Empoli vs Spezia – preview and prediction

Empoli vs Spezia –Seven days ago, Spezia won a crucial 1-0 victory over Venezia to move ten points clear of the relegation zone.

With only seven games remaining in the current campaign, it is safe to predict that Spezia will likely remain in the top tier of Italian football next season.

In the aforementioned triumph over Venezia, Thiago Motta’s team did not sparkle, but Emmanuel Gyasi scored a late winner in the fourth minute of added time.

It was Spezia’s second win in three league games, and they will open Gameweek 32 in Serie A on Saturday afternoon when they travel to Stadio Carlo Castellani to face bottom-placed opponents Empoli.

In the league table, Empoli is only one point ahead of Spezia, but their recent form has been dismal.

In all competitions, the team led by Aurelio Andreazzoli is winless in the last 15 games. The most recent setback was last Sunday, when they lost 1-0 against Fiorentina.

At Stadio Artemio Franchi, Empoli only managed a single shot on goal. In recent weeks, they’ve had a lot of trouble with a lack of attacking inventiveness.

In the last four league games, Empoli has scored no more than two goals. We like Spezia’s chances of keeping things tight at the back on Saturday, especially since they haven’t conceded a goal in two of their past three Serie A games.

Empoli vs Spezia – Betting Analysis

Empoli are 1.90 favorites to win here, but we’re having a hard time seeing the value given that they haven’t won in 15 games across all competitions.

Because Empoli has been struggling for goals recently, and four of Spezia’s previous five league matches have concluded with fewer than three goals scored, the Under 2.5 goals FT looks like a good bet at 2.00 odds.
