Empoli vs Udinese Predictions & Analysis

Empoli and Lazio were both involved in crazy high-scoring thrillers on Thursday evening. Empoli drew 2-2 away at Torino, while Udinese held Lazio to a 4-4 draw at Stadio Olimpico on the same day.

The two teams are now set to take on each other in the 16th round of the Serie A. Empoli are currently four points above Udinese as the outfits sit in the middle of the league standings.

Interestingly, Empoli have played much better on travels than on the home patch so far in the season.

They thus won only two and lost five of eight home fixtures this term. The team favor attacking-minded football under Aurelio Andreazzolli.

Each of the last five games they played saw goals scored at both ends. Empoli conceded two early goals on Thursday away at Torino but found a way to claw back into the contest and eventually earn a big point against ten-man opposition.

Udinese, on the other side, had to score the 99th-minute equalizer to rescue a point in Rome despite having a two-goal lead on multiple occasions against Lazio.

It was the second consecutive draw for Luca Gotti’s men who will be searching for their first win in four games on Monday at Stadio Carlo Castellani.
