Empoli still will be kicking themselves for failing to pick up all three points, especially given how badly the Rossoneri have been faring lately. They had never beaten Milan on home turf and that could have been a great chance to pick up a historic win and move further away from the drop zone.

Parma had hoped to spring another surprise after beating Inter, but Napoli weren’t going to allow that to happen. However, Empoli will present a more realistic opponent for them to try to pick off. The Azzurri have tried to reinvent themselves as a more attacking outfit that helped them in Serie B, but it hasn’t paid off that well so far in the jump to the top flight as they sit in 17th spot. Parma, by contrast, led by veteran striker Gervinho, have been picking up some solid results and have won two of their last three games.

Empoli by contrast have lost to Sassuolo and Genoa and overall have lost four of their last five away games and could struggle against their hosts, who were quite impressive against Juventus and only lost that fixture narrowly.

Parma vs Empoli: Head-to-head statistics

  • Parma have won seven of their last ten home games against Empoli (W7 D1 L2)
  • Empoli have failed to win their last five away games (L4 D1)

Parma vs Empoli: Prediction

With Empoli failing to win four of their last five away games and only managing a draw against Chievo, whilst Parma have managed some strong results, including beating Cagliari 2-0 and Inter 1-0 on the road, the Crociati should be able to see off the Azzurri. Beating a direct promotion rival will be essential to further boost their survival chances, and Parma should be able to pick up all three points in an early six-pointer.
