Empoli are a team that I have been impressed with this season. This team has grinded out draws, they have played with a lot of heart and results have shown this. This weekend they will be up against one of the best teams in Europe as a rampant Napoli side will be hosting them.
Napoli have been winning non-stop this season and in the form they are in, I think that they are favorited to win the league. This team is well balanced in the middle, solid at the back and has a really good goal scorer. To be honest I think that if they were playing Champions League this season, they would be giving the top teams a real run for their money. That being said they are not so the league is now their main goal which is trouble for all the other teams.
Empoli will want to cause an upset here but I think that it is very unlikely. This team has heart but they are outclassed and I think that they will lose a noble defeat here.
As far as betting is concerned, I think that taking over 2.5 goals is the best bet here. This weekend we have been taking this bet a lot since I think we are getting great value. Normally is Serie A we are betting taking the under but with Napoli at home, it is more than likely that they will score 3 goals or more themselves. This bet gets us a pretty good price, especially in Italy, so I am going to take it as my pick for this match
