As part of one of the matches of the Italian Football Championship, the players of Empoli and Sampdoria will come face to face. Which of the rivals will get the victory in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this game.
The players of "Empoli" under the leadership of Andreazzoli in the last round unexpectedly lost to" Venice " with a score of 1:2 on their own field. The hosts had an advantage over their opponents throughout the match, but after conceding two goals, they got into an unpleasant situation, from which they could not get out. It is worth noting that up to this point, Empoli managed to defeat Juventus on a visit and present its fans with perhaps the most significant surprise for the entire football year. Now the team is 12th, but at any moment it can fall into the relegation zone.
Sampdoria's players are one point behind their current rivals and are on the 15th line in the table. The team of D'Aversa has not yet won a single victory, losing to Milan, as well as drawing with Sassuolo and Inter. It is worth noting that so far "Doria" does not justify the hopes placed on it, and the leaders who confidently played in the team's camp last season are still silent in the national championship.
Injuries and disqualifications:
- Fiamozzi (muscle injury) - Empoli. Gabbiadini (ankle) – Sampdoria.
Statistics and figures:
- The opponents have approximately equal chances of winning;
- Empoli has 3 wins in the last 5 meetings;
- "Sampdoria" can't win in the last 3 meetings;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 2:1 in favor of Empoli.
The beginning of the championship performed by the teams makes you think that their face-to-face meeting may turn out to be ineffective. Scoring goals is not easy for teams, and it is for this reason that I bet on a reduced total in the match.
