Empoli vs Napoli

Napoli’s phenomenal away form has seen ten of those 11 Serie A road victories come after scoring first.

Empoli

In no real danger of relegation, but not threatening the top-half picture, Empoli are now just jostling for positions in the lower echelons of the Serie A table. They can be thankful for their early season form, because Empoli’s last Serie A victory came way back in December and they’ve endured a 16-match winless run since which is the longest such run of its kind across Europe’s top-five leagues! It’s hard to find many positives for Empoli, but the visit of title-chasing Napoli could strangely be a blessing given the ‘Blues’ have won the last two league H2Hs. Failure to land a third successive H2H win would edge Empoli closer to securing a strange Serie A record of becoming the only side in history to not win a game in the second half of the season but still go on to survive!

Napoli

Back-to-back winless league outings have seen Napoli slip four points off the pace in the Serie A title race, but with both Inter and AC Milan facing tricky assignments against top-seven sides this weekend, the visitors will hope they’ll get a chance to cut down that deficit, especially given they boast Serie A’s joint-best away record this season. Napoli’s phenomenal away form has seen ten of those 11 Serie A road victories come after scoring first. They are also one of just two Serie A teams not to have lost a league game on their travels having conceded first. Luciano Spalletti’s side may need another fast start here to build belief they can improve on a wretched run of just one win in their ten all-time visits to Empoli though.

 

Empoli’s Andrea Pinamonti has seen six of his last seven Serie A goals arrive after half-time, whilst similarly prolific after the break, Napoli’s Victor Osimhen has seen nine of his last ten goals come beyond the 50th minute. Napoli are one of just two Serie A teams not to have conceded an away league goal in the opening 15 minutes this season.
