Recommended bets

There has never been a home win in this head to head. Empoli ran out 2-4 winners in the reverse fixture back in October. However, they have been on an abysmal run of form since then with just one win in nineteen. Along with leaders Milan, Salernitana are the only side undefeated in their last six games in Serie A. Therefore, 101 Great Goals’ prediction for this match is Empoli 1-1 US Salernitana and is available at odds of 7.5/1.

Alternatively, you can bet on any Empoli win at 3.2/1 against I Granata at home on Saturday.

Or, back any away win for Salernitana at 2.1/1 here at the Stadio Carlo Castellani.

You can find odds of 3.75/1 for any draw between Empoli and Salernitana on Saturday.

Match Preview

The Blues welcome US Salernitana to the Stadio Carlo Castellani on Saturday for this Serie A match. Salernitana’s recent results have dug them out of the drop zone but could end up back in the bottom three with a defeat here if results elsewhere also go against them. Despite defeat last weekend, Empoli were guaranteed their top-flight status for another season due to the draw between Salernitana and Cagliari.

Empoli come into the match on a run of two defeats in a row. They have picked up four points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.

Gli Azzurri lost their last league match away to Inter Milano. Expected goals of 5.6 to 0.7 in favour of Inter indicates perhaps it was a fair result and the victory could have been by a four or five-goal margin rather than just two. Simone Romagnoli will be disappointed with his own goal here which started the Empoli’s collapse after going two goals ahead. The final score of the match was 4-2.

Andrea Pinamonti grabbed the game’s opening goal and is Empoli’s top scorer with thirteen goals in Serie A this season. He is the 6/1 favourite to score the opener against US Salernitana on Saturday.

Their opponent on Saturday, US Salernitana, come into the match on a run of six league games undefeated. They have picked up 14 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.

The Garnets shared the points in their last league match at home to Cagliari Calcio. Expected goals of 1.6 to 0.4 in favour of Salernitana indicates they were the better side and probably deserved more than a point from the match. Particularly the manner of the equaliser, coming in the eighth minute of injury-time, from a corner, and having missed two big chances to double their lead in the ten minutes prior.

It was Simone Verdi’s penalty that proved enough to secure only a point for Salernitana in the end. Verdi now has five league goals this season for Salernitana and is 7.5/1 to grab the game’s opening goal again here. The final score of the match was 1-1.

Empoli team news

Federico Di Francesco was withdrawn due to injury with twenty minutes remaining last weekend. While the severity isn’t yet known, he is unlikely to start here with Patrick Cutrone potentially replacing him from the start.

Emmanuel Ekong, Riccardo Marchizza (cruciate ligament injury), Nicolas Haas (cruciate ligament), and Lorenzo Tonelli (cruciate ligament injury) will also be unavailable for The Blues due to injury on Saturday. They may look to make a few unforced changes to the side who lost against Inter Milano in their last league match.

US Salernitana team news

The red card shown to Franck Ribéry in their last league match against Cagliari means Salernitana will now be without him for today’s match. Emil Bohinen also looks set to miss out after collecting his fifth yellow card of the season resulting in a suspension.

Injuries will rule out Mamadou Coulibaly (muscle injury) and Luca Ranieri (muscular problems) for the trip to the Stadio Carlo Castellani. They may look to shuffle their deck voluntarily having drawn against Cagliari Calcio in their last league match.
