Our football match prediction:
Tuesday’s football game at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia pits together Atalanta and Empoli. The Orobici aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the Serie A and a victory over the Azzurri would see the hosts retain their place in top six. Atalanta have been producing fine performances in the first half of the season and we predict that they will put icing on the cake with a win over Empoli. It has to be noted that the Orobici recorded four wins in previous five home fixtures in the league. The Azzurri, on the other hand, gave fans some cheer at the weekend, with the team beating Cagliari in front of home fans and thanks to the triumph the team moved away from the relegation zone. Empoli are five points clear of bottom three, but they need to produce fine displays on regular basis if they are to secure yet another top flight survival.
