Empoli vs Udinese Prediction

Empoli have been rather inconsistent lately with just one win in their last four games. They have won just two of eight home league games all season and will want to change that.

Udinese are winless in their last three games and have won just one of their last 12 league matches. They have drawn seven games, the most in Serie A this campaign. That number could increase to eight when they face Empoli next week.

Prediction: Empoli 1-1 Udinese
