Our prediction for this Serie A match:
After failing to spoil Inter’s party at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Monza will look to record their first win of the season when they take on Empoli on Saturday afternoon. The Biancorossi are seen as favourites to win this match, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Empoli.
The Azzurri, meanwhile, suffered a 1-0 loss to Verona in their season opener. Considering that both Monza and Empoli are eager to give fans some cheer this weekend, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Daniel Maldini has yet to overcome a muscle injury, while both Fazzini and Walukiewicz are major doubts and the duo will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. In their last encounter in the Italian top flight Monza defeated Empoli 2-1.soon.
Highlighted Player (Mattia Destro):
Mattia Destro started his youth career at Ascoli, but in 2005 he moved to Inter. The Italian attacker, though, made his debut in the Serie A with Genoa in the 2010/2011 season. He scored 2 goals in 16 appearances for the Rossoblu and at the end of the season he signed a deal with Siena. Destro netted 12 goals for Siena in 30 league appearances for the club and on 30 July, 2012 he joined fellow Serie A team Roma for a fee of €8.5 million.
The Italian footballer made his debut for the capital club on 2 September, 2012 in a 3-1 victory over Inter. Destro scored 24 goals for Roma between 2012 and 2015 and after ending his loan spell with Milan he joined Bologna on 20 August, 2015.
Speaking of his international career, the Bologna forward has 15 caps for Italy U21 and he made his debut for the senior team on 15 August, 2012 against England at Wembley Stadium. He made Italy’s 2014 provisional FIFA World Cup squad, but he eventually failed to make the final roster.
