Perugia Preview – Can Perugia avoid third defeat on trot?

Perugia will be looking to avoid a third defeat on the trot in Serie B when they entertain Empoli on Monday night following recent back-to-back defeats to Spezia 3-0 at home and a 1-0 loss away from home at Frosinone last time out in the Italian second tier.

Indeed, Perugia have managed to pick up just 2 wins out of their last 7 matches overall in Serie B which were gained in a 1-0 win against Livorno and a 2-1 win away at Juve Stabia, but 4 defeats within this recent 7-match period has prevented Perugia from breaking into the top eight to date.

Nevertheless, Perugia possess a reasonable looking home record that stands at 6-3-3 15/12 and includes just 2 defeats out of their last 6 matches on home turf at their Stadio Renato Curi, but goals have been a little short in supply during this campaign.

7 of Perugia’s 12 home matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals and this could be another low-scoring encounter against Empoli on Monday night.

Empoli Preview – Can Empoli win four on trot?

10th placed Empoli are level on points with their Monday night’s hosts, Perugia, but are one league position above them due to a slightly better goal difference, and the visitors will be in confident mood ahead of this encounter, having collected three wins on the trot prior to tonight’s clash.

Victories over Crotone, Cittadella and Pisa respectively have helped lift Empoli to within just 3 points of 8th placed Pordenone, and a fourth win on the trot in Serie B could see the visitors break into the play-off pack.

However, it should be noted that the majority of Empoli’s success so far in this season’s Serie B campaign has been achieved on home turf at their Stadio Carlo Castellani where they’ve lost just once so far this term, but their results away from home tell a very different story.

An away record of 2-3-6 8/18 includes winning just 1 of their last 8 matches on their travels which also includes 6 defeats within this poor period of results, so backing them for a win here would seem highly risky, but 7 of Empoli’s 11 away matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals.
