Lazio v Empoli Match preview
Maurizio Sarri’s men are in eighth place in the league standings and trail bitter rivals AS Roma by one point. The Biancocelesti have been a little inconsistent this season otherwise they would already be occupying a European football spot.
However, both Ciro Immobile and Pedro have been in fine form this season which give them hope of a better second half of the campaign.
Empoli are in ninth place in the league standings and have lost just once in seven games in all competitions. They have also managed to score 15 goals during this period which means that attack isn’t an issue. However, defense has been a problem. Nonetheless, Aurelio Andreazzoli’s men are enjoying a successful campaign and an unlikely push for European football could be on the cards.
