Chievo vs Empoli Prediction & Betting tips
In the second Italian league, a total of six teams can still hope for promotion to Serie A. The playoffs will start next Tuesday, in which another club will be determined, which Benevento and Crotone can follow to the upper house.
In round one there is a game between Chievo Verona and Empoli. According to the odds of the best bookmakers, the home side is favored for a move to the semi-finals, where the third-placed Spezia Calcio would then meet the sixth or seventh of the regular season. It is also a fact that the decision will be made on Tuesday, if necessary after extra time or even on penalties
The Mussi Volanti from Verona have moved up to position six thanks to the maximum yield of nine points on the last three matchdays, thereby gaining the home advantage for the quarter-finals. If the long-standing first division club ties in with the last shown performances, the probability is very high that a prediction on the host pays off between Chievo Verona and Empoli.
Compared to the upcoming opponent, the guests from Tuscany lost three of their latest five Serie B matches and thus lost a better starting position. The home advantage and the momentum are therefore indications that speak before the duel Chievo Verona against Empoli for a tip on the yellow-blue.
After 35 of 38 match days, there was still much to suggest that Chievo Verona will miss the top eight and the associated playoff participation. The flying donkeys only ranked tenth in the Serie B classification and were three points behind the targeted table region.
It was only thanks to three victories on the last three match days, including a surprising victory for the leaders Benevento, that coach Alfredo Aglietti’s team, who took the reins in Veneto at the beginning of March, improved to sixth place in the quarter-finals of the playoffs Brings home advantage.
In their own stadium, the yellow-blue presented themselves in good shape throughout the season. Ten wins in 19 games (four draws, five bankruptcies) correspond to a solid value. Above all defensively, the Musso Volanti was able to set standards with just 18 goals conceded. Only three clubs received fewer hits than the yellow-blue ones, who would have no objection to an immediate return to the top floor just a year after relegation from Serie A.
The bottom line is that we can well imagine that the home side with the self-confidence they have gained from the recent three successes have a good chance of asserting themselves after regular time. If the yellow-blue can confirm the good defensive condition, a single hit would be enough to advance. Interesting in this respect is the fact that the Northern Italians have never conceded a goal in seven of their last eight wins. Coach Aglietti can also draw on personnel from the full.
Similar to Chievo Verona, Empoli FC had to fear for the playoffs until the end. The Azure, who were also well represented in the past season and are now aiming for a direct return, were even in tenth place before the last matchday before they benefited from being able to compete in the bottom position in Livorno. There Empoli won 2-0 and climbed to seventh place.
Coach Pasquale Marino’s charges have carelessly threw a better starting position for the playoffs in recent weeks. Because the men from Tuscany only got six points from the past five Serie B games, they will now have to go all the way to a potential playoff final.
While the Gli Azzurri only suffered four defeats this season in their own stadium, there were already eight abroad. This contrasts with seven successes and four points. The goal difference is also negative with 21 goals scored and 25 goals away. Nevertheless, three of the youngest four appearances were victorious, although the opposition was relatively easy.
Before the game Chievo Verona against Empoli, it should be taken into account for the forecast that the guests have a high quality squad. According to transfermarkt.de, the blue team is worth more than twice as much as that of the home team. The trend-setting question is whether we choose the individual class of the Marino team or trust the momentum or the latest form? The coach did not have to complain of any notable losses on Tuesday.
