Napoli hosts Empoli
Napoli hosts Empoli in a first match from the 11th round of the Italian Serie A. Let’s take a look at this clash in our vip soccer predictions today.
Napoli are currently 3rd in the Serie A with 22 points won so far. Carlo Ancelotti’s team is trailing on 6 points behind the champion and current leader Juventus. The Azzurri have a record of 7 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats since the start of the campaign.
Right now Napoli are not as consistent as they would like. They won three of their last five fixtures in the Serie A, but also made one draw and suffered one defeat. This is the reason why Napoli were overtaken by Inter at the 2nd place. They are on par with the Nerazzurri, but Inter are having better goal difference.
In their last fixture Napoli made a 1-1 draw during the home game against Roma at the Stadio San Paolo. Stephan El Shaarawy opened the score for Roma, but Dries Mertens equalized for Napoli in the last minutes of the game. The home team was very close to lose this one, so Ancelotti’s boys got lucky to score a goal in the dying moments of the game.
Empoli are in the relegation zone of the Serie A, being 18th with just 6 points won so far. The team have a modest record of 1 win, 3 draws and 6 defeats. In their last five matches Empoli are without a win – two draws and three losses.
In the team’s last fixture Empoli suffered a 1-2 defeat at home against Juventus. Francesco Caputo opened the score for Empoli, but Juve won the game with two goals from the superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
