Empoli vs Napoli Italian Serie A Predictions and Match Preview by LeagueLane

Empoli vs Napoli
Italian Serie A
Date: 25 February 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Carlo Castellani (Empoli).

Napoli continued their dream run in this term of Serie A last Friday when they dispatched Sassuolo 0-2 on the road.

It was the 20th win in 23 league games for I Partinopei who are still 15 points clear at the top of the standings.

Luciano Spalletti and his troops will have a chance to prolong their incredible winning streak on Saturday afternoon when they visit Stadio Carlo Castellani in the first match of Gameweek No 24.

The match comes just four days after the team’s clash against Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Champions League but this should not prevent us from backing the visitors by any means.

Napoli are on a run of 18 wins in the last 19 Serie A outings. They have allowed just one goal in the previous six league fixtures and they simultaneously own the competition’s best attacking and defensive record at the moment.

The trip to Stadio Carlo Castellani may represent a challenge for any other team in the league given Empoli’s record there, but we just can’t predict anything else but Napoli’s win in any given game at the moment.

Empoli’s recent form does not help the opposite case in any way given the hosts are winless in four consecutive league matches.

Empoli vs Napoli Head-to-head

  • The teams have 8 wins each going into their 21st head to head meeting.
  • Interestingly, Napoli have only managed to claim a single win in the previous nine visits to Stadio Carlo Castellani.
  • Five of the last seven head to head affairs between these rivals saw the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score option coming in.

Empoli vs Napoli Prediction

Empoli are 12th in the Serie A table at the moment and they have lost only three out of ten home matches since the beginning of the season. This will, however, count for little when they come face to face with the strongest team in the competition.

Napoli to win to nil is well worth backing at the 2.37 odds as this scenario has occurred in four of their last five league games. We also have to go for the league’s top scorer Victor Osimhen to score anytime at the 2.10 odds.

Empoli vs Napoli Betting Tips

  • Napoli to win to nil @ 2.37 (11/8)
  • Victor Osimhen to score anytime @ 2.10 (11/10) odd.
