Match preview

Two sides in the midst of altogether contrasting spells of recent form are set to lock horns in Serie A at The Stadio comunale Carlo Castellani on Saturday, October 15th.

The clash in question will see an Empoli side struggling to convert positive positions into results of late play host to an AC Monza outfit on the up.

Let’s first delve into the recent form of the former.

Since the return to action in Italy’s top-flight on the back of the international break, Empoli have seen what should have proven an additional three points slip through their fingers in heartbreaking fashion.

First, in a showdown with Scudetto holders AC Milan, Gli Azzurri levelled things up with a full 92 minutes on the clock, only to bizarrely concede twice in a matter of minutes en route to an eventual 3-1 defeat.

Then, last time out, the Tuscan outfit carried a narrow advantage into the 90th-minute, before again capitulating to drop two points at Torino.

Such woes have culminated in Paolo Zanetti’s troops slipping to 14th in the Serie A table, just three points clear of the relegation zone.

Should Empoli hope to turn things around this weekend, by means of a return to winning ways, then they will need to do so at the expense of one of the Italian top-tier’s most in-form sides.

Newly-promoted Monza, of course, endured nothing short of a nightmare opening to the club’s debut Serie A campaign.

Recent weeks, though, have given rise to a spectacular turnaround in fortunes for the Lombardy-based outfit.

After slipping to defeat in each of their first five fixtures of 2022/23, Monza have since remained unbeaten across their last four.

The latter three of these results came by way of three-point hauls, at the expense of giants Juventus, relegation-battling Sampdoria and, most recently, Spezia.

Monza, in turn, have climbed comfortably clear of their upcoming hosts in the table.

We at 101 therefore view Raffaele Palladino’s men as favourites to emerge from the Carlo Castellani triumphant on Saturday, albeit with a hard-fought draw also a real possibility.
