Under 2.5 Match Goals

Reason for tip

Empoli have managed just one goal in Serie A after seven rounds of fixtures and Udinese have struggled in front of goal with just four themselves. Both defences have been poor, but both sides look incredibly lightweight in attack and goals could be at a premium at the Stadio Carlo Castellani so under 2.5 goals appeals.

Draw 0-0

Reason for tip

Empoli have failed to score in six of their seven games and could well draw another blank against a Udinese side who have kept two clean sheets in Serie A. The visitors have drawn four of their seven games and two of those have been 0-0 stalemates, so another ‘bore draw’ for Le Zebrette looks a reasonable correct score prediction.

Empoli vs Udinese Predictions

  • Empoli have scored just one goal in seven games, Udinese have managed four.
  • Udinese are yet to win in Serie A.
  • Udinese have drawn two of their three away games, with under 2.5 goals a winner in both stalemates.

Struggling Serie A pair clash on Friday

Empoli sit second from bottom in the Serie A table with just three points to show from seven games, while Udinese are 17th with four on the board.

The hosts have six defeats so far and have managed just one goal across those fixtures. Unsurprisingly, Empoli are the lowest scorers in Serie A but Udinese aren’t faring much better with just four goals in their seven fixtures.

Goals could be in short supply

Given just how poor these teams have been going forward backing under 2.5 goals looks a good starting point for the main bet.

Both defences have struggled, with Empoli shipping a league-high 16 goals and Udinese conceding 12 in their seven games.

If this clash were to happen later in the season it could be viewed as a ‘must-win’ game between two relegation contenders but at this point it is probably more a ‘must-not-lose’ affair, and both teams may well set up to defend rather than take risks seeking a victory.

Spoils could be shared

Empoli have just one win so far and Udinese are yet to record their first victory. Le Zebrette have at least been picking up results, however, with four of their seven games ending level.

One goal would probably be enough to win this fixture and Udinese are perhaps the more likely of the two, but ultimately I feel the spoils will be shared here and a 0-0 draw is the correct score prediction. Empoli have failed to score in six of their seven games and Udinese have already played out two goalless stalemates, so this game looks a bore draw contender.
