Match Preview

Level on points with fourth-placed AC Milan ahead of the round, Atalanta come into this game on the back of an impressive run of form that has seen them remain unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions (W4, D3). Here, they face an Empoli side in desperate need of points, but who have never recorded a win at Atalanta in the top flight (D4, L4).
Atalanta have lost just once in their last eight home games (W4, D3, L1), including racing into a 4-0 lead against Bologna within 15 minutes – the first time any Serie A (SA) side has scored four so quickly since Juventus against Roma in 1932!
Goals are a theme in Atalanta league games, with the team scoring 64 goals while the 105 total goals seen in their SA matches is a league high.
Empoli sit in the relegation zone due entirely to their league worst away form which has seen them fail to win any road trip this campaign (D4, L11), and concede 2.27 goals on average per match.
What’s more, Empoli have conceded first in 73.33% of their away SA games and recorded seven HT/FT away losses this term, despite scoring more goals in the first half (eight) than in the second (six). A vulnerability in the 15 minutes before half-time when they have conceded nine goals is worth noting.
Players to watch: Atalanta’s leading scorer Duván Zapata has scored three goals in his last two games. Meanwhile, only four of Francesco Caputo‘s (EMP) last thirteen goals have been scored on the road.
Stat attack: Atalanta have scored in each of their last eleven home SA matches.
Empoli conceded 17 SA goals in each half on the road.
Empoli have conceded at least two goals in nine of their last eleven away matches in the SA.
