Two teams whose future in Italy's top flight is still uncertain meet this weekend as Udinese play host Empoli.

The hosts finished each of their last two seasons in Serie A six places above the relegation, but things look very tight at the moment. Fabio Cannavaro’s side sit just one point above the bottom three and have just two games left to play. However, I Bianconeri have one of the best forms of the sides in the bottom six at the moment, as Udinese are unbeaten in their last three fixtures.

Empoli meanwhile are separated from the safe zone by only goal difference. The visitors were last in action last weekend, when they travelled to the Stadio Olimpico to take on European football chasers Lazio. Davide Nicola’s side suffered a defeat and failed to score for the second successive game. They will be looking to turn things around this weekend, but their recent record on the road has been very poor – four defeats in their last four away games.

Udinese vs Empoli Betting Tips: Under 2.5 goals

Given the importance of this game for both sides, it’s only fair to expect a close contest. Udinese boast just one clean sheet from their last thirteen matches, but they don’t concede many goals, as more than half of those fixtures ended with under 2.5 goals.

Goals have been scares for Empoli in recent weeks. The visitors boast just one goal from their last five league matches and things don’t also look good away from home when it comes to hitting the back of the net. Davide Nicola’s side failed to score in each of their last five away games and none of those encounters produced more than two goals.

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals
  • Udinese vs Empoli prediction: 1-1
