Siena vs Empoli by JerryDrake
Tip based on Asian handicap. Not familiar with handicaps? Read our Asian handicap betting guide
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.
