The Griffin welcome Empoli to the Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Sunday for this Serie A match. Empoli are on a six game winless run in this head to head and haven’t won a match in Genoa since 2008.
Genoa CFC come into the match on an insane run of 24 league games without a win. They have picked up five points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.
I Rossoblu’s last league match, at home to Inter Milano, ended in a dull 0-0 draw. Expected goals of 1.2 to 0.8 in favour of Inter indicates both teams probably deserved only a point. Il Grifone winger Albert Gudmundsson will be thinking back to his missed big chance in the game’s opening minutes. It was the only big chance either side created in an otherwise dull game.
Mattia Destro is Genoa CFC’s top scorer with nine goals in Serie A this season and is the 2.5/1 favourite to score against Empoli on Sunday.
Their opponent on Sunday, Empoli, come into the match on a run of 10 league games without a win having also failed to score in each of their last two matches on the road. They have picked up three points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.
The Blues lost their last league match at home to Juventus Turin. Expected goals of 2.1 to 1.4 in favour of Juventus indicates perhaps it was a fair result.
Empoli will be aware that they scored with their only two shots on target in the match and that they will need to increase their shots on target ratio if they want to keep finding the back of the net here. The final score of the match was 2-3.
Andrea Pinamonti is Empoli’s top scorer with nine goals in Serie A this season and is 2.75/1 to score against Genoa CFC on Sunday.
