Empoli vs Napoli Prediction 19 March 2017

Tournament: Italian Serie A
Location: Carlo Castellani Stadium
Match date: 19.03.2017 at 10:30

On March 19 2017 at 10:30 in the first game of the 29th matchday of the Italian Serie A at the Carlo Castellani Stadium the local Empoli meet Napoli.

Empoli showed really poor results in the current season, in fact. They only scored 15 goals and it makes them be the worst team of the championship according to the number of goals scored. In the latest away game Empoli lost to Chievo 4:0 and it prolonged their losing series to make it 5 matches long already. Yet, they are still 7 points above the relegation zone due to the mistakes other outsiders made.

Napoli are 10 points below the leaders of the championship Juventus and that’s the distance they won’t be able to overcome this season. Napoli are extremely efficient in the current season, yet the mistakes they made created this gap between them and the leaders of the league. Anyway, Napoli are the best team of the championship according to the results of their 13 away matches played this season. In the latest away matches Napoli drew Fiorentina and won against Milan, Bologna, Chievo and Roma.

Of course, Napoli are the favorites of the upcoming game. There are a few reasons why we think so. First of all, Empoli looked just horrible in their latest games and haven’t won for two months already. Secondly, even when Empoli won in the current season, they did it in the matches against the outsiders. Thirdly, Empoli are really poor in attack and it won’t let them break the defense of Napoli, as it seems to us. As for Napoli, they will have an opportunity to win against Empoli at their home ground for the first time in their history. We think that Napoli will definitely score in the upcoming match and won’t concede a single goal.
