Lazio Preview – Sarri’s side to secure third straight win?

Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio are in eighth place in the current Serie A standings. The Eagles have had a mixed bag of results this season, winning nine, drawing four and losing six of 19. Nevertheless, they are well and truly in the mix for the European spots.

After a poor 2-1 loss at Sassuolo, Lazio have bounced back with two important victories. They beat Genoa 3-1 at home before winning by the same scoreline at Venezia three days before Christmas. As they seek to put pressure on the teams above, Lazio will be after another three points here.

Our betting prediction:
Lazio to win & both teams to score

(odds taken 0837 GMT, Wednesday 6 January)

They have struggled in some recent home games, but only Juventus have left the Olimpico with all three points this season. The bookies have Lazio priced at just 3/5 to win this one.

Empoli Preview – Can the Tuscany club keep up fine away form?

Empoli were in good form at the end of 2021, losing just one of their last seven league and cup games of the year. They were beaten at home by AC Milan in their last one, but the Blues had won four and drawn two of six before that.

Empoli’s away form this term has taken many by surprise. At the halfway stage, only Roma and Verona have secured home victories over the club from Tuscany. They are unbeaten in four league and cup away fixtures, winning two and drawing two.
