In the 23rd round of Serie A, Fiorentina and Empoli will square off in a Derby Arno, and all eyes will be on Stadio Artemio Franchi. Even if the Viola have only earned one point in their past five league games, they are more than capable of competing with Empoli in front of their own supporters.
On the other side, the Azzurri enter the local derby after a 2-2 tie with Spezia. While Mattia Destro and Lorenzo Tonelli are likely to miss the game due to injury, Fabiano Parisi is suspended for the contest. At Stadio Carlo Castellani, the two teams played to a scoreless draw during the first half of the season.
Both teams have had a mixed start to 2023 overall, so neither is coming into this match in good shape. The worst of the two teams’ recent runs has been Fiorentina’s, which includes back-to-back Serie A losses and only one point in their previous five league games. Empoli does not fare much better, with just one away win since September and two points from their previous three Serie A games.

Goals have also been hard to come by for both teams. In their last five games, Fiorentina have only scored twice, compared to four goals in four away games for Empoli in 2023. In just one of Fiorentina’s previous five league games, both teams had scored more than 2.5 goals at the end of regulation. Only two of the five games with over 2.5 goals in which Empoli participated ended in draws.
Even though Fiorentina has resumed play in the European Conference League, the team is having trouble finding its positive side. Yet, since October, they have only had one home league blank since then. We could see a low-scoring, slowly paced affair because neither team appears to have the firepower to seriously hinder the other in this match.
