Lazio to score 3+ goals against Empoli in Thursday’s Serie A matchup
Competition: Serie A
Market: Lazio to score 3+ goals
Odds: 11/10 @ Bet 365
Looking to climb back into the Champions League positions, Lazio will welcome a struggling Empoli side to the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday night.
Starting with the hosts, although Lazio might start Thursday’s match outside of the top-four, the Blues should believe they’re still in pole position to secure Champions League football. In their 22 Serie A matches this season, they have won 10, drawn five and lost seven, scoring 31 and conceding 25 in return. With a points tally of 35, another win on Thursday would see them climb back into the top-four. As for their recent run of form, Lazio have now won their last two matches on the bounce and have lost just one of their last seven domestic matches at the Stadio Olimpico.
As for the visitors, still enduring a very worrying of form entering the New Year, many have Empoli tipped to be a leading contender in the relegation race. In their 22 Serie A matches this season, they have won just four, drawn six and lost the remaining 12. Now scoring 27 and conceding 44 in return, Empoli currently hold the joint worse defensive record in Italy’s top-tier. With a points tally of 18, they also now hold just a point buffer over the drop zone. As for their recent run of form, the visitors have failed to win any of their last four and have conceded two or more goals in each of those outings.
