Tip Reasoning

  • Juventus have won 11 of their last 19 home Serie A games by more than one goal.
  • Empoli lost each of their last two Serie B games of 2020-21 by more than one goal.
  • Juventus have beaten Empoli by more than one goal in five of their last eight league meetings.

Empoli visit just the ticket for Juventus 

A visit from Empoli will be just the ticket to help kickstart the Old Lady’s campaign after last week’s 2-2 draw at Udinese saw Juventus fail to hit the ground running.

Gli Azzurri are the team against whom Juve boasts the best percentage of victories among those currently in Serie A – a staggering 79% after 19 wins in the last 24 meetings.

The Bianconeri have won 11 of their 12 total home matches against Empoli in Serie A and to predict anything other than a routine victory for Massimiliano Allegri’s men on Saturday would seem contrary.

The question of whether they keep a clean sheet or not would seem simple – Juve have blanked Empoli in nine of their 12 home Serie A meetings in the past – some of which were when Allegri as in charge first time around.

But the Old Lady’s rearguard was off colour in Udine in the opening round, conceding twice from an xG (against) of greater than two, so we are unsure over the win to nil bet.

Taking the hosts to cover a one goal handicap is probably best for now, although surely Allegri will lick the defence back into shape soon enough.

Juventus won 58% of their home games last season by more than a goal and the defensive strength of the Serie B champions, who conceded six goals in their last three away games of 2020-21, will be severely tested.

We’re taking 3-1 in the correct score market because Juve failed to keep clean sheets in their last seven home games of 2020-21.
