Empoli did manage to beat Milan the last time the two sides met, which was two seasons ago. And last season, Milan were the first side to drop points against Benevento when they were held to a 2-2 draw with the debutants and they also lost to Hellas Verona, so clearly, the Azzurri will be fancying their chances at causing another upset. So far they have picked up just four points from their first five games and are hovering outside the drop zone. In fact, of the three promoted sides, only Parma have managed to do solidly so far.

The hosts come into this game having lost to Sassuolo, whilst Milan have stumbled to two draws against Cagliari and Atalanta from their past two games. The Diavolo also didn’t impress really in Europa League action, and scraped by debutants Dudelange thanks to a goal from Gonzalo Higuain. They’ll certainly be relying on him once again to bail them out here, as he has scored in his past three games across all competitions for the Diavolo.

Empoli vs AC Milan: Head-to-head statistics

  • Milan are undefeated in their last 8 away matches against Empoli in all competitions
  • Empoli have never beaten Milan at home in the top flight (D6 L6)
  • Both teams have scored in the last seven ties between Empoli and Milan

Empoli vs AC Milan: Prediction

Neither Milan nor Empoli have the strongest defenses, so expecting both teams to score here is a safe bet. BTTS has taken place in Milan’s last five road Serie A fixtures, so the hosts should be able to grab a goal.

However, Empoli haven’t beaten Milan at home – ever – in their history when it comes to facing the Diavolo in the top flight and with Higuain in their ranks he could prove to be the difference-maker for the visitors.

Empoli vs AC Milan: Betting tips

  • Milan – WIN at 10/11 (1.91)
  • BTTS – YES at 8/11 (1.73)
  • Over 2.5 goals at 4/5 (1.80).
