It has been a strange season for Empoli who have surprisingly fared better on the road than at home. Up next is a clash against troubled Genoa in Serie A and they will be looking to end a recent poor run at the Stadio Carlo Castellani.

Empoli fought back from a goal down to claim a 2-1 victory over Sassuolo in their previous Serie A fixture. Lorenzo Tonelli put through his own net two minutes before the break while late efforts from Andrea Pinamonti and Szymon Zurkowski sealed the win.

It was the second win in three matches for Empoli, who have now moved to within three points of the European places. Both wins have come on the road and the challenge for manager Aurelio Andreazzoli will be to bring some of that form into their home matches.

Empoli head into Friday’s clash with defeats in their last two home matches. They will hope for a repeat of the performance that saw them claim a 4-2 victory over Bologna in their only victory at the Stadio Carlo Castellani this season.

It has been a poor start to the season for Genoa, who have claimed just one win from their 11 matches so far. They have spent much of the campaign near the relegation zone and are only above the bottom three on goal difference.

Genoa travel to Empoli without a win in their last eight Serie A matches, they have played out five draws in that run, including a 0-0 scoreline with Venezia last time out. Davide Ballardini’s men have also lost two of their last three away matches.

One of the problems for Genoa this season has been a vulnerable backline. They have conceded 13 goals in their six away matches this season.

How the bookies view it

Empoli are considered overwhelming favourites for the win at 9/8 with Vbet while a victory for Genoa is priced at 12/5 with betway. A draw is set at odds of 11/4 with bet365.

Head to head

Players to watch

Andrea Pinamonti has been the man in form for Empoli and has scored three goals in his last four Serie A matches. The striker was also on target last time out against Sassuolo and is priced at 2/1 by Paddy Power to find the net.

Mattia Destro will be the one to watch for Genoa as he looks to add to his six Serie A goals. Skybet has the striker at odds of 9/5 to score anytime on Friday.
