Stoke City - Week 11

Empoli vs. Lazio

 

Match Date: 09 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Carlo Castellani

 

Empoli

Empoli will take all the positives from its defeat against the reigning champion, Juventus. The squad’s head honcho, Maurizio Sarri was barely saddened by the loss and instead, hailed his side’s stellar performance.

 

The Azzurri has been lingering at the bottom of the Serie A table. The loss to Juventus was Empoli’s 3rd in its last six (6) matches.

 

Lazio

Lazio’s compelling 4-2 win over Cagliari was a clear indication of the club’s eagerness to return to the European competition. This was how the team’s head honcho, Stefano Pioli described Lazio’s latest feat.

 

The online betting favorite has maintained an undefeated streak in its last six (6) matches and currently occupies the 3rd spot of the league table.

 

Prediction

Empoli 1-3 Lazio

Fiorentina vs. Napoli

 

Match Date: 09 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi

 

Fiorentina

A disappointing atmosphere lurks within Artemio Franchi after suffering a 3-1 defeat to Sampdoria. The club which featured last season seems to struggle in clinching a spot for the Europa League qualification next year. Even its manager, Vincenzo Montella was cognizant of the squad’s poor performance against La Samp.

 

 

Napoli

Napoli is definitely back to its winning ways after a  successful demolition job against AS Roma.

 

Rafel Benitez and his men just clinched a 2-0 victory over the capital club and propelled their rank to the 6th spot of the Serie A table. Prior to the said win, it can be remembered that the Partenopei had a hard time snatching wins and even lingered in the mid-table for quite some time.

 

However, with the said victory, it seemed that things will have a major turn-around.

 

Prediction

Fiorentina 1-2 Napoli
