Lazio and Empoli are playing against each other in a postponed match of round 23 in Serie A. Simone Inzaghi’s players for sure now think about the away game versus Sevilla in Europa League, but first have to win important three points against Empoli. After the losses against Napoli and Juventus in January, Lazio won versus Frosinone with 1-0 over the weekend. The Eagles are two points away from the fourth team in the standings – Milan and are in the fight for participation in the Champions League next season.
Empoli ended their game against Chievo as a 2-2 draw and kept the lead from one point ahead of the 18th in the standings – Bologna. A big reason why The Blues are not in the relegation zone yet is that of their strong performance at home. As guests Empoli still don’t have a win, while took points only in their fixtures against teams from the lower half of the table – S.P.A.L., Cagliari, Chievo and Frosinone.
Given the form of Empoli as a guest, it will be a miracle if Lazio don’t take the three points. The list of injured players in the squad of Simone Inzaghi is almost minimal, which will undoubtedly affect The Eagles positively. We expect a win for the home team, but not without a goal from Empoli. The Blues are playing attractively in attack and scored in almost all away games of the team since the start of the season, while Lazio don’t have a clean sheet on Stadio Olimpico since 7 October.
