Empoli embarks on their third consecutive season in the upper echelons of Italian football, with indications suggesting that their primary objective will once again revolve around avoiding demotion to a lower division. The Azzurri have suffered two consecutive defeats in their first two games, and the impending visit of Juventus does not augur well for their prospects.
The team led by Paolo Zanetti has not yet managed to score a goal, experiencing defeat against a resurgent Hellas Verona team and subsequently losing to Monza in their most recent match. Given the absence of crucial individuals, the situation for Empoli may potentially deteriorate further prior to any potential improvement.
The ability of the home team to penetrate Maxi Allegri’s defensive strategy on Sunday is challenging to ascertain, making a victory without conceding goals for the visiting team the most probable result.
Now that Allegri has both Federico Chiesa and Duan Vlahovi available, the two are starting to work well together on the field. Since they have both scored to start the season, the odds are excellent that one of them will score at the Stadio Carlo Castellani.
Even though Leonardo Bonucci is a club veteran, Allegri is sure that he will not be playing for his team this year. Meanwhile, last time out, Juve barely avoided a loss to Bologna, but they are still undefeated and should remain so after this weekend’s game.
Since Elia Caprile’s season-opening injury, Paolo Zanetti has been playing without his starting center back Daniel Maldini and is likely to continue playing with backup goalkeeper Samuele Perisan.
Max Allegri should feel confident sending out the same starting lineup this weekend in hopes of bringing home three points against Empoli. Goal scorers Chiesa and Vlahovi will be counted on to add to their current totals.
