Empoli vs Salernitana – Prediction, and Match Preview
Empoli vs Salernitana – With a run of three straight defeats in April, the hosts found themselves in difficulty.
They have dropped to top-15 in the league table and are now within striking distance of the teams in the red zone after losing seven of their previous nine league games.
In recent weeks, Paolo Zanetti’s team has had an especially difficult time creating opportunities. In the aforementioned string of three losses, they have only managed one goal, which came via their lone shot on goal in a 2-1 loss to a Sassuolo team that was down to 10 men and lacking in motivation last weekend.
Zanetti and his team will now be facing a Salernitana team that is in fine form and has gone unbeaten in ten straight league games, which will make it more difficult for them.
Boulaye Dia is now operating at full capacity. The leading scorer for Salernitana has four goals in his previous two games, including a hat-trick against Fiorentina on Wednesday night that left the score at 3-3.
In its last three league games, Salernitana has thus far managed to win once and draw twice despite playing teams like Sassuolo, Napoli, and Fiorentina.
