Empoli vs Genoa (By: Sangosam)
Relegation battle game here between Empoli and Genoa.
Star-man Krzysztof Piatek’s transfer to AC Milan will surely hurt.
They have just let go of one of their main weapons, and quite frankly the team would just misfire without the striker as he scored more than 50% of Genoa's goal this season.
His replacement will be Sanabria who just arrived from Betis.
The timing of Piatek's transfer is also surprising as Genoa has been struggeling lately and is now only 6 points above relegation zone.
They have lost all of their last 5 away games in serie A.
Empoli on the other side lost the "lachini effect" where he gained 10 points in his first 5 games, as they lost 4 times in a row. Nevertheless they started 2019 with a draw. The main problem for Empoli remains the defence.
Empoli will miss Maietta in defense and La Gumina in front, they will be replaced by Rasmussen and Zajc who scored 3 goals in his last 4 games.
Prandelli will very probably not take the risk of playing immediately with Sanabria and should line up Pandev next to Kouamè.
Genoa will do their best to not lose this game, as losing will very probably mean for them that they are entering the relegation battle which wasn't the case so far this season.
