Juventus and Empoli will face each other in Serie A this weekend. The match will be held at Allianz Stadium and is scheduled to kick off at 7:45pm UK time on Saturday.

Juventus

Juventus failed to win Serie A last season, as bitter rivals Inter Milan won the Scudetto. The Bianconeri actually had to struggle to finish even in the top four and were nowhere near challenging Inter for the title for weeks.

Massimiliano Allegri is now back in charge of the Juventus, but the Italian tactician could not guide the Bianconeri to a win in their opening league game of the season. Juventus had to settle for a 2-2 draw with Udinese away from home in Serie A last weekend.

Team News:

Adrien Rabiot is available, and Weston McKennie is back from suspension.

Empoli

Empoli are playing in Serie A this season after winning automatic promotion from Serie B at the end of the last campaign. They actually won the Serie B title last season and will be hoping to avoid relegation back to the second tier of Italian football.

Aurelio Andreazzoli’s side, though, have not made a positive start to the season. Empoli lost 3-1 to Lazio at home in their opening Serie A game of the season last weekend.

Team News:

Patrick Cutrone with Leonardo Mancuso are set to start upfront.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Juventus have won three of their last five competitive games.
  • Empoli have won four of their last six competitive games.
  • Juventus have lost one and drawn one of their last five competitive matches.
  • Empoli have lost two of their six competitive matches.

Conclusion

Empoli are one of the favourites to go down to Serie B, and Juventus are a far superior team. It is very likely that the former Italian champions will pick up all three points from the encounter.

Prediction: Juventus to win 3-0

Best Odds: 7/1
