Under 2.5 Match Goals

Reason for tip

Under 2.5 goals have been scored in four of the last six Serie A games played by Udinese, while the last four matches played by Empoli have contained a maximum of two goals. With the Zebrette failing to win any of their last eight games, punters are advised to neglect the result markets.

Draw 1-1

Reason for tip

Udinese have failed to win any of their last eight matches after winning each of the previous six. The Zebrette have only scored twice in their last three home games, and their tally of six Serie A draws this season is more than every team except Cremonese.

Udinese vs Empoli Predictions

  • Udinese failed to win any of their last eight games ahead of the World Cup, meaning punters may wish to avoid the result markets.
  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in four of the Zebrette’s last six Serie A games.
  • None of Empoli’s last four matches have contained more than two goals.

Zebrette require a reset

Udinese looked like surprise contenders for European qualification when they flew out of the traps at the start of this season, but Andrea Sottil’s side endured an eight-match winless run ahead of the World Cup, leaving them in dire need of a reset. On Wednesday, the Zebrette resume their campaign against Empoli, and a tight affair is likely when two out-of-form attacks meet.

Sottil’s team saw under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last six Serie A matches before the international break, a run which included underwhelming draws against struggling trio Lecce, Spezia and Cremonese. Udinese hammered Empoli 4-1 in this exact fixture last season, but the goals have since dried up for the Zebrette – who have only scored twice in their last three home games.

Empoli, meanwhile, have seen under 2.5 goals scored in each of their last four matches, winning two and losing two. Only relegation candidates Sampdoria (six) and Cremonese (11) have scored fewer goals than Empoli’s 12 in Serie A this term, and only three teams have created fewer than their 14.5 expected goals (xG) in the competition.

Entertainment unlikely when low-scoring sides meet

Given Udinese’s poor run and Empoli’s inconsistency, neither team looks worth backing for victory on Wednesday – under 2.5 goals appears a strong play after both sides saw the goals dry up before Christmas.

Meanwhile, a tense 1-1 draw may represent a decent correct score prediction – only Cremonese (seven) have managed more Serie A draws than Udinese this campaign (six).
