EMPOLI VS ATALANTA PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Empoli has had a good start to this season but is gradually showing the right form of a newly promoted team. Gli Azzurri’s performance in the last 5 matches is not good when despite winning 2 matches, they have lost in the remaining 3 matches.
After 2 consecutive victories, Empoli had a trip to AS Roma’s field. In front of a completely superior opponent, Gli Azzurri, despite trying hard, still had to lose 0-2 in the end. The fourth defeat this season leaves Empoli in the middle of the table with only 9 points after 7 matches.
In recent times, Atalanta has performed better than at the beginning of the season. The proof is that in the last 5 matches, la Dea won 3 matches and received only 1 defeat. In addition, they only drew 1 match on the field of defending champion Inter Milan.
However, in the 7th round of Serie A, Atalanta lost at home. Welcoming AC Milan, La Dea, although attacking more, received 3 goals. Although they tried very hard in the last minutes, they only got 2 goals and accepted a 2-3 defeat. This is already the second defeat this season and Atalanta has dropped to 8th place with 11 points.
Empoli and Atalanta in the past have only had a total of 20 confrontations since 1997 now. It can be seen that Empoli’s performance is worse with only 5 victories, but Atalanta is only marginally better with 6 times to fully enjoy the fun. Notably, there were 9 matches between the two teams that ended in a draw.
In the 2018/2019 season, despite being relegated, Empoli had a good record against Atalanta. They won 3-2 in the first leg and drew 0-0 away in the second leg. Empoli’s win rate is 50% while Atalanta’s win rate is 67%. According to experts, Atalanta is much more appreciated than Empoli.

The scoring record of Empoli and Atalanta in the past 20 encounters is extremely balanced. Specifically, there were a total of 36 goals scored by both teams and the number of goals was divided equally between both sides, ie each side got 18 goals.
However, Empoli’s attack in Serie A is currently having a bad record. After 7 rounds, they have only 9 goals, ie the performance is only 1.28 goals/match. Worse, the defense of Gli Azzurri is lacking the necessary certainty when they have conceded 12 goals. This result makes up to 5 out of 7 matches played out.
Despite owning a “top” attack in recent seasons in Serie A, Atalanta’s strikers this season are not in really good form. Specifically, they only got 10 goals after 7 rounds, averaging only 1.42 goals/game, a very modest number in Serie A. Besides, Atalanta’s defense with 9 goals is also showing loose.
