Empoli Ascoli betting prediction

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario will be Empoli FC to win the game with some tranquility. Empoli FC must take over the game and have the best goal opportunities, taking advantage of the defensive weaknesses of the visiting team. On the other hand, Ascoli Calcio must adopt a defensive mentality and bet on counterattacks to reach finishing zones and score the winning goal, but without practical effects in the match. Having said that and taking into account these factors, betting in favor of Empoli is a worthwhile option.

The group led by Alessio Dionisi must present themselves in a 4-3-3, privileging the defensive organization and the counterattacks, mainly by the side corridors. The three most advanced players, responsible for attacking the rival defensive structure are Ryder Matos, Andrea La Mantia and Nedim Bajrami. The midfield must be formed by Szymon Zurkowski, Leo Stulac and Nicolas Haas. For this game, the coach of the home team has all the players available.
