Salernitana sit at the middle of the table with 41 points and with a good chance of making into the play-off zone. They defeated Novara by a solitary goal on Sunday to cut short the gap with top eight teams to a chase-able 5 points.

Form-wise, Empoli are on a red hot run and their last league defeat can be dated back to November 2017. They are unbeaten in 17 games and no surprise that they are bossing the league table.

Salernitana’s current form is positive with the team coming on the back of a four match unbeaten run with 3 wins and 1 draw. Yet, the team presents an awful picture from their away form having won just 1 of their last 6 games.

Empoli vs Salernitana: Head-to-head

Empoli vs Salernitana: Prediction

Massively important game for both teams, but it is hard to take points away from Empoli at the Stadio Carlo Castellani. On top of that, Salernitana are an average away team, also, they don’t have the quality in playing squad as compared to their Thursday’s host.
