Empoli vs Udinese Prediction 22 January 2017

Tournament: Italian Serie A
Location: Carlo Castellani Stadium
Match date: 22.01.2017 at 14:00

On January 22 2017 at 14:00 in the regular game of the 21st matchday of the Italian Serie A at the Carlo Castellani Stadium the local Empoli play against Udinese.

Empoli are known to be strong middle peasants of the Italian elite division. Yet, in the current season they had to face a lot of problems and the fact that they score too little is one of them. Empoli only scored 11 goals in the 20 matches they placed since the start of the championship. Anyway, in the latest games they managed to improve the situation and started gaining points and getting higher above the relegation zone. In the latest 5 matches Empoli gained 8 points where they drew Bologna 0:0 and Sampdoria 0:0, outplayed Cagliari 2:0 and Palermo 1:0 and lost to Atalanta 2:1.

As for Udinese, they managed to show great progress in the current season compared to the previous ones as they took a position in the middle of the standings. Yet, in a few latest games they were not so lucky and lost their two last matches to Rome 0:1 and Inter 1:2. Before that Udinese drew Sampdoria 0:0 and outplayed Crotone 2:0 and Atalanta 1:2.

The results of the matches played between the teams show the advantage of Udinese. In the first round game of the current season Udinese won 2:0, even though Empoli won their two latest home games, we think that Udinese show better performance in the current season and are more likely to won. We shouldn’t also forget that the hosts have a lot of serious problems with scoring goals in the current season. That is why we think that Udinese will manage to get their three points in that upcoming match.
