Verona is in dire need of improvement, following its significant slip in the league table. The squad faces the pressure of ensuring its survival for the next season as it is currently at risk of being relegated. As for Empoli, the football betting favorite has managed to have a good run prior to the winter break. Technically speaking, it has nothing to worry, but it needs to step up its game if it wants to have a strong finish.

 

The story so far

Empoli

Empoli will greet the season’s 2nd half with overflowing confidence after ensuring a great run. The squad is undefeated in its last 6 matches and playing at home will definitely give them the advantage over Verona.

 

However, the only issue that the squad confronts is that many of its matches ended in an even steven finish. There’s nothing wrong with getting a point during each match, but collecting three points is much better.

 

Verona

Verona has to pay the price of its not so good performances. During its last 6 matches, the club has only won once, not to mention the three consecutive losses that it had to go through. Although the victory against Udinese was impressive, it is clear that it wasn’t enough to improve the club’s rank.

 

Currently, Verona occupies the 15th spot of the table and is just 2 notches away from the relegation zone.

 

Prediction

Empoli 1-2 Verona
