Match prediction and betting tips for Lazio vs Empoli Serie A 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Stadio Olimpico, Rome, on the 6th of January 2022.
Lazio would like to build upon its from prior to the break. The team beat Genoa and Venezia with a score of 3-1 for both games. However, the one weakness that has been quite evident for the team is its defense. Lazio has failed to stop its opponents from scoring in the last 7 games and conceded 15 goals in the process.
Similarly, Empoli has proved to be quite weak when it comes to defending its goalpost this season and has managed to keep just 3 clean sheets in 19 games played so far. The Azzurri come into this contest having lost its previous game against AC Milan. However, to its credit, the team has not lost its last 3 away games.
Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri will most likely have to give a miss to Francesco Acerbi, who is suffering from a hamstring injury, and Mattia Zacagni, who is down with COVID. Other than them, pretty much the whole squad will be available for selection.
Aurelio Andreazzoli on the other hand has many names missing from the available list of players. This includes Nicolas Hass, Emmanuel Ekong, and Ardian Ismalji, all of whom are suffering from various niggles.
The game promises to be a close encounter, and we expect both teams to score in the game. However, Lazio may prove to be a difficult opponent to beat for Empoli.
Bet on a Lazio win.
Keeping a clean sheet has been a problem for both teams playing this match and this is why we expect this match to be an exciting one filled with goals. Both teams should be able to get at least one goal and that is enough to help you win this bet. The odds are not the best but still worth the risk in our opinion.
