Frosinone vs. Empoli – Preview, Prediction, Team news, Lineups

Frosinone is set to host struggling Empoli in a Serie A showdown on Monday at the Stadio Benito Stirpe. With both teams looking to make their mark in the league, this match promises to be an exciting clash.

Match Preview

In their previous outing, Frosinone made headlines by losing a 3-0 lead in the final 20 minutes, resulting in a dramatic 4-3 defeat against Claudio Ranieri’s Cagliari.

A Matias Soule brace and Marco Brescianini strike seemed to secure a victory for Cagliari, only for Gaetano Oristanio’s 72nd-minute goal to trigger an astonishing comeback.

Despite the disappointment in the last match, Frosinone’s home record is impressive, with three victories and a draw in four home matches, ranking as the seventh-best in Serie A. They are eager to bounce back from last week’s collapse.

Empoli, on the other hand, has been struggling both defensively and offensively.

They have scored the fewest goals in Serie A and have one of the weakest defensive records in the league.

However, they managed to secure two victories this season, both when they found the back of the net.
