Empoli hosts SPAL
Empoli hosts SPAL in a match from the 33th round of the Serie A. Let’s take a look at this fixture and see what’s the situation with these two teams in our predictions football 1×2.
The situation is not good for Empoli. The team is 18th in the standings at this moment, being in the relegation zone of the league. The club is just 2 points behind the 17th Bologna, so for Empoli there are still some hopes of survivai. But in order to achieve their goal, they must improve their performance, too.
So far Empoli have a league record of 7 wins, 8 draws and 17 defeats. In terms of current form, Empoli’s last five games look like this – two wins, two losses and one draw.
In their last game Empoli faced Atalanta in Bergamo and made a 0-0 draw at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. It was a great result for the visitors, because Atalanta are a contender for a Champions League qualification.
In the same time SPAL are 13th in the league with 35 points and a record of 9 wins, 8 draws and 15 losses. At this moment SPAL are in a good position to chase survival, being on 6 points ahead of the 18th Empoli. Of course, beating Empoli on Saturday most likely would mean survival for SPAL.
In their last five games in the league SPAL are incredibly good – four wins and one loss. In their last game Leonardo Semplici’s boys achieved a prestigious 2-1 win at home over the champion Juventus. It’s true that the Old Lady played with a lot of their B players, but still – a win is a win.
These are our predictions football 1×2 for the Serie A game between Empoli and SPAL on Saturday afternoon. It’s an important game for both sides.
