Match Preview

The Blues welcome Hellas Verona to the Stadio Carlo Castellani on Sunday for this Serie A match. These sides played out one of the games of the season in the Italian Cup last time they met back in December. The seven-goal thriller had a penalty, a long rage free-kick goal, a late red card and a nail-biting finish as Empoli finally came out on top.

Empoli come into the match on a run of 12 league games without a win and have also failed to score in each of their last two league matches. They are bottom of the form table with three points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.

Gli Azzurri lost their last league match away to AC Milan. Expected goals of 0.9 to 0.7 in favour of AC Milan indicates they were a little unfortunate to get nothing from the match. With just five shots in the match, Gli Azzurri clearly had a problem in creating chances. That will need to improve to get anything out of Sunday’s match. The final score of the match was 1-0.

Andrea Pinamonti is Empoli’s top scorer with nine goals in Serie A this season and is the 2.75/1 favourite of those in blue to score against Hellas Verona on Sunday.

Their opponent on Sunday, Hellas Verona, come into the match on a run of three away league games without a win. They have picked up eight points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.

The Mastiffs lost their last league match at home to SSC Napoli. Expected goals of 2.1 to 0.9 in favour of Napoli indicates perhaps it was a fair result. Marco Faraoni had a memorable game, first scoring for Verona before receiving a yellow card for handball then a red card for dissent deep in injury time The final score of the match was 1-2.
