Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Empoli and Venezia, the two newcomers, take on each other at Stadio Carlo Castellani in what is expected to be an entertaining game. Empoli quickly bounced back from a 3-1 loss to Lazio, with the team shocking Juventus at Allianz Arena thanks to Leonardo Mancuso’s goal. The Gli Azzurri were impressive on the break in the triumph over Juve, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to win Saturday’s clash.
Parisi remains on the sidelines with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team. The Lagunari, on the other hand, failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to Napoli (0-2) and Udinese (0-3), and they are unlikely to spoil Empoli’s party at Stadio Carlo Castellani. Maenpaa has yet to overcome his injury, but there are no suspended players in the away team.
