Seria A (week 25) – Empoli F.C. – S.S. Lazio

The bottom of the league Empoli , versus the motivated Lazio. Will Ciro Immobile score once again for Lazio?

Game Starts Saturday, February 18, at 20.45 at the Stadio Carlo Castellani

Recent form:

This Saturday we got the game of the bottom of the league Empoli versus the Lazio. We can easily say that Lazio is the big favorite here.In the last three games Empoli only managed to collect one point in which Palermo won over them . Even though that Empoli lost to Inter 2-0 the previous match they are still above the relegation table with 22 points above Pescara,Crotone and Palermo. Palermo did not use their chance to grab a point versus Juventus , losing 4-1 meaning that Empoli playing home have a chance to get some points and get away from the relegation table even more. But here the big team is Lazio ,  in this duel they are desperate to get the 3 points after that draw with Milan. They got the draw at 1;1 even though they were playing very good the whole match dropping the last 10minutes with their pace.

Empoli – Info

For this matchup the manager of Empoli , Giovanni Martusciello must motivate and make his players win this match versus Lazio. Its not really expected from the bottom 3 teams to get out of relegation but Empoli must try to play a better football and try to get the 3 points in this game. A big plus for Empoli is that versus Lazio in the last 3 matches in all competitions they took the 3 points. So the Empoli side has a big chance to get these 3 and move up from the entrance of the red pit.  Giovanni Martusciello can expect Giuseppe Bellusci after the suspension to be in the team. There are three playes that maybe wont start in this game.  One of them is Manuel Pasqual that is injured and wont start, so another start for Federico Dimarco is on the count.

GOALKEEPERS: Skorupski;

DEFENDERS: Veseli, Laurini, Cosic, Dimarco;

MIDFIELDERS: Krunic, Diousse, Croce; ATTACKING/MIDFIELDER: El Kaddouri;

FORWARDS: Pucciarelli, Maccarone

SUSPENDED : None

Lazio – Info

For Lazio this is a must win match as they failed to get a win in their three last matches. They dropped to the sixth place cause of those failed chances of grabbing those 3 points. Beside their dominant play style they are still one point behind the fourth and fifth place Inter and Atalanta. After the dominant 1st half versus Milan and half of the 2nd half they still didn’t managed to get their 3 points after the 85th minute goal from Suso the game versus Milan ended in the result of 1;1.  For this game only Federico Marchetti is the unavailable player for Simone Inzaghi, so for his place Thomas Strakosha will start the game. Even thought is was expected for Lulic to not start in the first team.

Simeone Inzaghi said:

remained off the start against Pescara and Milan but is ready and I think tomorrow will play

Inzaghi called out Ciro Immobile saying that he is all ways helping the team in any way and that he is ready for the game tomorrow.

Simeone Inzaghi words were: C has always helped the team, last Monday was procured from the penalty spot

GOALKEEPERS: Strakosha;

DEFENDERS: Basta, de Vrij, Hoedt, Radu;

MIDFIELDERS: Parolo, Biglia, Milinkovic-Savic;

FORWARDS: Anderson, Immobile, Keita;

SUSPENDED : None

Prediction

In this game Lazio is the team that should and is a well favored. Empoli only have the home advantage in their hands cause we know that they are not that strong of a team as Lazio. I think that here Lazio could get this win with a minimal goal advantage , and I think that Empoli could score atleast one goal versus Lazio but the win should be easily achievable for Empoli.
