On May 8, Stadio Carlo Castellani (Empoli) will host the match of the 34th round of the Serie A, in which Empoli will compete with Salernitana. The battle will start at 18:30 CET.
The club spends only the second season in a row in the Calcio. So far, it is satisfied with the fact that it, with the highest probability, will not be the last one in the standings. There were disputes when Andreazzoli, who had been able to keep the “registration” for the newcomer in Serie A, was replaced from the coaching position last summer. Nevertheless, Paolo Zanetti, having got enough points with his wards by May, managed to be a decent substitution. A month ago, “the Blues” beat Lecce and achieved a 0-0 draw at the arena of Milan that seemed to be a final calm-down – they started to lose to everyone in a row in an Italian manner. For instance, there happened the defeats made by Inter and Sassuolo, and even by easy-going Cremonese at the home arena. There is no surprise that the team beat Bologna with a confident 3-1 score.
The team saved itself in an incredible style a year ago – however, then, in 2022, Davide Nicola demonstrated his “trademark” football miracle with another Serie A newcomer-outsider. Then, as it often happens to him, he did not work for even a year after that. Still, it is reasonable to recognize that his dismissal benefited. Paulo Souza, who replaced the higher mentioned extraordinary specialist, refused to lose with his new wards. A long streak brought “the Seahorses” the points in the battles against Milan and Inter, and even prevented Napoli from celebrating the long-awaited Scudetto already in April, achieving a 1-1 draw at San Paolo. During the match with Fiorentina the team led the game three times in a row, but everything resulted in a draw. Maybe, there was no strength to achieve more. Although it managed to extend the streak for one more round – will it be possible further?
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Generally speaking, Empoli is more successful in the head-to-head matches. Still, both previous battles brought the draws – a 1-1 equality in the previous season and a 2-2 result in the current one.
Bookmakers give preference to Empoli, which plays at the home arena. Still, taking into account the shape of Salernitana under the rule of the current coach, we believe that the guests will not lose again (odd: 1.68).
