Atalanta vs Empoli
Atalanta will host Empoli in Serie A Giornata 32. Atalanta will hunt for victory in order to maintain opportunities for the Champions League. With 52 points currently Atalanta sit in 6th place in Serie A, and are competing to get next season’s Champions League tickets with several other strong teams. Atalanta itself is 3 points away from Milan in 4th place and 2 points from Roma in 5th place. Roma vs Milan themselves have played their Giornata 32 at the end of last week, meaning that if Atalanta wins the game against Empoli then Atalanta will rise to fifth and match Milan’s points. Although Atalanta had a better goal difference than Milan but Atalanta lost in head to head.
Just like Atalanta, Empoli is also in need of a victory in this match. Empoli, which is currently ranked 18th with 28 points, needs additional points so that the chances of getting out of the relegation zone remain. Empoli itself is currently 2 points away from Bologna ranked 17th. On paper, Atalanta clearly has a greater chance than Empoli. Besides being the host factor, in performance, Atalanta’s performance is still better lately. Atalanta are unbeaten in the last 7 games by recording 4 wins and 3 draws. While Empoli, in the same period only won 2 wins and had to suffer 4 losses. Nevertheless, Atalanta must also remain vigilant. Because, in his last 3 defeats Empoli always gave a strong resistance to his opponent. Evidently, they only lost 1 goal difference in the 3 matches. That indicates that Empoli has big ambitions to get out of the red zone.
