The final matchday in 2012 in Italy is here and the earliest game of the day is in the second divisions with Empoli traveling to Calabria to face Reggina with a 6:30 EST kickoff.Both clubs are fighting to claw their way back to Serie A but so far only Empoli look to have a realistic shot at making it back to the top flight as they currently sit in seventh spot in the table. A win on Sunday would launch them into fourth position but still a considerable distance from the automatic top two promotion spots.
They barely avoided relegation down to Serie C last year by three points but have turned things around by producing a respectable record of 8-6-7 (W-L-T) overall while also doing well on the road with a mark of 4-3-3.
They are also unbeaten in their last seven matches which includes their last three away games so take a look at Empoli to continue their winning ways with a payout of 2.66 over at Uwin.com.
The same firm also has the draw listed at 2.94 and given how both Empoli and Reggina have each drawn a third of their matches it is not too bad of a hedge bet at 2.94. It's not very often you see draws under 3.00 but Serie B is known for producing a lot of them.
The hosts are being listed currently at 2.60. They have won two in a row, including a 1-0 home win against Vicenza on Boxing Day but the Empoli outright win or draw is a more likely scenario.
Also have a serious look at the over/under where the over 2.5 is sitting just under evens at 1.99. Though Reggina have a tendency to have low scoring matches - 1.91 total goals in 11 home games - they have had high scoring affairs with more offensive minded teams and Empoli is the third highest scoring team in Serie B as well as being second highest in goals allowed for an average of 3.33 goals per match in total goals.
