AC Milan play their final game in Serie A in 2021 on Wednesday evening, as they look for a final victory to put pressure on their local rivals at the top of the standings. Empoli will be looking to maintain their strong form over the past couple of weeks.
Serie A Preview
AC Milan fans will still be dreaming of a title challenge in the 2021-22 season, and they are still very much in the hunt for the league title. They find themselves four points off the lead at this stage of the season, having dropped points in each of their last two fixtures, and three of their previous five. Milan have gone two without a win ahead of this fixture on the road.
They were beaten for just the third time this season in their most recent fixture, which was also their second defeat in five fixtures. It was a narrow loss in their last fixture, as they were beaten 1-0 at the San Siro by Napoli. The visitors scored early in that game, before Milan struggled to break their rivals down, managing just two shots on target in the whole game.
Empoli are sitting pretty in the middle of the standings at this stage of proceedings. Much of that is due to the recent strong form that they have shown in their last five games. During that run, they have won three times, and drawn on two occasions. A win on Wednesday night could see them go up to eighth in the standings.
The confidence should be high in the Empoli camp, but they were held in their most recent fixture in Serie A by Spezia. Empoli were able to get a point from the game courtesy of a late own goal with 20 minutes remaining.
Empoli vs AC Milan Head to Head
AC Milan are unbeaten in two against Empoli. However, they have won just once in the last three fixtures, with that victory coming at the San Siro last season. Empoli’s last win came away from home in April 2017 against Milan.
Empoli vs AC Milan Prediction
Empoli will be a tough side to beat for Milan on Wednesday, as they have shown some great form over their last five fixtures. However, Milan need to bounce back following defeat last weekend, and we expect them to scrape a 1-0 win on the road this week.
