Match Preview

The Purple welcome Empoli to the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Sunday for this Serie A match. Viola have the upper hand in the head-to-head, with ten wins to Empoli’s six, from their 23 encounters. However, Empoli come into this match on back to back wins in this head to head. This includes the meeting between the two sides at Stadio Carlo Castellani earlier this season on Matchday 14; A match won 2-1 by Empoli. As a result, they are chasing their first-ever league double over Fiorentina.

ACF Fiorentina come into the match on a run of three league games undefeated. They have picked up 11 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.

Gigliati shared the points in their last league match away to Inter Milano. Expected goals of 1.1 to 1.0 in favour of Fiorentina indicates both teams probably deserved only a point. It was Lucas Torreira’s opening goal just after halftime that ultimately proved enough to secure a point for Fiorentina. Torreira now has four league goals this season for Fiorentina and is 5/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-1.

Their opponent on Sunday, Empoli, come into the match on a run of 13 league games without a win; the longest current winless streak in Serie A. They are bottom of the form table having picked up just three points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.

The Blues shared the points in their last league match at home to Hellas Verona. Expected goals of 1.5 to 0.9 in favour of Verona indicates Empoli were a little fortunate to escape from the game with a point.

With just seven shots in the match, Gli Azzurri clearly had a problem in creating chances. Like Fiorentina, they also scored the opener here thanks to Federico Di Francesco before a late equaliser saw them settle for a point. Di Francesco now has five league goals this season for Empoli and is 4/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-1.
