Empoli vs Bari Prediction 3 September 2017

Tournament: Italian Serie B
Location: Carlo Castellani Stadium
Match date: 03.09.2017 at 16:30

On September 3 2017 at 16:30 in the second game of the Italian national championship Serie B at the Carlo Castellani Stadium the local Empoli will be visited by Bari.  

In the previous season Empoli showed rather poor results, in fact. They have serious problems with efficiency and they lost a lot of points because of it. In their 38 matches played they gained 32 points with 29:61 goal difference and finished the championship on the 18th place in the standings and were relegated. They made some serious changes and the replacement of the manager was one of them. In the first game Empoli drew Ternana.

As for Bari, most of the previous season was rather good for them. They were considered to be one of the contenders to make it to the promotion play-offs and yet they failed at the end of the championship and were just in the middle of the standings in the end. The directors of the team didn’t probably didn’t expect such results and that’s why they decided to replace the manager. They started the new season with Fabio Grosso and have already played three games in it where they outplayed Parma and Cremonese in the Coppa Italia and Cesena 3:0 in the first match of the Serie B.

The history of the latest five games played between the teams show no advantage of any of them. Last time they met was in 2014 and Bari won 3:0 then. Empoli will probably need to face a lot of problems this season while Bari will be one of the favorites of the Serie B. It seems to us that the visitors are very likely to avoid a loss this time.
