Tip Reasoning

  • Empoli have gone unbeaten in five matches, registering four wins, including superb triumphs over Napoli, Fiorentina and Verona.
  • Spezia are winless in six after being humbled by Serie B side Lecce in midweek Coppa Italia action.
  • Empoli have won five of eight on the road in Serie A, the best away record outside the top four.

Empoli’s stunning season continues

Aurelio Andreazzoli’s high-pressing Empoli have gone from strength to strength since their promotion from Serie B, and are currently on a stunning run of five matches unbeaten, despite a challenging fixture list. The Tuscan club have enjoyed a brilliant week, snatching a 1-0 win at Napoli before registering a thrilling 4-3 cup victory at Verona.

Empoli’s recent run has also included wins over Torino and Fiorentina, and they now sit in a superb eighth place, just two points behind Juventus and Roma. Empoli have played without fear since returning to the top flight; only six teams have registered more shots, all of them being clubs sat in the European spots, and their record of five away wins is better than that of everyone outside the top four.

The contrast with Spezia’s recent form couldn’t be more stark. Thiago Motta’s team are winless in five league games, losing four, although they have faced difficult fixtures against Atalanta, Inter and Roma during that run. However, Thursday’s 2-0 reverse at home to second-tier Lecce, even after Motta had made changes to his team, will be cause for concern for an outfit which sits just two points above the dreaded dotted line.

Empoli good value for another away win

Spezia have conceded more goals than any other Serie A club, a huge 38 in 17 games, and have also failed to score in four of their last five games. Empoli’s only away defeats in an impressive season have come at Roma and Verona, and they look to be excellent value to extend their fine run of form here.

Backing Empoli to claim a fifth win in six games is the best play for Sunday afternoon, with a routine 2-0 away victory a solid correct score prediction.
