Lazio vs Empoli (By: Sangosam)

23rd round of Serie A is starting very early in the week in a game between Lazio and Empoli.

Saturday afternoon Lazio's field will be welcoming a six nations game and Lazio can't play on monday as they have an Uefa game to play next thursday. So the only "normal" day left was today.

In case of victory Lazio will be 4th before that Milan, Roma or Atalanta will play this weekend.

Main goal of Inzaghi's team this year was a Champions League spot for next year.

A spot that they lost on the last season's last game.

Lazio's level this year was kind of stable in the sense that they always had a lot of troubles against "big teams" and won almost all their games against smaller teeams.

After winning against a team fighting relegation on monday (Frosinone) , now they are playing Empoli, another team in the same situation.

Without a single win in the last 7 league games, Empoli's main problem is the defense.

Change of coach didn't change anything as they have now the worst defense in the league with 44 goals conceded!

[In away games, they conceded at least 2 goals in the last 6 games with a medium of 3 goals conceded.In 5 of those 6 games, Empoli scored as well.]

Lazio will be missing for this game their striker Immobile and should be replaced by Caicedo who was the only to score in Lazio's last game.

Empoli will be playing with the exact same starting 11 as against Chievo.

[By the way Lazio always scored and conceded in their last 9 home games.]

Add to this Empoli's goal record in their away games and an over 2.5 game here is a must.

Lazio will go for the 3 points here in my opinion so I'm combining both.

$$ For the "hungry ones", a very nice odd to try also is Lazio win + BTTS with a 2.95 odd. $$

Lazio has only scored 1 goal since 20th of January and I doubt that they will score 3 goals even against Empoli without immobile

Senpai where did you find this stat? Since 20th of January Lazio scored 4 goals.
And I never said they will score 3. If you read my review you will see that I said Empoli will very probably score, so if Lazio scores 2 goal that's also enough.
Good luck anyway.

Both teams missed tones of chances, at least 3 extra goals should have been scored!
