Juventus Team News

In the current season, a club with such a reputation as Juventus is playing very badly. In Serie A, after 10 rounds played, they achieved only 4 victories and with 16 points they occupy only 8th place in the table. Even in the group stage of the Champions League, the chances of passing to the next round of the competition are almost reduced to the realm of theory.

For financial reasons, the club has not yet resigned from coach Massimiliano Allegri, but it is only a matter of time when that will happen. After losing against Milan in the big Italian derby, and then to Maccabi in the Champions League, the Old Lady finally won against city rival Turin with a minimal 1:0 with goal by Dušan Vlahović in the last part of the match.

Empoli Team News

On the other hand, coach Paolo Zanetti can be satisfied with his team’s performance in Serie A so far. Empoli is playing solidly and with 11 points they are currently in 10th place, which is only two positions below their next rival Juventus.

In the last round, they won against Monza at their stadium with a score of 1-0 with goal from Nicolas Haas in the opening moments of the match, and what is important is that they managed to keep the advantage until the very end of the match. It was the second victory of the Empoli.

H2H

Since 2017, Juve and Empoli have met 5 times. The team from Turin won 4 times and Empoli only once.

Expected lineups

Juventus (3-5-2): Wojciech Szczesny – Alex Sandro – Leonardo Bonucci – Danilo – Adrien Rabiot – Manuel Locatelli – Weston McKennie – Juan Cuadrado – Filip Kostić – Dušan Vlahović – Arkadiusz Milik

Empoli (4-3-1-2): Guglielmo Vicario – Petar Stojanović – Koni De Winter – Sebastiano Luperto – Fabiano Parisi – Nicolas Haas – Razvan Marin – Filippo Bandinelli – Tomaso Baldanzi – Mattia Destro – Martin Satriano

Juventus vs. Empoli Prediction

Juventus have the third best defense in Serie A with 7 goals conceded in 10 matches played, while Empoli, on the other hand, have only scored 9 goals in as many matches.

Two of the previous three duels between Juventus and Empoli ended with only one goal scored in the match, so we expect that this duel on Friday will also have a poor outcome.
