LAZ vs EMP Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Lazio can move into the Champions League places when they host a beleaguered Empoli in the Serie A at Stadio Olimpico, in Rome, Italy, on Thursday night (IST).
Season so far:
Other teams have improved significantly in the Serie A this season. Juventus lead the way, while Napoli managed to hold onto their prized assets and remain a threat. While AC Milan bolstered their roster in both the summer and winter transfer window, and look a Champions League material.
So in a sense, Lazio were always going to have a fight on their hands towards reaching the last season’s points tally of 72 points. In any other season, that return would have been enough for them to snatch a top-4 place but not the last season.
So by comparison, Lazio have gone a few notches down having collected 35 points from the first 22 games. At this rate, the Sky Blues will be reaching at near about 60 points for the season.
Champions League still more than a possibility:
However, it’s not only Lazio but there are other teams who have failed to touch the heights of last season, AS Roma being one of those teams.
That’s why, despite dropping so many points, Biancocelesti are just 1 point adrift of the top-4 place as things stand in the Serie A. As Simone Inzaghi’s men play this match before their rivals this weekend, the hosts will be breaking into the top-4 with a win in this game.
Danger looms for Empoli:
Empoli came into existence some 99 years ago. They have spent 83 years of their life-fighting in the competitive tiers. But the club has enjoyed only 13 years of life in Serie A, including this season which they achieved after winning the 2017-18 Serie B campaign.
But the recent results indicate a fast track movement towards the 2nd tier. They are winless in the last seven league games and sit just one point above the relegation zone as things stand.
The Shining light:
The negativity can’t help anybody, and Empoli would get nothing if they gauge into their recent slump. The good part of their season is they did enjoy a period which should give the whole team a lift.
A four-game unbeaten period where Empoli won three games and effectively earned 10 of their 18 points.
