Juventus vs Empoli: Match Preview and Prediction
Juventus vs Empoli: Juventus enters this game fresh off seven straight victories in all competitions. This season, Juventus has won eight and drawn two of its ten league games played at home. In his last two games, Dusan Vlahovic scored four goals against Lecce and Sassuolo.
Juventus finished first in Serie A, surpassing Inter Milan. Last Saturday, they easily beat Lecce 3-0 away from home to lead the standings. Inter Milan has a game in hand, but La Vecchia Signora is one point ahead owing to their Super Cup absence last weekend.
Dusan Vlahovic scored twice at Stadio Comunale Via del Mare six days earlier, extending his impressive run. The Serbian striker has 11 league goals this season. He can continue dominating up front on Saturday as Juventus hosts relegation-battling Empoli in Gameweek No. 22.
After beating Monza 3-0, Empoli will be more confident despite being in second place in the league. Szymon Zurkowski scored a hat-trick to beat Monza in his best effort. Two points separate Empoli from the safe zone.
