Torino vs Empoli Predictions

  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in five of Empoli’s eight Serie A matches this season.
  • Torino, meanwhile, have seen fewer than three goals scored in all three of their home league games this campaign.
  • Torino may not be worth backing for victory after a run of three straight losses, while Empoli have only won once this season.

Il Toro look to arrest slide

Torino belied their tumultuous summer to enjoy a strong start to the Serie A campaign, losing one of their first five games and claiming 10 points. However, Ivan Juric’s men have since lost three games in succession, and approach Sunday’s match against Empoli desperate to arrest their slide. Paolo Zanetti’s team have only lost to Roma and AC Milan in their last seven outings, so may test their hosts.

Torino’s three-match losing streak has included unfavourable trips to Inter and Napoli, but their lack of goals this season will have alarmed Juric – particularly at home. Indeed, in three matches in Turin in Serie A, Il Toro have scored once and conceded once, and they sit in the bottom half of Serie A for expected goals (xG) created this season. Only bottom two Sampdoria (four) and Cremonese (six), meanwhile, have scored fewer Serie A goals than their seven this season.

Empoli have also scored just seven goals this term, while their tally of 8 xG is worse than all but five Serie A teams – the current bottom three among them. Empoli’s four away league games this season have contained a total of eight goals, with three featuring under 2.5 goals. Zanetti’s team have seen under 2.5 goals scored in five of their eight league games this season, and should be expected to attempt to keep things tight.

Tight affair likely in Turin

While Torino begin the match as clear favourites, their dire run of recent form means punters should be wary of backing them, and under 2.5 match goals may represent an alternative play.

Meanwhile, Empoli have won just three of their last 29 league games, a run which stretches back to last December, and Torino may be worth backing for a hard-fought 1-0 win.
