Empoli vs Fiorentina Match Preview
Empoli host Fiorentina for their Matchday 35 clash on Sunday as they look for a return to the winning ways with a four-match winless streak since beating Napoli (2-1) in early April, sitting in the relegation zone with just 29 points to their name after 34 games.
Azzurri have seen Udinese (3-2), SPAL (2-4), and Bologna (3-1) bag important point and only shared the spoils in a thriller goalless draw at Atalanta, where the rivals just failed to convert and Bartlomiej Drągowski impressed between the posts.
They will now want to shut down the troubled rivals too and Fiorentina’s woes look worrying indeed, as Vincenzo Montella’s men saw six losses and six draws in 12 outings since mid-February – when they outclassed SPAL in a 1-4 win in Ferrara.
Viola have seen a very tough schedule on the road and although they’ve earned just one point in five trips (2-2 at Roma), we’ve seen them scoring goals on the regular. They’ve dropped points at Atalanta (3-1), Cagliari (2-1), Juventus (2-1), and suffered a Coppa Italia loss to La Dea (2-1) most recently.
With that in mind, we hope to see the visitors struggling to end such a streak now as we go for a Home win at an enticing 27/20 with bet365, closing the four-point gap in a chase to escape the red zone.
However, we feel Fiorentina will be great moving forward and making this a thriller contest, as Empoli have to outgun them to secure the points. With that in mind, we’re also going for a Yes on Both teams to score at 4/7 with bet365 which comes off as a banker bet.
