Empoli to stop consecutive defeats

Empoli and US Lecce is looking to put a stop with their four-game losing streak in the league, as they both aim for a better place in the league table. Empoli is coming from a 2-1 loss against Atalanta BC before their international break. Lecce on the other hand is from a 1-0 loss against Fiorentina. In the league table, there is only two places that separates these two teams, but Lecce is in a more dangerous spot. Empoli is at the 14th, while Lecce is at the 16th, with only a point separating them. This meeting will be on April 3, 2023, at 12:30 AM (GMT+8), with Empoli playing as hosts.

From their last 11 meetings, it was the hosts who is holding a better record. They won four of those last 11 meetings, while the visitors only recorded two victories, while five matches ended in draw. Since a loss way back in October 2019, the hosts is in a four-game unbeaten streak against the visitors. However, in those last four matches, the hosts only won once. The visitors on the other hand are not doing well on the road, losing to four and winning to two of their last six away matches. Nonetheless, these two teams are coming into this match looking to have a boost in their records.


Serie A: Empoli

Empoli were once again suffered a disappointing loss when they had a 2-1 loss against Atalanta before their international break. This loss puts them at the 14th of the league table with just 28 points. Moreover, even if they win in this match, they could only retain their spot as they are still six points away from the 13th spot. However, they are in-need of win to widen their gap to the team at the 17th. Their current record is that they are winless in their last eight games, losing in five, including their last four. They can no longer afford to continue this record, so they really need to go back to winning ways if they want to improve their record.

Nicolo Cambiaghi, who have not played since February 19, is still unavailable for Empoli in this match. Mattia Destro on the other hand is expected to return in this match, after being named as substitutes for this match.

Lecce on the other hand is no better than their opponent, as they are also in a losing run coming into this match. They currently sit at the 16th of the league table and are desperate for wins to avoid falling in the drop zone. Fortunately, the team in the 18th of the league table is with 19 points, so they have an eight point lead. They need to work harder in their attacks, as it is where they have a clear struggle. Just like Empoli, they suffered a 1-0 loss against Fiorentina, and are looking to bounce back in this match. They last experienced a win in February, a 2-1 victory against Atalanta.

Kastriot Dermaku remains to be out for Lecce, as he is yet to recover from pubalgia. Samuel Umtiti and Youssef Maleh on the other hand are both suspended after picking up yellow cards on their loss against Fiorentina.
