Empoli vs Chievo (By: Sangosam)
A serie og 5 losses and a draw in past six league outings saw Azzurri slide down to 17th place in the standings. They are now just 3 points above the danger area and this game might be already a last chance for the coach lachini.
Chievo on the other side Gialloblu only have theoretical chances to stay in Seria A next year. They are rock bottom with only eight points, 9 points from safety. This is why success in Empoli would be of a massive importance for Domenico Di Carlo’s troops.
Empoli shipped two late goals to lose 1-3 the home fixture against bottom-half rivals Genoa on Monday evening. They are really struggling to keep things tight at the back. The team allowed three or more goals in four of past six league affairs.
Also Empoli conceded a goal in 19 of the 21 games played so far!
Chievo also lacked meticulousness at the back in their recent outings. They shipped 7 goals in back-to-back defeats to Juventus and Fiorentina. They played a crazy seven-goal thriller win 10 man Fiorentina last Sunday. Azzuri came back on level terms from a two-goal deficit. They then concede two goals, missed one penalty and scored one goal to lose 3-4 eventually.
After January transfers, Chievo conceded Radovanovic e Birsa which make them even more vulnerable.
A draw here would mean nothing to either teams, expect many goals and a probably a winner.
