Betting prediction:

The most likely scenario is that Empoli will win the match with more or less effort and will stay in first place. The team led by Alessio Dionisi must assume the match and have the best goal opportunities. On the other hand, the visitors must adopt a more defensive mentality in search of the opponent’s mistake to capitalize on a goal, which can translate into three points. Having said that and taking into account these factors, betting in favor of the hosts is a worthwhile option.

The team led by Alessio Dionisi should be in a 4-4-2 formation, favoring defensive organization and counterattacks, mostly guided by the wings. The two most advanced players, tasked with creating problems in the opponent’s area are Leonardo Mancuso, Andrea La Mantia and Ndim Bajrami. As far as the midfield is concerned, it must be formed by Nicolas Haas, Leo Stulac and Giovanni Crociata. For this game, the home team coach has all the players available.
