Fiorentina vs Empoli
I watched Fiorentina against Sassuolo and against Juventus. They have goals in them what they proved against Sassuolo but also in game against Juventus they were really dangerous even though they didn't manage to score. Fiorentina is currently on a run without a win for 8 games, all the way back when they won 2:0 against Atalanta. With a win they would jump 6 spots on the table all the way to European places just under Lazio. I believe this is the right moment and right opponent.
Empoli is surely dangerous and their topscorer Caputo is hot but somehow I doubt they will continue to score 2 goals a game all the time, it has to stop sometimes. They will probably score again but I believe that their offensive and open football will be punished by Fiorentina today. Empoli collected points in last 4 games but before that they were losing a lot. They lost to all stronger opponents they meet before - Juventus 1:2, Roma 0:2, Napoli 5:1, Sassuolo 3:1. I am not saying that Fiorentina is better than these teams but I believe they are slightly better team than Empoli. They played 2:1 against Inter in Milano, 1:0 in Naples, 1:1 with Roma at home and yes they lost big time to Juventus but hey it is Juve and as I said they had plenty of chances to score.
It is time for Fiorentina to pick up 3 points and Empoli go home empty handed.
I see 3:1 result in this game.
