Juventus to secure top four

Juventus to secure top four

Juventus meets with Empoli in a match that looks to help them secure their top four spot in the contest with a win in this game. Juventus is hoping to turn their European heartbreak into a Serie A success by winning this important match. They had their chances on that match for a finals spot in Europa League, but they failed to protect their lead. Empoli on the other hand is looking to build from their strong start this month, trying to earn another win. In fact, they have been impressive since the start of the month, winning against Bologna, and Salernitana. As these two teams are aiming to build a good momentum, expect the two teams to be hungry for wins in this match. Empoli host this match on May 23, 2023, at 2:45 AM (GMT+8).

When it comes to the meeting between these two teams, the visitors dominated their 11 meetings prior to this match. They won 10 meetings, as opposed to the lone win from the visitors. This record is not surprising, considering how far they are from each other in the league table this season. The hosts are sitting at the 14th of the league table with 39 points. As for the visitors, they are at the second of the league table with 69 points. However, although there are only few games remaining for their matches, both teams have yet to secure their spots in the league table.


Serie A: Juventus

Juventus is a team who is likely to secure their spot in the European stage, but their spot in the top four is not yet secured. Although they are at the second spot with 69 points, they do not have a safe lead with the team below them. Fortunately, they are coming into this match with confidence after defeating Cremonese in the league. It was a 2-0 win for Juventus, where it was Nicolas Fagioli, and Gleison Bremer sealed the win for Juventus. They actually had a weak start this season, but fortunately, they turned this misfortunes into fortunes during the second half of the season. It is just unfortunate that they failed to secure a spot in the Europa League finals. This heartbreak gives Juventus the hunger to win in this match for a chance of a European return next season.

Coming into this match, Juventus is facing a long list of absentees, which is the reason why they will need to reshuffle. Juan Cuadrado, and Danilo are both unavailable as they are all facing suspensions. Nicolo Fagioli on the other hand is absent, after fracturing his collarbone. He will then join Leonardo Bonucci, Paul Pogba, and Mattia De Sciglio who are all ruled out the rest of the season already.

Empoli on the other hand continues to fight for their survival, which is likely to happen, considering their place in the league table. They are currently at the 14th of the league table, and are aiming for a mid-table finish this season. They are with 39 points, and are with nine-point lead with the team at the 18th of the league table. Empoli is coming into this game from a 1-1 draw against Sampdoria in the tournament, where it was a goal from Robert Piccoli that helped them escape defeat. Sampdoria have won two of their last five matches in the league. They can gain confidence from the fact that they are now guaranteed for a spot in the Serie A next season.

Empoli will be without Koni De Winter because of an injury, while Tommaso Baldanzi has been called for the U20 World Cup. Despite their absence, Empoli can still rely with Tyrone Ebuehi, who assisted Empoli’s last three goals.
