This promises to be a huge season for Juventus, as they look to get back on track following a disastrous 2022-23 campaign. The Old Lady are unbeaten in their opening two matches this term, and they will be looking for a second win of the season when they come up against Empoli.
Serie A Preview
There will be pressure on Juventus this term, as there will be an expectation that they will be closer to the top of the standings after a poor campaign last term. The initial signs look promising for the Old Lady, as they are unbeaten across their opening two matches this term.
However, they weren’t able to follow up their win on the road against Udinese last weekend, as they were forced to settle for a draw at home against Bologna. Juventus were way below the standard expected, and they went behind after just 24 minutes. They were fortunate to pick up a point from the match, with Dusan Vlahovic firing the Old Lady level with just ten minutes remaining.
Empoli will be disappointed with the start to the season that they have made, as they already sit in the bottom three places in the Serie A standings after losing each of their opening three matches. They are one of three teams yet to find the back of the net, and they have already allowed three goals.
The Italian side gave a good account of themselves last weekend, but their match against Monza was taken away from them in the space of eight second half minutes. But, Empoli were unfortunate not to find the back of the net as they attempted 18 shots.
Empoli vs Juventus Head to Head
Juventus have won ten of the previous 12 encounters between these two sides. Empoli have picked up just two victories over the same period. However, one of those wins was recorded in this exact fixture last season, as they secured a stunning 4-1 home victory over the Old Lady.
Empoli vs Juventus Prediction
Empoli will still have fond memories of the previous clash between these two sides. However, they haven’t started the season well enough to suggest that they could record maximum points this weekend. Therefore, we will be siding with Juventus landing victory in a low-scoring affair between the sides.
