Lazio vs Empoli Preview

Lazio vs Empoli

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio Olimpico

Date: 7th February 2019

Kick-off time – 19:30 GMT

Lazio host struggling Empoli in this game as they look to recover from a recent run of tough fixtures.

Lazio beat Frosinone on Monday, however, prior to that game they had to play Napoli, Juventus and Inter Milan consecutively.

They fought well but lost narrowly to Napoli and Juventus before beating Inter Milan 3-4 on penalties.

They now turn their attention towards qualifying for the Champions League next season with a top four finish.

Empoli are currently just above the relegation zone and their fans know that they need to start getting results from these games if they want to survive.

They haven’t won any of their last three matches, picking up two draws and a defeat in this process.

The fact that they have scored 5 goals in those three games is a good thing, however, they have also conceded 7 goals in that period of time and that is worrying.

Lazio have won all 4 of the last 4 games between these teams.

Bookmakers have priced Lazio up as extremely strong favourites to come out on top in this game.

Goal markets suggest a high-scoring game as over 2.5 goals is trading odds-on while Ciro Immobile is clear favourite with bookies to open the scoring.
