Empoli vs Genoa Preview
Empoli haven’t lost three Serie A home matches in a line since March 2017, and a struggling Genoa side offers a decent chance to keep that record.
A win is necessary for Empoli, who begin this round just three points over the relegation zone with just one point in five league games (D1, L4). They have the second-worst defence in the league (39 conceded), with 13 conceded in their last five only.
Genoa are just three points above Empoli and have just one league win since October 2018 (W1, D5, L8). The visitors have the league’s fourth-worst defensive record (37 conceded) and could yield even further after the separation of Krzysztof Piątek, who accounted for 52% of their league goals (13 of 25).

Empoli vs Genoa Prediction
If we don’t look back at history, we should expect a match fully with goals. In front of their own fans, Empoli have seen more than 2.5 goals in five out of 10 games, while Genoa away from home have seen 3+ goals in 7 from 9 games.
Decent attacks meet weak defences, that is why goals should be expected here.
