Serie A: Empoli - AC Milan

31 Aug 2021
22.12.21 - 20:45 CET

In the 19th round of the Italian top flight, Empoli, currently ninth in the table, will play AC Milan in the third place.

Empoli have a score of three wins and two draws in their last five league games. In their last league game they drew 1-1 away to Spezia, who are currently seventeenth in the table. It should be added that Empoli was clearly the better team in this match. All important statistics were highly in their favour - ball possession 65%, shots total 22:9 and corners 5:3. In the match before, Empoli had sensationally beaten second-placed Napoli 1-0. It was a fairly even match, decided by a lucky goal from Patrick Cutrone. Empoli also beat Juventus 1-0 this season. They are currently on a run of six straight unbeaten games. Empoli will only be missing newly injured midfielder Nicolas Haas for the match.

AC Milan have a score of two wins, one draw and two losses in their last five league games. In their last league game, they fell to second-placed Napoli, losing 0-1 in a tightly contested match. In the match before that, they only drew 1-1 at 14th-placed Udinese. In the first half, they had 71 percent possession of the ball but did not have a single shot on target, while the home team had four shots on target in the first half. Therefore, in the seventeenth minute of the match, AC Milan were also deservedly losing. At least the draw was saved by Ibrahimovic in the second minute of stoppage time. In the last five away league games, AC Milan have defended clean sheet only once. Rafael Leao is having a shaky start to the game. AC Milan will have to do without strikers Pietro Pellegri and Ante Rebić. At the same time, the long-term injured Alessandro Plizzari, Simon Kjaer and Davide Calabria will not play.

Empoli is having a great season so far. They have managed to surprise several Italian big clubs and they will try to do the same in this match. I think AC Milan are a pretty overrated club and will have to rely on Ibrahimovic in attack. But can the 40-year-old legend single-handedly decide the game against a rampant Empoli, who are at full strength except for one midfielder? AC Milan are definitely facing a tougher game than most people think. I'm going to bet on Empoli not losing and I believe they'll take care of another surprise.
