Our match prediction:
Sampdoria were ten minutes away from their third straight league triumph, but Vincent Laurini headed in a free-kick from Mario Rui to secure a point for Empoli (1-1). La Samp are now six points away from the red zone, but could level on points with Chievo in the overall standings provided they record a victory in the upcoming clash. The Mussi Volanti can thank their woodwork for sharing the spoils with Milan at Bentegodi. Fabrizio Cacciatore fired one behind Abbiati in the final minute of the match, but the flag ruined his celebration. Rolando Maran’s charges have been rather successful against Vincenzo Montella’s men on home soil of recent, with a single defeat in their last five encounters. However, the team from Verona have been blowing hot and cold in front of their supporters of late. I Blucerchiati have improved their performances on their travels, which is why we predict that a draw is the most suitable result for this football match.
