Team Analysis
In recent times, Empoli seems to have had the upper hand in their matchups. They were the victors in three games and ended in stalemate in two out of the last five face-offs with Salernitana. However, Salernitana's recent performance has been less stellar, with five defeats and a draw in their latest six encounters across various tournaments.

Empoli's defense has stepped up in previous league affairs, managing to concede just one goal, an aspect that is making them noteworthy contenders in the upcoming game. Speaking of Friday’s confrontation, Salernitana is in dire need of a result, lagging behind Empoli by five points and sitting uncomfortably in a worse position on the table.

Empoli, on the other hand, approaches this game having not lost a match in three consecutive league games, which gives them a psychological edge. Their formidable defensive line has continued to shine, as evidenced in their goalless draw against Genoa a week ago.

Salernitana has also shown defensive prowess in their latest game, ending a five-match loss run by drawing against Torino and limiting them to just a single shot on target. Filippo Inzaghi, the head coach, must be pleased with his team's defensive display in that game.

Tracing back the history of meetings between these two teams, Empoli appears dominant with three victories and two draws in the last five encounters. This run includes their 1-0 triumph in September of the previous year at Stadio Carlo Castellani. Furthermore, both squads managed to find the back of the net in four out of the five previous head-to-head games.

Odds Analysis
Given the significance of Friday's matchup for both teams, one can expect a heated and tense game on the field. Recent performances suggest a strong emphasis on defense by both sides. Empoli's defense, in particular, is of note, having only conceded a single goal in the last three league matches. Considering these factors, a low-scoring game with few clear chances is not unlikely, and under 2.5 goals present a potential outcome.

Empoli's recent record of remaining unbeaten in three subsequent league games and their favorable encounters with Salernitana put them in a favorable position. Combining this with Salernitana's disappointing performance since the beginning of the season, with just two wins in 23 matches, one could conclude that Empoli possesses a higher probability to emerge victorious or at the least secure a draw.

Taking all these into account, all eyes will be on the field this Friday, Feb 9, 2024, as Salernitana and Empoli battle it out in a match of significance for both teams in the Italian Serie A.

Pick: Under 2.5 goals
