Meanwhile, Empoli played to a 0-0 draw with Frosinone Calcio at home on 5 May and they are winless in their last two matches in the Serie A.
The Blues are also winless in their last four away matches in the competition having registered four successive defeats on the road.
Team News
Mario Gila is the only player on Lazio's injury list at the moment, but the Eagles have no suspension issues coming into this encounter.
Empoli, on the other hand, also do not have suspension concerns, but Tyronne Ebuehi, Alberto Cerri, Sebastian Walukiewicz and Etrit Berisha are currently injured.
“It was not our best performance, but we take this point against a quality opponent," Lazio manager Igor Tudor said after his side's draw with Monza.
"We could've done more, both when defending and attacking. Monza moved the ball around well, we were too deep on their crosses. It's difficult to analyse, but it certainly wasn't one of our better games. 
"Monza did better than us, there were too many players who were below par. Monza are a very good team and we weren't at our best, so every point is important."
Lazio claimed a 2-0 win over Empoli in their last meeting in the league which was on 22 December 2023 at the Stadio Carlo Castellani – Computer Gross Arena.
As a result, the Eagles are undefeated in their last 10 Serie A matches against the Blues having registered eight wins and two draws.
