Empoli and Cagliari’s last meeting was more than six years ago, a battle that turned out well for the latter but frustrating for the former. In the current season, however, Empoli seem to be having a better stint in Serie A than Cagliari. The squad are four spots above their rivals with a two-goal advantage. Both sides, nonetheless, are ranked within the bottom half. Victories have been elusive on the teams, with only one positive result they (each) obtained from their last five matches. Empoli decorated their form mostly with draws, Cagliari peppered theirs with several defeats.

Empoli duel best in the air, with solid displays they are able to carry out in this particular discipline. However, they need further push in their defenses against long shots and through ball attacks. Cagliari, meanwhile, perform well at creating scoring chances in numerous situations. However, conversion is their strongest problem, not to mention that they also frequently commit errors in the offside.

 

Football betting tip: Empoli will narrowly win against Cagliari.

Parma vs. Sassuolo

Match Date: 26 October 2014 (local)

Match Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini

 

Both marooned in the relegation zone, Parma and Sassuolo are in dire need of a victory. Parma ranks at the rock bottom with a record of one win, zero draws, and six losses. Sassuolo are just a spot away with zero wins, four draws, and three defeats.

Resilience is the dominant force that pushes Parma to keep going, even if they suffer badly in aerial duels, in the defense, and in counter-attacking. Sassuolo share the same dilemma, although their defense is a lot worse and their ability to finish scoring chances is almost non-existent.

 

Sports betting tip: None of the sides, Parma and Sassuolo, will earn three points. This battle will produce a goalless draw.
