Lazio – Empoli, Serie A Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR LAZIO - EMPOLI
Lazio got a remarkable victory against Frosinone on Monday after a 1-0 victory over the Eagles. This puts Lazio in 7th position just 1 point from the top 4, where Milan is located. It is extremely important for Lazio to take a psychological advantage over other competitors, and matches like the one with Empoli should not make it difficult, especially at home.
Empoli are in a very weak form and again did not win, this time vs the last Chievo in the last round as the match ended 2-2. Before that, Empoli lost another key match against Genoa, which indicates that the team definitely lacks mood. For Empoli every match is key, as they are only 1 point ahead of the 18th Bologna and are very seriously involved in the battle for survival and their shape is not improving.
Lazio handles brilliantly against the lower half of the table and overall the eagles have lost only 4 points against them and not 1 at home, which speaks eloquently. The guests have no win in a visit this season, and their only winning points are against teams from their level. Besides, their defense is very weak, while for Lazio returns Milinkovic-Savic. We can not expect anything different, but Lazio to start with the goals in the first part, so prediction – Lazio to score first half at 1.47
- Empoli has conceded a goal in first half in nine of the last 10 league visits
- Lazio led at half time in 7 of the last 8 home games against Empoli
