Verona vs Empoli preview, team news, betting tips & prediction – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Hellas Verona will be eager to continue an impressive run of form in the Serie A that has seen them move a little further away from a potential relegation fight. Tonight, Igor Tudor’s men take on Empoli at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
Verona have not lost in the last four Serie A games and currently sit in 10th place in the league standings. Empoli have an equal amount of points as Verona but are in 11th place due to an inferior goal difference.
Verona have proven to be one of the most entertaining teams in the Italian top flight this season and only Inter Milan (29) and AC Milan (26) have scored more goals than them (25). Tudor’s men are high on confidence at the moment and in their last four games, have defied the likes of Roma, Lazio, and Juventus while averaging roughly three goals a game.
Their away form hasn’t been the greatest but relegation worries have been taken care of due to a great record at home.
Empoli on the other hand, head into this encounter following a 2-2 draw at home to Genoa before the international break. The natives of Tuscany are also in great form and have lost just once in their four league outings.
It has to be mentioned that Aurelio Andreazzoli’s men have been very strong on the road, winning four of their five away games.
