From their last four away matches, they failed to score in three of those.


Serie A: Empoli

This team is unbeaten from their three league games, including a 2-2 draw against Lazio on their last fixture. Empoli’s two goals in that game was scored during the last 13 minutes of that match. It was Francesco Caputo, and Razvan Marin who scored the two goals for Empoli. With that, they are wnow with 19 points, placing them at the 14th of the league table. However, when going against their opponent, they are currently struggling in their recent meetings. In fact, from their last 12 games, this squad just won once. From their recent meetings, they are doing well recently, so they might turn the tables around in this match.

Mattia Destro remains to be out for Empoli, when it comes to attacking, but when they signed Caputo, he helped voiding the absence of Destro. Lorenzo Tonelli will also not be available for Empoli, as he is still nursing his knee injury. Luckily, Jean-Daniela Akpa Akpro will be available in this match, after serving his suspension.

Sampdoria’s recent campaign in the tournament is nothing but disappointment. On their last meeting, they fell short against Napoli, in a 2-0 loss. This is after winning their win against Sassuolo in a 2-1 win. Since they lost their previous match, they were dropped to the 19th place in the league table, garnering just nine points from their 17 games. This squad failed to score in five of their last six league games. They are lucky though that they are playing well on the road against Empoli, as they won their last three road games against their opponent. During their last meeting against their opponent, they are lucky to have a decent record against Empoli. They will rely on this to seek for their chance in this match.

Tomas Rincon will not participate in this game, following the suspension he needs to serve after receiving a red card. Abdelhamid Sabiri and Omar Colley on the other hand could return in this match.
