Serie A: Sampdoria vs Empoli

Sampdoria vs Empoli Betting Tip and Predictions. In the last match of Round 10 in Italian Serie A, Sampdoria take on Empoli.

Sampdoria started this season very solid and after 9 rounds they are standing at the middle of the table. Their main goal this season is to finish at the top 7 teams and if would be possible to reach the place which leads in the qualifications for Europa League. After 3 matches without win, team from Genoa woke up and smashed Verona 4-1 in the previous round, so they are looking for another three points against Empoli. Home team play very good in the attack and they scored in the almost all matches this season, but their main problem is defence. They conceded at least one goal in 10 of their last 11 matches, including friendly matches, so they have to improve their defence.

Empoli didn’t make the good start in Serie A this season and currently standing near the relegation zone with only 10 points after 9 matches. They have improved their performance and managed to win 2 of their last 3 matches, so they hope than can make positive result against Sampdoria. Visitors are not impressive in attack, but they really start playing better and scored on each of their last three matches.

Sampdoria vs Empoli Prediction

Sampdoria play very good at home this season, still without defeat (4-1-0) and they are closer to take all three points, but I can underestimate Empoli. Visitors have improved their form and could take point in Genoa. Anyway, I expect both teams to score and that’s my betting prediction for the match between Sampdoria vs Empoli.
