Match preview

The Blues welcome Juventus Turin to the Stadio Carlo Castellani on Saturday for this Serie A match. Empoli were 0-1 winners on Matchday 2 of the season against Juve. Another win over Italy’s most successful team would see them claim their first ever league double over the Old Lady.

However, they haven’t won a league match at home against Juventus since the turn of the millennium with a record of two draws and six defeats against the Turin giants.

Empoli come into the match on a run of nine league games without a win. They have picked up three points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.

Gli Azzurri lost their last league match away to Sampdoria Genoa. Expected goals of 1.3 to 0.6 in favour of Empoli indicates they were a little unfortunate to get nothing from the match.

This is perhaps a little misleading though given that Samp took an early 2-0 lead and just coasted through the match with it. Szymon Zurkowski, Nedim Bajrami and Andrea La Mantia all should have done better for Empoli with their big chances. The final score of the match was 2-0.

Their opponent on Saturday, Juventus Turin, come into the match on a run of 12 league games undefeated. They have picked up 12 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.

The Old Lady shared the points in their last league match at home to Torino FC. Expected goals of 0.8xG apiece highlights how evenly matched the two sides were on the balance of chances created making a draw a fair result in the end.

Matthijs de Ligt opened the scoring for Juve in the twelfth minute of the Turin derby with his second league goal this season. Sadly, Juve were unable to create another chance of similar quality leaving them open for a late sucker punch which came midway through the second-half. The final score of the match was 1-1.

De Ligt is 7/1 to get on the scoresheet again here against Empoli.
