Juventus welcome Empoli to the Allianz Stadium looking to stretch their home winning run against the struggling visitors to eight games.
The undisputed Serie A leaders enter this round following an unexpectable 2-0 road loss to Genoa on the eve of the international break, which was their first league defeat this campaign. Nonetheless, the reigning holders boast an almost perfect home record (W12, D2), with only Napoli (33) scoring more goals at home than Juventus (32) so far. Interestingly, the Bianconeri have bagged 3+ match goals in all four of their previous SA home outings, while keeping a clean sheet twice in the process. Only Inter Milan (6) have shipped fewer goals at home than the Old Lady (9) this campaign, with Massimiliano Allegri’s men preventing their rivals from scoring in seven of 14 SA home clashes.
Meanwhile, although the visitors come into this meeting off the back of a 2-1 home win over Frosinone, they desperately need something here as they sit just one point clear of the relegation territory. However, Gli Azzurri are one of two teams along with Chievo Verona that are yet to secure all three points away from home in the league (W0, D4, L9) this term and have lost all three of their last SA road trips. No team has shipped more goals on the road than Empoli (30) so far, with Aurelio Andreazzoli’s men keeping barely one clean sheet on 13 SA road trips. Additionally, Empoli’s tally of 12 goals scored away from home is the league’s joint fourth-worst, with Andreazzoli’s players struggling to find the net in three of their last five SA road matches.
