Match Preview

The Little Zebras welcome Empoli to the Stadio Friuli on Saturday for this Serie A match. The importance of home advantage is clearly highlighted in this head to head, with the home side winning each of the last five matches between them.

Udinese Calcio come into the match on a run of five home league games undefeated. They have picked up 11 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.

I Friulani won their last league match away to Venezia. Expected goals of 3.1 to 1.2 in favour of Udinese indicates it was likely a fair result. Le Zebrette were awarded a penalty after half an hour which Gerard Deulofeu stepped up to convert for his side to open the scoring. It looked like a late equaliser would split the points until Rodrigo Becão headed in a corner in dramatic fashion deep into injury-time. The final score of the match was 1-2.

Deulofeu now has double figures for the season after his tenth goal for Udinese here in Serie A and is 2.7/1 to score against Empoli on Saturday.

Their opponent on Saturday, Empoli, come into the match on a run of 15 league games without a win and have failed to score in each of their last five matches on their travels. They have picked up just three points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.

The Blues’ last league match, at home to Spezia Calcio, ended in a dull 0-0 draw. Expected goals of 1.5 to 0.9 in favour of Spezia indicates Empoli were a little fortunate to escape from the game with a point. Empoli have Guglielmo Vicario to thank for the clean sheet here, whose point-blank save in the 85th minute kept Spezia out.

Andrea Pinamonti is Empoli’s top scorer with nine goals in Serie A this season and is 3.75/1 to end their five game goal drought on the road by scoring against Udinese Calcio on Saturday.
