Siena vs Empoli by JerryDrake

Tip based on Asian handicap. Not familiar with handicaps? Read our Asian handicap betting guide
Siena are placed 12th with 35 points but they still have chances to reach the playoffs. Without the 7 points penalty they received at the start of the season they would now be at 3rd place. Empoli are 2nd with 45 points and the best away record in Serie B: 7-2-4 (16/10). In their home games Siena obtained the same number of points as leaders Palermo: 27 points obtained with 8 wins, 3 draws and only 2 defeats.


In the new year Siena have suffered only one defeat in Bari while they drew all other away games (0-0 in Crotone and 2-2 in Terni) and won both home games with Novara and Juve Stabia, both 1-0.


Empoli scored only 4 goals in the 5 games played this year: 2-1 defeat in Latina, 1-1, 0-0 and again 1-1 draws with Palermo at home, in Trapani and with Carpi at home, and a 1-0 win in Padova.


As for every derby, this Tuscan derby has a high probability to finish in a draw. The last two derbies finished 0-0 and in the last 8 derbies there has been only one team scoring. This means: the teams which takes the lead wins. I always liked Siena when I saw them playing and I think that they can defeat Empoli.
