A better home performance needed by Empoli
Out of the five wins Empoli registered this season, four of them came on the road. Notably, the only win Empoli had in front of their fans was a 4-2 win in round six. Since then, the Azzurri lost two and drew one of their games at Stadio Carlo Castellani. That in fact makes coach Aurelio Andreazzoli’s team the third-worst team with a home record.
However, with 16 points already this season, Empoli have a better record than their previous four seasons in the Serie A during the last seven years. Moreover, in all of the four home defeats, the Azzurri were already trailing at halftime. Hence, it is important for Andreazzolli’s team to close down their defense that allowed 2.57 goals per match at home this season.
Fiorentina looking for their first away goal in three matches
Fiorentina are looking for their first back-to-back wins since round four of this season. In fact, the Violas were on a three-match winning streak at that time. Moreover, this is Fiorentina’s best start to Serie A season since 2016. Notably, coach Vincenzo Italiano’s team don’t believe in draws as they won seven and lost six of their 13 games this season.
With wins in Atalanta Genoa and Udinese Fiorentina’s away record is quite respectable. However, their last result drew attention in the 12th round when they beat AC Milan 4-3. To point out, that was Rossoneri’s first defeat this season as the Viola played a very effective counter-attacking game. Nevertheless, in their seven away games, Fiorentina failed to score in their last three trips.
Empoli vs Fiorentina Prediction
With Empoli’s home form this season, it is no surprise that they are the underdogs going into this game. Still, the bookies are paying 2.11 for a Fiorentina win which is quite high since the Violas lost to Empoli in their previous visit in 2019.
Looking at the goals market, Empoli average 1.29 goals per game in their home games this season. While Fiorentina’s average away goals is 0.86 in the last five on-the-road games.
Considering all these aspects, and the fact that Fiorentina are marginally in better form, we will choose a combo bet from Vbet. Double chance with an away win and under 3.5 goals seems very probable.
As for our second prediction, we will back under 10.5 corners since both teams are averaging five corners per match this season.
