Match Preview

Empoli’s three-point cushion over the Serie A (SA) relegation zone is under threat, after a run of one win in ten league games (W1, D2, L7). With a defence that has conceded more goals (48) than all sides bar one, and a failure to win 80% (20) of their 25 SA games, Empoli are in a downward spiral at the wrong time.
However, more than four-fifths of Empoli’s SA season points (17 of 21) have come at home, where five of their six losses have come against top-half sides, while four of the five wins have come against bottom-half sides.
That should worry Parma, who are winless in five SA games (D1, L4) with that sequence including defeats across their last three. Their last five SA games have seen them concede 2.6 goals per game, while their season average remains 1.48 per game, while they have conceded 29 of their 37 SA goals (78.38%) in the second half.
A majority (16) of Parma’s 29 SA points have come on the road this season, while they have lost just once in their last four road trips (W2, D1, L1). Parma can also take heart from their recent SA H2H record of six wins in ten games against Empoli (W6, D2, L2).
Players to watch: Eight of Francesco Caputo’s 11 SA goals for Empoli have come at home, whilst Juraj Kucka has one goal and two assists for Parma in SA this season, all away from home.
Stat attack: Empoli have seen over 2.5 match goals in 17 of their 25 SA games this season.
Relevantly, Parma have seen over 2.5 match goals in eight of their last ten SA away games.
In SA this season, Parma have averaged a league-low 3.68 corners per game so far.
