On January 16, Carlo Castellani (Empoli) will host the match of the 18th round of the Serie A, in which Empoli will compete with Sampdoria. The battle will start at 20:45 CET.

Empoli


The club is not so frequently encountered in the Calcio. In the previous season, the newcomer was able to stay in the highest division, taking a pretty comfortable 14th place. Nevertheless, its coach was replaced in the summer – the management decided to invite Paolo Zanetti. That replacement seemed to be unsuccessful, but then the team won twice in the last 3 rounds of November, raising the spirits of the fans. In winter, it is difficult to continue winning, but the “piggy bank” is replenished the points, despite the fact that both matches were away ones. First, “the Blues” did not keep the advantage in Friuli – Udinese, playing its first match after the break, got a 1-1 draw. And on Sunday, the outsider created a sensation, achieving a draw against Lazio, making a comeback after a 0-2 score in the last 10 minutes of the game. It is reasonable to mention experienced Caputo, who arrived from Sampdoria during the winter “window” – in the first 2 matches (in this team, however, he did his best in 2017-2019), the player scored a goal and made an assist.

Sampdoria


The team proved that the saying “You can't enter the same river twice” makes sense also in football. It was Giampaolo who promoted the club to the European competitions last time. Having returned during the previous season, Marco was not able to show a proper result in Genoa, and, to tell the truth, the start of the new season was failed. However, it seems that this is not only about the coach: he has been replaced by Stankovic long ago, but even with him 15 matches of the autumn part of the season were not successful – there happened the 1st victory and, as a result, the team got only 6 points. Everyone was waiting for dramatic progress after a long break. And “La Samp” started optimistically, winning in the struggle against Sassuolo with a 2-1 score. That success was not developed and in the next round the team was defeated by Napoli with the predictable 0-2 result.

The statistics of head-to-head matches


Empoli has got only 1 win in 12 previous head-to-head matches. Sampdoria has played well against this opponent, including winning both matches of the last season: pretty confident 3-0 and 2-0 victories.

Predictions


Bookmakers think that Empoli will finally win. At the same time, it is clear that Sampdoria will do its best to get the points. Thus, it is worth betting on “total: over 2.0” (odd: 1.65).
