Great form of Atalanta and quality of the opponent with problems today deserve to try on this handicap.
Empoli has only three wins in 16 rounds, only one draw arrived far from home, infact they are the worst away team with a record of 0-4-11 14/34.
More, among that òositive resluts the only one worth to note was the win against Napoli, but midweek round with Napoli that cause CL match next midweek used 3-4 four not usual starters in that match.
Guests are also the second worst away defense, away and in championship, and today will miss two key pieces in that sector, Maietta ( 18) that after a long absences returned in march and was starter in all last four matches and Silvestre ( 30). Also out, among others, Lagumina ( att. 12+10 2g), Pajac ( midf. 4+1 starter in last four rounds), Axquah ( midf, 17+6 1g) and three other players.
While guests remain third from bottom, Atalanta is only three points far from CL zone and comes from six rounds without defeats ( 4-2-0) and in three of that four wins trashed the opponents ( Bologna, Parma and Fiorentina). Only relevant miss is Toloi ( def. 20+1 1g) out since February.
In reverse fixture Empoli won 3-2, but scored winner goal only at 90° with Atalanta in ten men in last minutes and two of the scorers where Silvestre and La Gumina, both out today.
