Empoli vs. Juventus

Serie A

Juventus 24-3-1 vs Empoli 6-7-15

Kick Off: 30 March 2019 at 10:30 pm IST

Stadium: Allianz Stadium


The international break is over, and so the Serie-a will be back on its way. Juventus will welcome Empoli for the Matchday 29. Both the team have different objectives in the remaining part of the season. While one has their different priorities now, the other team will be fighting for relegation zone. Aurelio Andreazzoli will face Massimiliano Allegri’s men for this encounter.

Juventus current form

They have been in red-hot form this season in the league which further says that they have lost one and won four in their last five games. Coming from a loss against Genoa which was their first defeat in the league they would try to turn around and become dominating as before. Despite their ace Cristiano Ronaldo who is set to miss this game following an injury in the international break, they are the clear cut favourites to win the tie. They have the huge 15 points lead at the top of the table meaning Allegri could test the young bench in this game against the 17th placed Empoli.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Douglas Costa, Sami Khedira, Juan Cuadrado all set to sit out for this clash because of injuries and hoping to get fit for the Champions League game. Mattia de Scigilio could play the game after returning to training.


Empoli current form

They have been struggling a lot in the whole season. They somehow won their last match and managed to stay at the 17th placed just one place behind the relegation zone. They are currently fighting with Bologna, Udinese and SPAL for the league finish and not enter the relegation zone. But it seems difficult for them as their last five matches resulted in two losses, two wins and a draw.

If they ever want to keep their Serie-a hope alive they need to be a lot more consistent now.

Their records against Juventus make their task more difficult. Last time when they met each other Juventus defeated Empoli by 2-1. In their previous 15 meetings, Empoli lost 13 and drew 2 and that what makes them vulnerable against the big Italy giants. The always find it as a cumbersome task when it comes to big teams.



Can Empoli outclass Juventus or will Juventus do their routine? This will be an uphill task for Empoli to beat Juventus. It would be wrong to say that this would be impossible because Juventus had just lost to Genoa so everything can happen when it comes to football and results. But as far as odds and predictions are concern Juventus would see themselves in a comfortable position. They are heavy favorites to win the match and continue their dominance in Serie-a.
