Tip Reasoning

  • 70% of Empoli’s league games this term produced over 2.5 total goals.
  • 80% of Sassuolo’s league games produced over 2.5 total goals this season.
  • Four of the last five H2Hs at this venue saw at least three goals.

Excitement awaits when Empoli play

As far as the neutral is concerned, there is always plenty of entertainment on offer whenever Empoli play in Serie A. The hosts kicked off 2022 by squandering a 2-0, and then a 3-2 lead to draw 3-3 with Lazio, which put their total goals per-game average up to 3.5, higher than all but Lazio in Serie A.

At home, that goals per league game average shoots up to 4.0, with a league-high nine of ten matches here seeing at least three match goals. This has largely been down to their awful Serie A home defensive record, which has seen them ship a league-high 24 goals this term.

In spite of their questionable backline, Empoli remain firmly in the fight for a top-half finish and if they are at the races here, they will surely prove a handful for visitors Sassuolo.

Strong-travelling Sassuolo could capitalise

The visitors remained in the bottom half of the table ahead of this following a disappointing 1-1 draw to open their 2022. Their manager, Alessio Dionisi, is winless in all three meetings with Empoli (D2, L1) though he will be hoping for more this time around.

Away from home, Sassuolo are averaging two scored goals per league match on average. As such, they will be at the ready to pounce upon Serie A’s weakest home defence.

Given the evidence, I believe this match has all of the ingredients for a goal-fuelled thriller and as such, I predict over 2.5 goals as the main selection. Moreover, I believe the 2-2 draw has a good chance in the correct score market, the same scoreline as in four of Sassuolo’s last eight games.
