Empoli vs Juventus MatchGains Match Preview, Soccer Prediction, and Betting Tips
Juventus would head to Empoli this weekend after earning a morale-boosting 1-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford. The Old Ladies are yet to lose a game across all competitions this season as they have established a lead at the top of the Serie A table as well as placed one foot in the Champions League round of 16, things could hardly be better than this for them.
Empoli look very unprepared for life in the Italian top flight and they certainly don’t look like a team that can stop Juventus from getting maximum points from this game. They have failed to win any of their last 8 games in the league, and last week they had a fantastic chance to record a much-needed win, but they could only draw 3-3 and fellow newly-promoted Frosinone.
Despite the poor state of their opponents Juventus should not be expected to go all out and get a high scoring win as they seem to prioritize defensive solidity over scoring so many goals. Juve have conceded just six times in the league this season, winning their last two on the road 2-0. Meanwhile, Empoli have already come up short in clashes with Roma and Lazio, and the same is likely to happen here.
Empoli’s last Serie A win against Juventus came back in April 1999 (1-0 at the Castellani) – since then the Bianconeri have won 12 times, drawing just twice.
