Lazio will welcome Empoli to Stadio Olimpico for a matchday 20 fixture in Italy Serie A. The last meeting on 21st August 2021 ended in a Lazio 3-1 win. Both sides have met nine times in the most recent seasons. Lazio has won 7 matches, and Empoli triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 2.33 goals, while both teams score 33% of the time.

Lazio's latest fixture against Venezia ended in an away 3-1 win. Biancazzurri was very dangerous in attack, having attempted five shots on target. Lazio scored in both halves in the 3rd, 48th and 90+5 minute.

Empoli's recent game against AC Milan ended in a home 2-4 loss. Azzurri had plenty of possession, but not so much in the final third of the pitch. Empoli had good chances in both halves and scored in the 18th and 84th minute.

Since the start of the season, Aquile is more dominant at home. They have six wins out of 11 games on home soil. Although Lazio is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 27% home clean sheets.

Empoli has picked up 3 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Empoli has collected 1.73 points on average per away game, compared to 0.83 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Empoli kept a clean sheet in just 27% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Biancazzurri is currently unbeaten at home in four games. Since the start of the season, they have lost at home on just one occasion.

Azzurri failed to win in three consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Thursday and win against Biancazzurri.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Lazio wins on average 2.00 points per home game, compared to 1.73 points per away game for Empoli. My prediction is Lazio to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.45 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 61% of Lazio's home and Empoli's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Both sides are dangerous going forward. Lazio has scored in 82% of home games. Empoli is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
