The NAP vs EMP match preview –
Third-placed team in the Serie A will be playing their 11th game in the season as they take on Empoli FC on Friday.
Napoli are undefeated in their last five games since suffering defeat to league leaders in Juventus. They are a team who love to attack and their coach in Carlo Ancelotti is known to be a master tactician. With the likes of Lorenzo Insigne, Dries Mertens and Allan he has a star-studded lineup of players. It will be a while till he gets his philosophy instilled in the team and this might be the year where he tries new things to get a better gauge of the players.
On the other hand, Empoli FC are a team who have recently been promoted from Serie B. They are currently in the 18th in the table but it will take them a lot of time for them to do something significant. Manager Aurelio Andreazzoli has his job on the line as if the performances don’t pick up he might be shown the door before the end of the season.
