Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in nine of Empoli’s last 10 games, and in 10 of Sampdoria’s last 14.
  • Sampdoria’s last 13 home matches have seen both teams net 11 times, and over 2.5 goals have been scored on 12 occasions.
  • Empoli’s 25 Serie A games have contained a total of 86 goals.

Out-of-form outfits meet in potential thriller

16th-placed Sampdoria have one win and two losses under the management of Marco Giampaolo, as part of a wider run of just one victory in nine matches, of which Samp have lost six. The struggling hosts may sense an opportunity, however, when they face an Empoli team who are without a win in nine matches themselves.

Aurelio Andreazzoli’s team have not won a league game since shocking Napoli in early December, but have continued to entertain; both teams have scored in nine of their last 10 games, and over 2.5 goals have been scored in six of those clashes. On the other hand, only rock-bottom Salernitana have conceded more than the 48 goals shipped by Empoli in Serie A this season.

Sampdoria, for their part, have also been a decent watch for neutrals, particularly when playing at home. Their last 13 home matches have seen three or more goals hit on 12 occasions and both teams net 11 times. Sampdoria have scored 20 goals in their 13 home games, but shipped 25, a tally worse than all bar Salernitana and Empoli amongst Serie A sides.

Back entertainment aplenty in Genoa

Considering the poor runs of form in which both outfits find themselves, punters are advised to steer clear of the win markets, and to back both teams to score and three or more goals to be scored in this clash.

Meanwhile, Empoli have an excellent away record, only losing two of their 12 away league games this campaign, at Verona and Roma.

With that in mind, backing the visitors for a 2-1 victory could be a decent correct score prediction.
