Carlo Castellani – Saturday – Kick-off 8:45pm GMT.
The two sides will battle the encounter our at Carlo Castellani this Saturday, when Lazio will travel to Empoli in hope of points.
The Serie A is one of the most demanding leagues in the world, so Empoli will have to fight this season
The Serie A welcomes Empoli, coached by Aurelio Andreazzoli, after a great season last year. Now, the challenge is to avoid relegation and be part of the Serie A for many years to come, something achievable if they all work together.
Defense is the key to make an outstanding season, and that is exactly what they will try to do this year.
Empoli are likely to be missing one of their key players when they start Saturday’s game, due to injury and illness.
New season for Lazio; they will try to reach new heights
During last season, Lazio reached the 6th position in the standings after a hard year. For this season, they will have to step up their game if they want to succeed in the Serie A.
Attack is the best form of defence, or at least is what we can see sometimes, and that is what we can say today about the performance of the team last year, which was noteworthy, with a balance of 61 for and 55 goals against.
Injury and illness have depleted Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio and they will likely be missing one key personnel for Saturday’s match.
Empoli v Lazio – Head-to-Heads.
The recent form between these two sides has seen Lazio with a greater number of wins. In the last 22 meetings, they have enjoyed 13 victories, to Empoli’s four wins. Additionally, Lazio are unbeaten in their eleven of the last 20 matches played against Empoli. The last time they played each other in this competition was February 2019, when Azzurri walked away as 1-0 winners. With the statistics of both teams we expect to see an electric match with goals in both squads. That is the certain possibility, with a 60.24% of both teams scoring in this first round of the Serie A.
