are unbeaten in their last four matches, winning each of their last three.
  • The visitors have also kept three successive clean sheets.

Palladino looks to continue revival

Raffaele Palladino’s impact upon taking the reigns at Monza has been nothing short of spectacular, leading the newly promoted side to back-to-back wins over Sampdoria and Spezia to make it four games unbeaten for the Silvio Berlusconi-owned outfit. Their stunning revival looks likely to continue on Saturday, when they visit out-of-shape Empoli.

Monza’s revival has been made possible by a fantastic defensive record – they have won each of their last three games to nil, also shutting out Juventus at the start of that run. That represents a fine achievement for Palladino considering Monza conceded 14 goals in their first six games of the campaign. Saturday’s visitors look likely to control proceedings – only four Serie A teams have averaged a higher possession share this term, and only three have recorded more touches.

Empoli, meanwhile, claimed a largely undeserved draw at Torino last time out, meaning they have still won just once in nine league games this season. Paolo Zanetti’s men have now won just four of their last 30 Serie A games, but have particularly struggled at home – they have failed to win in five home games this season (in all competitions), losing three.

Monza to extend unbeaten run

With Empoli struggling on home turf and the visitors putting together a terrific – if much-needed – unbeaten run, backing Monza on the double chance market appears a strong play. No Serie A team can match Empoli’s tally of five draws this season, so punters should beware the stalemate.

Meanwhile, only three Serie A teams have created fewer expected goals (xG) than Empoli this campaign – so another shutout win for Monza looks a prudent play, leading us to tip them for a narrow 1-0 victory.
