In their last match Empoli registered a 2:1 away defeat versus Sassuolo in the Serie A on April 30. Empoli is currently on a fruitless streak of three losing matches, and the team has not recorded a victory in any of the last four games. In Empoli’s last 10 encounters, being the host or playing away was not really a factor that affected the outcome. The teams playing on home ground recorded 5 triumphs and the guests recorded 3. Just 2 of the last 10 games of the club ended in draws. Two of the last five encounters produced over 2.5 goals and one witnessed goals at both ends. In the course of that period, Empoli did not concede on two occasions. At the same time they failed to score a goal in three matches. The previous five meetings of the team ended with a total of 8 goals.

Bologna previously faced Juventus on Sunday and the final score was a 1:1 draw at home. The team is on a dry run, without tasting success in three games, suffering 1 loss and registering 2 draws in the process. The home crowd, usually referred to as the “12th player”, has failed to signficantly impact Bologna’s recent ten meetings, as they ended in 4 home wins and 2 away wins. Looking at the team’s previous five encounters, it becomes apparent that two featured over 2.5 goals and three witnessed goals at both ends. Throughout these, Bologna’s efforts paid off as the team managed to prevent goals in their net two times and they scored a minimum of one goal in all five. Over the course of the team’s previous five clashes, the sides scored an average of 2.4 goals.
