In the next match of the 36th round of the Italian Series, Empoli will host Cosenza. Will the hosts be able to secure a place in Serie A?
Empoli slowed down at the end of the season, with only one win in the last four rounds. Moreover, in the last match, the team lost completely, for the second time in 35 matches of Serie B. But even negative results recently do not prevent Empoli from leading the standings and having a 6-point handicap over the next Lecce. If Empoli wins against Cosenza, they will be promoted ahead of schedule.
"Cosenza" does not think about any promotion in the class, it will be lucky for her to stay in the Series B, but this is still difficult. After 35 matches played, "Cosenza" is located in the zone of transition matches, on the 17th line, with 35 points. The gap from the safe 15th position is 6 points, so a defeat in the reporting match will put an end to the dreams of leaving the zone of transition games.
Statistics and figures:
- "Empoli" in case of victory in the upcoming game will register an exit to the Serie A;
- "Cosenza" if it loses to Empoli, it will not rise above the transition zone;
- In the first round match, Empoli won 2-0.
"Empoli" approaches the match with great motivation, because the victory will allow you to advance ahead of time in the class and win the gold medals of Serie B. Given that the opponents are one of the outsiders, I do not think that the hosts will face problems.
