2014-2015 Serie A Predictions: Week 19 (Part 1)

Roma - Week 19

Empoli vs. Inter

 

Match Date: 17 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Carlo Castellani

The story so far

Empoli is on the verge of hitting the relegation zone after suffering a narrow defeat to the online bettingfavorite, Sampdoria. This also ended the squad’s undefeated run during their last 8 matches. However, its head honcho, Maurizio Sarri remained positive about the matter. He praised the team’s efforts in going against a strong team. But at the same time, acknowledged the club’s failure to capitalize on their scoring chances. So far, the only thing that keeps Empoli alive is the stalemates that it has incurred in its previous matches.

 

Capitalizing on draws may not be Empoli’s best strategy as its upcoming opponent, Inter, is less likely to wave the white flag. This is most especially true nowadays since the club has completed its 4-match winning streak.

 

Aside from keeping the momentum, Empoli should be also wary of Xheridan Shaqiri. The Swiss international has just completed his loan in the Italian outfit and might be included in Roberto Mancini’s starting XI.

 

 

Prediction

Empoli 1-2 Inter

Roma - Week 19

 

 

Palermo vs. AS Roma

 

Match Date: 17 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Renzo Barbera

 

The story so far

There is a strong possibility for Palermo to exploit their home court advantage against the strong Roma. The club (Palermo) was successful in its last 5 home matches, but experienced a frustrating defeat to Fiorentina.

 

Giuseppe Iachini stressed that the said loss could have been prevented if the team defended well. And surely, they will be needing a solid defence strategy since the capital club is keen on keeping the pressure against Juventus,

 

Roma currently sports a 6-match unbeaten run. Their resilience enabled them to keep Juve’s lead to 3, which, eventually, makes them a strong title contender and a definite sports bettingfavorite.

 

 

 

Prediction

Palermo 0-3 AS Roma
