Monza vs Empoli
Italian Serie A
Date: 4 March 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: U-Power Stadium (Monza).
Monza host Empoli in the first game of Saturday’s Serie A schedule at U-Power Stadium. The hosts will be looking to fix the poor impression from the last weekend’s display against Salernitana.
Raffaele Palladino’s troops revealed plenty of holes by conceding three goals in the second half of the clash in Salerno on Sunday.
It was the second straight defeat in the league for Monza who have failed to find the back of the net along the way.
Nevertheless, the hosts are still miles away from the relegation scrap thanks to a positive streak of results after the winter break.
The match against Empoli provides Monza with a great opportunity to quickly return to winning ways as their counterparts have not quite been at their very best of late either.
Empoli sit just one point below Monza in the bottom half of the leagues table but they will go into this tie winless in five subsequent Serie A outings.
Paolo Zanetti’s troops were powerless in the last Friday’s home loss at the hands of sovereign leaders Napoli.
Empoli have now shipped two or more goals in four of the previous five league games, meaning we can expect the hosts to have a lot of room to deliver in the final third on Saturday.
Monza vs Empoli Head-to-head
- These two teams battled it out in the second tier of Italian football back in the 2020/21 campaign when they shared spoils in both head to head clashes.
- Monza have just one win in the last seven meeting with Empoli who claimed a narrow 1-0 victory in the first half of the season at Stadio Carlo Castellani.
- None of the previous four head to head outings between these outfits produced three or more goals.
Monza vs Empoli Prediction
Empoli have been playing attacking-minded football in the recent matches which is why we would not be surprised to witness goals at both ends on Saturday afternoon despite the low-scoring trend in the H2H matches.
You can alternatively back the 1-1 as the correct score pick. Three of the last four games Monza played at home ended without a winner, while we have witnessed the same scenario in three of Empoli’s previous five league outings.
