Here are our predictions for Empoli vs Atalanta.

*Odds from NetBet are subject to change

Atalanta to Win

Atalanta have picked up three wins and just one defeat from their last six encounters with Empoli, and we're backing the visitors to outclass their hosts and secure all 3pts on Sunday. Empoli have done well this season but have lost three of their last five league games, while Atalanta have won three of their last five games in all competitions.

BTTS – No

We're not expecting both teams to score in Sunday's game as only two of the last six meetings between these two clubs have ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard. Only two of Empoli's last five outings have seen both teams score and the host shave failed to score in two of their last four league games. Atalanta, on the other hand, have scored in each of their last six matches, keeping two clean sheets in the process.

Under 3.5 Goals

Only one of the last six head-to-heads between Empoli and Atalanta have produced over 3.5 goals, so you can see why we're backing no more than three goals to be scored this weekend. Under 3.5 goals have been produced in five of Empoli's last six matches, as well as in three of Atalanta's last five outings.

Atalanta are the favourites to secure all 3pts at the Stadio Carlo Castellani

Empoli travelled to Roma before the international break, where two goals on either side of half-time lead to a 2-0 win for the home side. Pellegrini and Mkhitaryan scored the Roma goals and Empoli lost Pinamonti to an injury just before the half-hour mark. Following that result, Empoli sit 10th in the Serie A table, so it hasn't been a bad start for one of the division's new boys.

Atalanta played host to high-flying AC Milan last time out but ended up on the wrong end of a 3-2 scoreline. The hosts found themselves 3-0 down in the 78th-minute but did begin to mount a comeback through a Zapata penalty in the 86th-minute and a stoppage-time goal from Pasalic but sadly there wasn't enough time for an equaliser. A win this weekend could take Atalanta into the top 5, where many people believed they would end this season. The quality in the visitor's squad suggests that they should win this weekend and really should be challenging for the Champions League places.

Team News

Empoli: the main concern for the home side this weekend is Andrea Pinamonti who is dealing with a hamstring injury.

Atalanta: Berat Djimsiti, Matteo Pessina, Robin Gosens and Hans Hateboer could all miss the trip to Empoli through injury.
