Empoli Double Chance

Empoli followed up their 1-0 win at home to Lecce on April 3rd with an impressive 0-0 draw AC Milan just four days later, and more points could be on offer for Paolo Zanetti’s troops when they visit Cremonese on Friday evening. The hosts have only won once at home this season, and while they won 3-2 on the road last weekend, their triumph came at the expense of the only team below them in the table, Sampdoria. Empoli look under-priced here and are well-worth backing in the double chance market.

Under 2.5 Goals

With two clean sheets on the spin, Empoli have been doing some good work defensively of late, though they did manage to score just once in their last brace of fixtures themselves, highlighting the dearth of cutting edge in their ranks. When Empoli last played Cremonese in November, just two goals hit the net, one of which was dispatched in the 88th. Margins could be just as slim in Friday’s rematch, and our second Cremonese vs Empoli prediction recommends a stake on under 2.5 goals with that in mind.

Cremonese vs Empoli News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Cremonese vs Empoli lineups and team news for Friday’s fixture below.

Cremonese

David Okereke is a doubt for Cremonese this weekend, while defender Vlad Chiriches could be in the treatment room for the next couple of weeks. Cremonese moved off the bottom of the table with their 3-2 triumph over Sampdoria last time out, though their chances of survival are still minimal.

Predicted Lineup for Cremonese: Carnesecchi – Ferrari, Bianchetti, Lochoshvili  – Ghiglione Castagnetti, Meite, Quagliata, Buonaiuto – Tsadjout, Dessers

Empoli

Goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario is listed as Empoli's only concern this week and they will take a strong squad to Cremonese this week. Empoli are still in 14th position in Serie A following their stalemate at AC Milan last weekend. Any fears about relegation have been almost completely allayed.

Predicted Lineup for Empoli: Perisan – Ebuehi, De Winter, Luperto, Parisi – Fazzini, Marin, Bandinelli – Baldanzi, Piccoli, Caputo

Player to Watch – Sebastiano Luperto

Centre-half Sebastiano Luperto was a rock at the back for Empoli in their surprise 0-0 draw at AC Milan last weekend. The 26-year-old completed an incredible 12 clearances during a dominant display and Luperto will hope to be just as effective on Friday.
