Empoli vs Salernitana: prediction for the Serie A match
Empoli will host Salernitana in the 37th round of the Italian Serie A. Salernitana are desperate to earn three points, which can help them escape relegation. Will they be successful? Here's our prediction.
Empoli have secured their spot in the Italian elite and sit comfortably in 14th place in the table. Aurelio Andreazzoli's men are seven points clear of the relegation zone, so today they can afford to lose. In the last game, Empoli suffered a defeat to Inter Milan (2:4) - the team had a decent performance in attack, but couldn't overcome the defending champions.
Salernitana are hovering above the relegation zone 30 points from 36 games, just one point ahead of Cagliari. Today Davide Nicola's charges need to win - otherwise, it will be extremely difficult to retain their Serie A residence. Salernitana have been delivering quality performance in the last few matches; the team is unbeaten in the last six games. Last week, the Garnets drew against Cagliari (1:1).
This score was recorded in 2 of the last 6 games of Salernitana.
In the last 4 games, Salernitana scored 3 goals before halftime.
This bet won in 3 of the last 5 home games of Empoli.
Salernitana will push hard to get a win today. A victory at Empoli will help them stay clear of the danger zone. While the visitors are in good form and very motivated to fight, Empoli don't really need to earn points - they have already secured their Serie A spot. We will be backing Salernitana in this fixture.
