Milan and Empoli give the start of round 25 of the Italian Serie A. Both sides won their games last weekend and will want to continue with new three points. Rossoneri recorded a crucial victory over Atalanta with 3-1 which kept their fourth place in the standings. At this time, significant competition for their position are Roma, which are just one point behind them.
Empoli are three points ahead of the relegation zone, thanks to the 3-0 victory against Sassuolo. Only the good home form of The Blues holds them above the line, as Empoli still don’t have a win in an away fixture since the start of the season. The players of Giuseppe Iachini were close to the three points in their away game versus Cagliari on 20 January, but a goal in the extra time by Diego Farias (who is now player of Empoli) broke their ambitions for a victory.
The positive progress since the appointment of Giuseppe Iachini is visible, but earning points against Milan on San Siro will be extremely difficult. Rossoneri are in fantastic form and will be hard to point at a zone that is weak. Empoli won the last match on San Siro, but then the circumstances were different, and the form of Milan was far worse.
Empoli didn’t concede more than two goals in their away fixtures against the leading teams in Serie A only versus Lazio. The Blues had severe problems in defence and will be hard for them to keep a clean sheet. Krzysztof Piątek can’t stop scoring, and since his transfer, he has five goals in six games for Milan. I will back Milan to Win and Over 2.5 Goals, with Milan 3-1 Correct Score.
