Empoli will welcome Sassuolo to Stadio Carlo Castellani for a matchday 21 fixture in Italy Serie A. The last meeting on 31st October 2021 ended in a Empoli 2-1 win. Both sides have met seventeen times in the most recent seasons. Empoli has won 4 matches, and Sassuolo triumphed in 10. Recent outings average 2.82 goals, while both teams score 59% of the time.

Empoli's latest fixture against Lazio ended in an away 3-3 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair. Empoli scored in both halves in the 6th, 8th and 75th minute.

Sassuolo's recent game against Genoa ended in a home 1-1 draw. They had more ball possession and goal-scoring opportunities but it wasn't enough to win three points. Sassuolo deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 55th minute.

So far, Empoli plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.73 points per away game on average compared to 0.83 points at home. Although Empoli is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 0% home clean sheets.

Sassuolo has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Sassuolo has collected 1.45 points on average per away game, compared to 1.08 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Sassuolo kept a clean sheet in just 0% of their visits.

The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Empoli has won just 25% of home games. On average they score 1.58 goals and concede 2.75 per game. Sassuolo is one of the best teams in the league. On paper, they have a great squad and I expect them to make life difficult for their opponent.

The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Empoli wins on average 0.83 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Sassuolo. My prediction is Sassuolo to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.95 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 95% of Empoli's home and Sassuolo's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Both sides are dangerous going forward. Empoli has scored in 83% of home games. Sassuolo is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
