Our prediction for this Serie A match:
After suffering a shocking 2-1 loss to rock-bottom Hellas Verona in midweek, Atalanta will be looking to start a new winning run in Serie A when they take on Empoli at their Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. The Orobici are eyeing their first win of the new year and it remains to be seen if they are capable of putting an end to their eight-match winless run. Edoardo Reja’s men are desperate to put an end to the negative trend and seeing that Empoli suffered a heavy 5-1 loss to Napoli in their last away game, there is a certain value in betting on the home team this time out. Atalanta recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over the Azzurri when the two sides met at Stadio Carlo Castellani earlier this season, meaning that home win is on the horizon. Rafael Toloi scored the winner for the Orobici in the reverse fixture.
