Juventus will be looking to keep the hopes of a first Serie A title in four years alive when they host relegation candidates Empoli this weekend.

The hosts have been almost flawless this season. After winning many Serie A titles under Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus decided it was time to offer the fans entertaining football and European titles, not just Scudettos. The board brought in the likes of Maurio Sarri and Andrea Pirlo, but it didn't work out, and they decided to go back to their old servant Allegri. The Old Lady have had their problems since the 56-year-old took charge in 2021, but they are currently flying high, just one point behind league leaders Inter.

Empoli were promoted from the second division at the end of the 2020-21 season and have remained in Serie A ever since. Aurelio Andreazzoli's side finished last season four places above the red zone, but things are not looking good at the moment as the team lie in the bottom three.

Juventus vs Empoli Betting Tips: Under 2.5 goals

Defending has been Juventus' greatest strength this season, especially on home soil. The Old Lady finished six of their last eight home games in the league without conceding a goal and just as many games with under 2.5 goals.

Empoli only have one clean sheet in their last three games, but the Gli Azzurri do not concede many goals away from home. The visitors have conceded under 1.5 goals in four of their last five fixtures on the road and the same number of games have ended with under 2.5 goals.

  • Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals
  • Juventus vs Empoli prediction: 2-0

Empoli team news

Empoli coach Davide Nicola will resist the temptation to reshuffle the side that gave him his side their first win in nine games last time out.

With his hat-trick in that game, Szymon Żurkowski has now scored ten Serie A goals for the club and should retain his place in midfield, while Alberto Cerri and Nicolò Cambiaghi will form the front two.
