Bologna - Empoli betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 14:00 on 17/09/2022 played @ Stadio Renato Dall'Ara refereed by Manuel Volpi

Betting odds can be illusive at times and Empoli are more than capable of pulling an upset. However, Bologna should have a clear path to victory if they stick to the plan.

The visitors are well-aware of the task ahead. Beating Bologna is difficult under any circumstances and doing it on their own turf would be an even bigger achievement for Empoli.

Bologna must be feeling confident after the performance they gave the fans at Stadio Renato Dall'Ara during the second half of the last round’s match. Despite the very difficult matchup against Fiorentina and mediocre first half, they nabbed a narrow 2:1 home win in the end.

Empoli’s 1:2 loss in their previous home game against Roma was not surprising – top online bookmakers gave them 5.25 odds to win. The match remained a stalemate in the first half, but it was only a matter of time.

The hosts will hopefully perform better than what we’ve seen from their away games. The 5 concessions they recorded over the past 3 away games has some fans reeling.

It seems Bologna didn’t start the season off on the right foot, but there’s still time to change that. The first thing they’ll want to do is wrestle 3 points away this Saturday, though it won’t be easy.

The form we saw from Empoli over the past 7 matches can’t be good for their supporters’ confidence. They’re just 2 points above the relegation zone and are heading into this game as clear underdogs. On the bright side, we’re only at round 7 of the competition.

The betting odds are clearly in the hosts’ favour, but one head-to-head records tell a slightly different story. They suffered a harsh defeat by Empoli in the previous season, so their position as favourites is not as sound as it might seem.

Fortunately, both teams will be able to give their all this Saturday. Neither squad has been affected by injuries or suspensions, allowing the coaches to work with all the tools at their disposal.

A Both Teams to Score bet is a very easy choice to make. A quick look at the two teams’ histories and statistics reveals that this match a very strong candidate to confirm the BTTS market.
