Empoli had 30% of the control in that game and 2 of their 5 shots were on goal. Tyronne Ebuehi was the lone performer for Empoli to register a goal (44′).
Atalanta, on the other hand, had 27 shots on goal, with 6 of them finding the mark. Atalanta tallied through Marten de Roon (58′) and Rasmus Hjlund (86′).
Recent times have seen few instances where Empoli have maintained a perfect record. According to the data, Empoli has allowed goals in six of their previous six games, giving up 10 goals in the process.
Whether or not that trend will be continued in this game will be fascinating to see. In their prior 4 games against Lecce, Empoli had not suffered a league tie loss. In their last four league contests, they have failed to win at home. Soon, something must alter.
Lecce and their traveling fans will be hoping for a better outcome in this one after a losing effort in their most recent Serie A match against Fiorentina.
Lecce had 41% of the control in that game and had 8 shots, of which 2 were on goal. Antonino Gallo was the lone scorer for Lecce (Own goal at 27′).
Fiorentina, on the other hand, had 18 attempts on goal with 3 of them being on target. A noticeably low number of goals have been scored between Lecce and their opponents in 5 of the last 6 encounters.
The total average of goals scored during that stretch was a pitiful 1.83, with Giallorossi scoring an average of 0.5. Lecce has lost both of their recent league encounters when playing away from home.
Empoli vs Lecce – Betting Analysis
Empoli and Lecce have split the last four meetings in head-to-head competition going back to August 2, 2006, with three of those meetings ending in draws.
In these games, they managed to score 17 goals, scoring 9 for the Azzurri and 8 for the Giallorossi. That equals 2.83 goals per game on average.
When it comes to the staff, Paolo Zanetti, the manager of Empoli, only has one health issue to deal with out of an otherwise full roster. Due to a Biceps femoris muscle injury, Nicol Cambiaghi is no longer eligible.
With Samuele Perisan, Tyronne Ebuehi, Ardian Ismajli, Sebastiano Luperto, Fabiano Parisi, J. Daniel Akpa, Răzvan Marin, Filippo Bandinelli, Tommaso Baldanzi, Francesco Caputo, and Martin Satriano, in our opinion, the Azzurri will likely play a 4-3-1-2 scheme this time.
Only one fitness issue needs to be addressed by Lecce boss Marco Baroni out of a squad that is largely at full strength. The Pubalgia native Kastriot Dermaku won’t be performing here. Youssef Maleh and Samuel Umtiti are ineligible to participate because they are serving suspensions.
With Wladimiro Falcone, Valentin Gendrey, Federico Baschirotto, Alessandro Tuia, Antonino Gallo, Joan González, Morten Hjulmand, Alexis Blin, Gabriel Strefezza, Lorenzo Colombo, and F. Di Francesco as their starting squad, we predict that Giallorossi will likely start the game with a 4-3-3 formation.
According to our analysis, Lecce will need to put on a strong performance to score against this Empoli team, which is likely to score and maintain its lead.
