Perugia vs Empoli Prediction

Perugia has already lost three of their last five matches in the Serie B following a 1-0 loss away from home to Frosinone in their most recent encounter. It has to be noted that they have failed to score any goals in the three losses.

With 33 points to their name in the table, same as Empoli, Perugia cannot be written off despite their recent dip in form. Also, only one of their three losses were at home.

Empoli, on the other hand, is coming in hot to Perugia with a three-game unbeaten streak in the campaign. They have only one loss in their last five league matches following a 2-1 home win against Pisa in their prior clash.

In the meantime, Empoli will be concerned about their on the road form. They have lost six away games without scoring any goals before recording an away win in their previous trip on the road.

In sharp contrast, the host has lost only three of their last ten home matches in the campaign. However, they will be hosting after losing their previous home match against Spezia with a 0-3 scoreline.

Based on these stats, we can say that both teams have chances of taking all three points in the match. With their last six h2h clashes seeing a clear winner in all, the chances for a draw are narrow at Perugia.

Hence, the punters can go with a double chance for both teams in the game. Also, since the game is a competitive one, we can expect both teams to score at least a goal each in the clash.
