Empoli vs Genoa Prediction & Match Preview

Empoli vs Genoa
Italy – Serie A
Date: Monday, 28th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Stadio Carlo Castellani (Empoli).

Star-man Krzysztof Piatek’s transfer to AC Milan will surely hurt the Griffin. They have just let go of one of their main weapons, and quite frankly the team would just misfire without the striker. It came as a surprise that the player could provide serious competition to a warrior like Cristiano Ronaldo in the race for the Serie A Golden Boot, but that’s exactly what the fans were in store for.

The Blues play in the league as if they are attached to the end of a pendulum, in the sense, they would string together a set of good performances, and then would directly go to the other end of the spectrum. As of now, they are going through a period of satisfactory results.

Empoli vs Genoa Prediction

The Old Fool come into the game with the weight of having lost the last five straight away ties. Furthermore, in their last 19 trips on the road, all the team could manage was just two wins. One of them came against arguably the worst team in the league, and the other one in a friendly. It’s safe to say that the hosts would be avoiding a loss this Monday.

Every single game between the teams, at this venue, failed to have at least three goals in total. Encounters between these teams have always been dull in the case of goals scored. Also, 13 of the last 14 overall h2h ties too had the same stat to show. The trend will continue this match-day.
