NAP vs EMP Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The three points will be the only satisfactory result for Carlo Ancelotti when his Napoli take on Empoli at Stadio San Paolo, in the Serie A, on Friday night.
With only a quarter of the season gone, Napoli find themselves already six points behind the leaders Juventus. Last week’s 1-1 draw at home against AS Roma did help little in bridging the gap, and now Naples have little or no room for error considering the Old Lady don’t look like dropping points in the league.
A revival is needed for Carlo Ancelotti and his team when they welcome Empoli to Stadio San Paolo. And it’s a great opportunity for the Serie A hopefuls to bag all three points against the visitors who have won just once in the first nine games.
Though Empoli lack the aura of other big Serie A clubs. This fixture, however, has produced some remarkable moments in the past, and nothing can surpass the stellar performance of Empoli on 30th April 2015 when they beat Napoli 4-2 at the Stadio Carlo Castellani. Can the lightning strike twice?
Empoli were promoted to Serie A only this season after winning the Serie B back in May, ahead of Parma by a massive 13 points. However, the top flight is a completely different tournament with teams having big budgets and almost all the teams are well-stocked with more talented players. That’s the reality which bit Empoli hard and they are indeed struggling for their survivals in Serie A.
The season, however, got off to a dreamy start as the Blues won 2-0 against Cagliari in their first top-flight game. And that’s that, the only shining light with the victory eluding both Stadio Carlo Castellani and Empoli since the opening day.
This is really an important match for Aurelio Andreazzoli and his team as a defeat could leave them six points adrift of the safety by the end of the round 10 fixtures.
