After a disastrous start to the season in which it took just two points from its first four Serie A matches, Juventus has slowly crept up the Italian Serie A table over the last five months and now sits fourth. On Saturday, the side will visit 13th-place Empoli, which hasn’t won a league match since December but is still sitting nine points above the relegation zone. Juventus has drawn its last three matches, while Empoli has drawn two of its last three. You can see what happens next when you stream the match live on Paramount+.

Italian Serie A picks for Empoli vs. Juventus
Before tuning into Saturday’s match, you need to see the Juventus vs. Empoli picks from European soccer insider Jon Eimer. Eimer is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining SportsLine, Eimer has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. The Indiana-based handicapper compiled a winning record of 260-133-1 with over 90 units of profit for his community on various platforms over a recent two-month stretch.
For Empoli vs. Juventus, Eimer is taking Juventus to win on the 90-minute money line for a -155 payout. Juventus has more motivation in this match, as its currently fourth in the Italian Serie A standings with the top four teams getting into the UEFA Champions League next season. With Atalanta, Lazio, Fiorentina and Roma all within six points, Il Biaconeri know that every point could be critical down the stretch.
Meanwhile, Empoli hasn’t won a match in the league since Dec. 12 against Napoli, but is still comfortably above the relegation zone. Empoli has a nine-point cushion and has seemed content to play for draws, with five of its last nine matches ending in a tie. However, if Empoli sits back against one of the most esteemed clubs in Europe, they could have new superstar Dusan Vlahovic to deal with.
“One of the top scorers in all of Serie A, Dusan Vlahovic was transferred away from Fiorentina during the January transfer window in the third-most-expensive deal in January transfer window history. So far, he has not disappointed in the slightest,” Eimer told SportsLine. “It took Vlahovic a couple weeks to adjust but after grabbing his first goal against Villareal earlier this week, it looks like he’s settled in and ready to make a name for himself with Juventus.”
