Empoli vs Fiorentina: Match Preview and Prediction

Empoli vs FiorentinaThe last four league games have seen Empoli go undefeated. In their last five games across all competitions, Fiorentina suffered four losses. In the last six head-to-head matches against Empoli, I Viola has only celebrated one victory.

Thanks to a dramatic 3-1 road victory over rock-bottom Salernitana last weekend, Empoli avoided the red zone. At Stadio Arechi, two goals in the dying minutes by substitutes M’Baye Niang and Matteo Cancellieri proved to be the difference. Thus, Davide Nicola’s team’s streak of victories in league games grew to four.

On Sunday afternoon, Empoli hopes to continue their good form. On Matchday 25, they host Fiorentina at Stadio Carlo Castellani—Computer Gross Arena. Arriving visitors will be much less pleased. Bologna defeated them 0-2 in the postponed Matchday No. 21 match at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Wednesday.

Viola has lost four of their previous five games in all competitions. As a result, Vincenzo Italiano’s team fell to eighth place in the league rankings. Fiorentina’s deficit to Atalanta and Bologna in the race for a top-four finish is now five points. For them to have a chance of playing in the Champions League, they really need a comeback victory.
