National cups are something special for many teams and supporters. Today's match will decide whether it's Napoli or Empoli that keep their silverware dream alive.

These are busy days for the home team, as they were in action only three days ago in the Serie A. At least it's nice to return home after that away game at Udinese.

Napoli form and stats

Overall Serie A stats at home this season for Napoli are 4-1-3 (wins-draw-losses).

Alex Meret loved the game against Udinese. With a stunning seven saves the goalkeeper played a huge part in the 2-1 victory.

Empoli form and stats

Last season their Coppa Italia adventure ended in the 4th round.

The away team have been very comfortable on their travels so far, racking up 5 wins, 3 draws and only 1 loss in the Serie B. When we have look at the Coppa Italia statistics, we find 3W-0D-0L. This is both home and away. In general it has been a productive period now for Empoli as they haven't lost any of their last eleven games. It could be a hat trick of victories away for Empoli, as they have won on their previous two travels.

Empoli play their second away game in a row, but can be confident going into this one after the 2-0 victory visiting Cosenza. A 1-1 draw was the result before that, hosting Ascoli in the Serie B.

The home team is given a winning chance of about 80 percent by the betting public. This does not leave much hope for the visitors, but some teams enjoy the outsider role and perform well in it. Looking at similar away games for Empoli we find one game. Results are zero Empoli wins, zero draws and one defeat.

A new game in only four days for Empoli, the Serie B home match versus Salernitana. Busy days.

The travelling fans enjoy Empoli's attacking play in away games, having scored 17 goals in 9 league matches away. As opposed to that, Empoli have seen the ball go into their own net 9 times on the road. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only -1 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.
