A nine-game winless run, which consists of four wins, has seen Empoli slip down the Serie A table. They are currently 13th on 31 points after 26 matches played. However, with 12 matches remaining this season, The Blues sit only nine points above the relegation places. Last time out Aurelio Andreazzoli’s side fell to a 2-0 defeat at Sampdoria which turned out to be the second time in three matches Empoli failed to net. At home Empoli have failed to win any of their previous four games which included suffering three defeats on the bounce, during this aforementioned four-match winless streak they’ve scored six goals while conceding 14 times.

Though unbeaten in 12 league games coming into this latest round of Serie A fixtures, Juventus are on a two-game winless run having drawn each of their previous two games 1-1. The first at Atalanta saw Juve snatch a point from the jaws of defeat through a 90 minute Danilo equaliser. Next time out Max Allegri’s men threw away two points after going ahead against city rivals Torino. The Old Lady, who are fourth on 47 points, have won just one of their last three league fixtures. Since a 2-1 loss to Verona in October 2021 they’ve played seven matches on the road subsequently returning home with four wins.

Empoli vs Juventus: Match Stats

After winning the reverse fixture Empoli could remain unbeaten in two consecutive Serie A matches against Juventus for the second time, the first time being during the 1998/99 season (0-0 and 1-0). Juventus last suffered a double against a promoted side in 2012/13 (v Sampdoria). On top of that, Empoli have scored only four goals in their last 13 Serie A games against Juve, never scoring more than once in a game – they last netted at least two goals in a single match in January 2004 (3-3).

Juventus are unbeaten in their last 12 Serie A matches which equals their longest run under previous coach Andrea Pirlo – in fact, they are only two games away from equalling the longest run under Maurizio Sarri in 2019/20 (14). Bianconeri marksman Dusan Vlahovic at the Castellani against Empoli earlier this season for Fiorentina, only Krzysztof Piatek in 2018/19 (Genoa and Milan) has scored for two different sides against Empoli in a single Serie A campaign, albeit it hasn’t previously been done in two away games.
