Empoli and Sampdoria will meet at the Stadio Carlo Castellani on Monday night for the 18th round of Serie A.
Empoli are sitting 14t on the League table, and they are coming off straight two draws in the 2023. Before that, they have claimed a 2-0 win over Cremonese, which has been their third victory in the last ten rounds. However, they have some defensive issues as there has been only three clean sheets in the last ten rounds.
Sampdoria have been struggling lately. They were eliminated from the Coppa Italia by a 0-2 home loss to Fiorentina, and they have also lost to Napoli 0-2 in the League, which has been their sixth defeat in the last eight rounds. In their last 10 league matches, they’ve failed to score in 7 of them and conceded two or more goals in 6 of those games.
Empoli have won three of their last four home League matches, so I believe they have confidence to beat the struggled Sampdoria.
1X2 Pick: 1
