Tip Reasoning

  • The hosts league home games are seeing an average of 4.2 goals per game.
  • Both teams have scored in five of Lazio’s previous six matches.
  • Both teams have found the back of the net in nine of Empoli’s prior 10 games.

A strong start to the New Year is required for Lazio

The hosts come into this one off the back of two successive 3-1 victories that saw out the year and as a result, they’re within touching distance of the top six. If they’re to finish there for the fifth time in six years then a strong start to the new year is integral and they couldn’t have asked for a better opponent to do so than Empoli, a side they’ve beaten in six straight head-to-head matches.

Visitors Empoli were dealt a 4-2 defeat at the hands of AC Milan last time out, but prior to that game, they were on a run of six matches unbeaten and somewhat surprisingly, now sit just five points off from the top six. It’s testament to their spirit that Empoli have won 50% of their away Serie A matches when priced up as underdogs and they’ll believe they can cause another upset here.

Goals at both ends likely

Lazio are scoring an average of 2.77 goals per home game this season and it seems highly unlikely that they will fail to get on the scoresheet at least once here. The visitors, however, can cause problems of their own and we’re expecting an exciting game. As such, we think both teams will score and there will be at least three goals in the match with Lazio claiming victory.
