Empoli faces high stakes as they prepare to face the formidable Napoli on Sunday
Empoli’s recent performance in the Serie A has been far from satisfactory. After suffering a defeat against Frosinone on the road and then Atalanta at home, their run of form is anything but credible. However, they see their upcoming match against an opponent like Empoli as a golden opportunity to turn their season around.
Unfortunately, Empoli finds themselves dangerously close to the relegation zone, a position they desperately want to avoid by the end of the season. To do so, they must break free from their losing streak. Out of their last 11 matches in the Serie A, Empoli has suffered defeat in eight of them. Currently sitting in the nineteenth position with only two wins, eight losses, and one draw, they have accumulated a mere seven points in the league.
When playing away, Empoli’s struggles continue. Out of their five league matches on the road, they have managed to secure just one victory while succumbing to defeat in four games.
However, a triumph in their upcoming match could potentially boost Empoli’s points tally to 10, providing a glimmer of hope for their season.
