Milan vs. Empoli Predictions and Preview

Milan have started to recover form with consecutive league wins after just two victories in their previous eight in that run, while six of those games have ended in draws.

Empoli defeated Sassuolo 3-0 last time out to end a run of eight games without a win in Serie A, allowing them to distance themselves from the drop zone.

Giuseppi Iachini’s side are three points clear of Bologna and the relegation places in the Italian top flight.

It is not surprising that it is the home side who are favourites to win this encounter at odds of 4/11, with Empoli priced at 17/2 and the draw available at 19/5.

These fixtures tend to produce a lot of goals with 14 going in across the last four meetings, so with this in mind over 3.5 goals at 9/5 appears to be a solid bet with over 2.5 at 7/10.

A ‘double chance’ on Empoli to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 9/4 while a Milan win/draw outcome is at 1/25.

If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 10/11.
