*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

The hosts are the clear favourites according to the Lazio vs Empoli odds with an implied probability of 62.5% that they win this, a result that could do real damage to the visiting team’s survival hopes.

Lazio are certainly the form team, but their three game winning streak did come to an end last time out with a 2-2 draw at Monza in a game the side from the capital twice led through Ciro Immobile and Matias Vecino.

Empoli were involved in a tense relegation six pointer against Frosinone in their last match with the game ending goalless.

Lazio Preview: Casale missing with foot injury

There’ll be no Nicolo Casale this weekend for Lazio but he was only used off the bench at Monza so an unchanged starting lineup is possible.

Predicted Lineup: Mandas (GK), Hysaj, Romagnoli, Patric, Zaccagni, Kamada, Guendouzi, Marusic, Alberto, Anderson, Immobile

Player to watch – Ciro Immobile

Lazio striker Ciro Immobile will be one of the main goal threats in this game. The experienced forward returned to the starting eleven last weekend to end a relatively long goal drought by firing in his seventh goal of the season in Serie A and first in any competition since his Champions League winner against Bayern Munich in February.

Immobile’s early impact

The 34 year old’s goals have been relatively spread out this season, but his favourite time to score in the league has been the opening 15 minutes with two strikes in that time period, both against Monza.
