AC Milan vs Empoli
Italian Serie A
Date: Friday, 22 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio San Siro (Milano).
Milan finally managed to find the right form as they will be looking to snatch third consecutive league win on Friday evening against relegation threatened Empoli at San Siro.
Rossoneri broke into the top four in the league ladder after back-to-back wins over Cagliari and Atalanta. They are unbeaten in last six matches in all competitions, a streak which saw a fine 2-0 victory over Napoli in Coppa Italia quarter-final.
Gennaro Gatusso’s troops will have a nice opportunity to keep the hot run of form going here against Empoli who are one of the weakest away teams in the entire division.
Azzurri are one of just two teams in the league without a single win on the road this term. They lost seven and drew four of eleven Serie A outings away from home.
Nevertheless, Giuseppe Iachini’s men will come into this in high spirits following a super-important 3-0 victory over Sassuolo last weekend at Stadio Carlo Castellani. They are now three points above the danger area.
AC Milan vs Empoli: Head-to-head
We should expect goals on Friday evening according by the head to head tradition between these two likes.
Both teams scored in all of last eight H2H encounters.
Teams shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they took on each other in late-September at Carlo Castellani.
Milan won six, drew one and lost three of ten home ties against Azzurri.
AC Milan vs Empoli: Prediction
Krzysztof Piatek is proving out to be a fantastic addition to Milan’s squad. The Polish striker scored six goals in last four appearances for Rossoneri and he will no doubts be the main threat to Empoli’s goal on Friday. The young Pole continued his impressive form last weekend when his brace inspired a 1-3 comeback against Atalanta away in Bergamo.
Empoli have one of the worst defensive records in the entire league (45 goals allowed in 24 matches) and we can hardly expect anything other but a comprehensive victory for Milan with Piatek on target at least once.
