AC Milan vs Empoli Match Preview
AC Milan host Empoli for their Matchday 25 clash on Friday evening in great mood and on the back of a thrilling 1-3 win at Atalanta as well as a six-match unbeaten streak, hoping to keep building on their top 4 spot with Roma breathing down their necks.
Rossoneri have beaten Genoa (0-2), Cagliari (3-0), Napoli (2-0 in Coppa Italia) and held both Napoli (0-0 in Serie A) and Roma (1-1) along the way, largely lifting their team spirits under Gennaro Gattuso and enjoying a great moment with Krzysztof Piatek leading the attacking line.
Empoli have seen a great Sunday display of their own, where they beat Sassuolo (3-0) with goals from Krunic, Acquah and Farias and ended a four-match winless streak. They hover just above the relegation zone but we’ve seen Guiseppe Iachini’s men putting on tougher challenges lately.
Azzurri have thus held Cagliari (2-2) and Chievo (2-2) to thriller draws and only suffered narrow losses to Genoa (1-3) and Lazio (1-0) along the way, scoring numbers of goals as well. They will be just as desperate for points to escape the danger zone but we don’t see them snatching any at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
We will now rather back AC Milan to secure the points with confidence and we’ll go for a Home win to Nil at 6/5 with Paddy Power, which feels like great value seeing Gennaro Gattuso has based success on a tough defensive approach before anything else.
However, we don’t feel we should be in for a very one-sided contest and we’ll rather go for a low-scoring game with Under 2.5 Goals FT at 11/10 with bet365. We’ve seen four of Milan’s last six outings end that way and we now hope for a similar challenge from Empoli.
