Preview. Juventus vs Empoli, 02.04.2016
The Old Lady is hosting Empoli in Torino on April 2, 2016. Juventus continues their confident run for the 5th Champion title in a row. The match against Bayern Munich and disqualification from the round-of-8 of Champions League were quite insultiving for the Allegri’s side, but now they can mainly focus on their national tournament. The Old Lady has only 3 points gap between Napoli with 8 rounds ahead before the end of the season. So it is quite early to make any conclusion about the top spot. “Bianconeri” played hard and confident and their undefeated seria reached 20 games in Seria A. Juventus won 11 home matches in a row, taking into account Jan Luigi Buffon’s impressive result – no missed goals within 579 consequtive minutes of playing time.
Empoli leave contradictory impressions upon their current results
On one hand, we can praise them for some good results. Upon the retirement of the main coach Mauricio Sarri and heading over to Napoli, the Tuscanies were expected to fail the whole tournament and be relegated to Seria B. Although, the Swiss coach Marco Giampaolo turned out a great training specialist and wasn’t worse than his previous counterpart at all. Azzuri demonstrated great results at the beginning of the season holding one of the top spots. On the other hand, the team has turned into absolutely opposite one, they can’t win already in 11 consecutive matches. We can hardly imagine the Tuscanies will manage to compete somehow with the current leaders of Seria A.
