Napoli travels to Empoli this weekend, as it looks to close the gap between itself and the top 2 teams in the ongoing season of Serie A.
Talking about the hosts first, Empoli has been pretty disappointing in the second half of the season, failing to register even a single victory since the winter break. However, the club has done just enough in the first half to keep its head above the water. Empoli is currently in the 14th spot on the points table, 12 points ahead of the bottom 3.
With just 5 more weeks to go before the season ends, it is unlikely that they will face relegation. Empoli faced Udinese in its latest fixture last week, where an own goal by Ismajli in the 6th minute set the tone for the game. Deulofeu extended the lead to 2 goals for Udinese, and although a penalty by Pinamonti gave some hope to Empoli fans, two more goals by the hosts ensured that Empoli faced a third loss in 5 games.
After facing a disappointing loss against Fiorentina, Napoli managed to claim 1 point from its last game against Roma. After Insigne gave the hosts an early lead through a penalty, a late goal in stoppage time by Faraone denied the hosts 2 crucial points, and both the teams shared the exploits. As a result, Napoli is currently in the third spot, trailing the toppers AC Milan by 4 points. With 15 points still up for grabs, Napoli can still aim to finish the season at the top, for just the 3rd time in its history.
Match prediction and football betting tips for F. C. Empoli vs SSC Napoli Serie A 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Stadio Comunale Carlo Castellani, Empoli, on 24th April 2022.
Going by the past record, this game promises to be an engaging contest, with both the teams vying hard to pick up 3 points. The hosts have a long list of absentees, including Ricardo Marchizza, Lorenzo Tonelli, Nicolas Haas, Emmanuel Ekong, and Federico Di Francesco. On the other hand, the visitors may take on the field without Lobotka and Di Lorenzo, while Koulibaly will miss the match due to suspension.
Given the horrible form of the home team, the visitors should have no problems in winning this one, and moving on to the second spot.
Bet on Napoli to win.
In 9 of the last 11 head-to-head games across competitions, the teams have scored more than 2.5 goals at full time. Also, 4 of the last 5 games for Napoli have seen more than 2.5 goals being scored. Goals have been flowing whenever Napoli has played recently and we are happy to bet on the same for this match as well.
With 12 goals, Osimhen is Napoli’s top scorer this season. He has scored 5 goals in the last 4 games, which include two braces. Given the weak defenses of Empoli, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him score in the match.
