In Serie A, Juventus plays Empoli on Friday at the Allianz Stadium. Both teams have had similar seasons so far. Five points behind the top six, Juventus is eighth in the league. In recent times, Massimiliano Allegri’s team has been inconsistent, losing two of their last five games in all competitions. This week, they will try to get back on track by beating Empoli.
On the other hand, Empoli is in 10th place in the table, five points behind their rivals. In recent times, Paolo Zanetti’s team has only won two of their last 11 games in all competitions. With a victory against Juventus on Friday, they will hope to turn things around. With a win, both teams want to move up the table, so this should be a fiercely-fought matchup.
During the game on Friday, neither team has been particularly strong, and this should come to the fore. Due to injuries, Angel Di Maria, Bremer, Mattia De Sciglio, Paul Pogba, and Kaio Jorge will not be able to play for Juventus. Meanwhile, Empoli is without Alberto Grassi, Ardian Ismajili, Jean-Daniel Akpa-Akpro, Lorenzo Tonelli, and Ardian Ismaili.
Juventus ought to have sufficient quality to defeat Empoli, despite their poor run of form. We predict that Juventus will prevail easily.
