In a meeting of the fifth round of the Serie ?, the team of Empoli is going to welcome Atalanta. This is the latest date in the intermediate range, before which Empoli was on the 14th position, while Atalanta is on the 12th place. Here is our soccer forecast.
Empoli and Atalanta started the season poorly and for the past four rounds, both teams managed to have only one victory. The home team is pretty desperate right now and it will be one of the major teams that will fight for survival in the current season. The team, managed by Marco Dzampaolo is one of the worst defenses in the League and earned per game in at least two goals at their door. In the past fourth round of the Serie A, Empoli had its first win as a guest since the beginning of the campaign, after beating Udinese with 1:2 with a fair amount of luck - defeated goal in the 92nd minute and kicked a man from Udinese.
Atalanta allowed only one loss so far, but far from home, the team is not too convincing. This is probably the only problem of Atalanta in the upcoming duel, though the team is much classier than Empoli and owns several good players into the face of Hermann Dennis, Raimondi, Morales, Stendardo and others.
Against each other Empoli and Atalanta have played a lot of times as the latter four of which we`ve seen dominance of Empoli - 2 draws and 2 wins. Their last meeting here ended in a goalless draw, but history remembers a fairly effective fight, as we expect to be present.
Our soccer prediction adviced by sport-tips.net is over 2.5 goals.
