Lazio vs Empoli Predictions and Free Tips from our expert tipsters when the teams go head-to-head in Italian Serie A on Sunday, 8 January 2023.

Lazio are placed fifth in the table at the moment. But as a result of a tough schedule lately (which involved them taking on previous champions Juventus), they dropped some valuable points. Their immediate objective would be to secure their spot in the top-five.

Meanwhile, Empoli have been a mess right from the start of the season. Particularly on the road they have been finding it hard to deliver good results. In fact, they have a single win away from home, and it came against the inconsistent Bologna.
