Empoli vs Napoli Kick Off Time
NAME: Empoli – Napoli
DATE: 25 Feb 2023
TIME: 17:00 UTC
VENUE: Carlo Castellani, Empoli, Italy
It is expected to be an uphill struggle for Empoli when they play host to Serie A favourites Napoli at Stadio Carlo Castellani in round 24’s meeting on Saturday.
The Tuscany outfit’s 1-1 draw with Fiorentina last weekend extended their month-long winless run, while Napoli secured a seventh straight league victory at Sassuolo last Friday before following that up with a 2-0 triumph in the Champions League at Eintracht Frankfurt in midweek
The Azzurri have not won a game in Serie A since defeating the Nerazzurri last month, although they have fallen to just one loss in that time, with Jose Mourinho’s Roma claiming a 2-0 triumph at the start of February.
Draws are the norm for the side from Florence, with no other top-flight team accruing more than Empoli’s 10 in 2022-23.
The league’s 12th-placed team may not let in a bucketload of goals — 29 goals conceded in Serie A is the second-meanest in the league’s bottom half — but they have not scored near enough at the other end, finding the back of the net 22 times.
Only the league’s bottom four have netted fewer than Zanetti’s men, who would lean on their hard-to-breakdown rearguard and form at the Castellani against Luciano Spalletti’s irrepressible outfit.
Unbeaten in five on their turf, picking up three wins in the ongoing sequence, the three clean sheets in their commendable run could make Napoli nervous.
Adding to the Partenopei’s anxiety will be a recollection of events in the corresponding fixture last season, when Empoli roared back from two goals down with 10 minutes remaining to win 3-2. That said, a lot has changed since April 2022.
Empoli possible starting lineup:
Vicario; Ebuehi, Ismajli, Luperto, Parisi; Henderson, Marin, Grassi; Baldanzi; Cambiaghi, Caputo
