Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Carlo Castellani will host Saturday’s Serie A game between Empoli and Spezia, the two teams who were beaten by Roma and Napoli respectively at the weekend. The Azzurri are safe for now, with the team sitting in 11th place in the standings, while the Bianconeri’s elite division status is in great danger. All Alberto Grassi, Ardian Ismajli, Mattia Destro, and Lorenzo Tonelli are out of contention with injuries, speaking of the home side.
The visitors, on the other hand, extended their losing run to three games against the Partenopei, with the team remaining in the danger zone. Empoli are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and given Spezia’s difficulties at the back, home win should be considered. As for the away side, all Joao Moutinho, Jacopo Sala, Albin Ekdal, Viktor Kovalenko, Szymon Zurkowski, Simone Bastoni, and Jeroen Zoet miss out thorugh injuries.
