Editorial prediction for Juventus vs Empoli on Oct. 21, 2022

Dusan Vlahovic is still Massimiliano Allegri's main hope for salvation: the Serbian striker is baking on the bench, decided the result in the Turin derby (1-0) and scored his seventh goal of the season! But Juve's performance problems are not over. Empoli arrives in Turin on Friday: the first leg of the 11th Serie A match will start on Oct. 21 at 9:45 p.m.

Juventus vs. Empoli:

Juventus (3-5-2): Schensny - Sandro, Bonucci, Danilo - Cuadrado, Locatelli, McKennie, Rabiot, Kostic - Vlahovic, Milik.

Will not play: De Chillo, Ake, Pogba, Di Maria, Bremer (all injured)

Empoli (4-3-1-2): Vicario - Stojanovic, Luperto, de Winter, Parisi - Haas, Henderson, Bandinelli - Baldanzi - Destro, Satriano

Will not play: Akpa-Akpro, Ismaily, Grassi (all - injuries)

Referee: Michael Fabbri

This season the referee has refereed seven games: total average ZK - 4.43, fouls - 22.83.

Juventus vs Empoli statistical preview:

Juventus' average home goal is 3, Empoli's away goal is 2. You can bet on TM (3.5) for 1.37.

The average number of offsides by Juventus' home players is 2.86, Empoli's away players are caught offside 0.8 times per game. It is possible to bet on the home team winning in case of offside. 

Juventus-Empoli match prediction:

Let's start with statistics. We believe that Empoli will receive more GKs in this match. The total average for the Blues is 2.4 GKs. The Turin team has drawn more than one GK only in close games against Roma and Salernitana (1-2 and 2-2). The Turin team has never won at home so far, with three defeats and two draws, while its average is as many as 1.4 GKs per game. We do not expect a close game on Friday. Therefore, LCP2 is definitely worth considering. 

Juventus scored as many as 2.34 xG against Torino, the team showed well in conditions where the opponent did not close in on their own half. Against Empoli, however, it will have to prove its ability in positional attack, and here the Bianconeri's problems have only worsened with Di Maria's injury: it is not for nothing that Juve ranks 17th in terms of actions in the opponent's third (44.17%). Nor should we expect brave soccer from the Blues: their percentage is just 41.19 and they average one away goal per game. In addition, we have to consider that Juve has a crucial game against Benfica in the Champions League on Tuesday. 

We think that the opening match of the 11th round will not be full of goals and suggest taking the team to a TM (3) for 1.56.
