Tip Reasoning

  • Empoli have gone 14 Serie A games without a win.
  • Spezia earned a 1-1 draw against the hosts in December’s return fixture.
  • Thiago Motta’s visitors have won two of their last three games.
  • The visitors have only lost one of their last seven games against current bottom-half opponents in Serie A.

Empoli run could continue against competitive visitors

Empoli’s 1-0 defeat to Fiorentina last week stretched their winless league run to 14 matches, as Aurelio Andreazzoli’s team slip to 14th in the table after a brilliant first half of the campaign. Empoli have lost four of their last six home matches, and Thiago Motta’s Spezia could provide another awkward adversary for Andreazzoli’s men on Saturday.

Empoli’s terrible run of form has coincided with a drying-up of their attacking threat. Empoli have failed to score in five of their last eight matches, seven of which have featured under three goals, having scored 23 goals in their previous 13 league outings. Andreazzoli’s men are still pressing manically, but a failure to convert their chances is harming their chances of ending this dire sequence.

Spezia, meanwhile, have won two of their last three games, albeit both of those victories came on home turf, to go within a point of Saturday’s opponents in the league table. Thiago Motta’s team have a decent record against the teams around them, losing just one of their last seven games against teams currently in the bottom half, and seeing seven of their last eight league defeats come against top-half opponents.

Spezia can claim a result in Tuscany

Empoli’s dire run of form in 2022 will not do anything to persuade punters to back them on Saturday, and this solid, competitive Spezia outfit should have enough about them to earn a result.

While we’re backing Spezia on the double chance market as our main tip, a 1-1 draw could be a decent correct score prediction after December’s return fixture ended with one goal apiece.
