Lazio - form analysis: Change in coach has been beneficial

The "Eagles" even won against Juventus in the Coppa Italia semi-final. However, they faced a 0-2 deficit in Turin, and despite a late equalizer at home, they were eliminated. In Serie A under Tudor, they have won most of their matches, except for the crucial derby against Roma. They are still trying to catch up with Roma and push them out of the top 5 Serie A spots. The 2-2 draw with Monza was a clear setback in this context.

Empoli - form analysis: Dependence on home factor is noticeable

The "Blues" haven't looked convincing this season. They brought in a coach who specializes in survival, Davide Nicola. However, things haven't quite worked out, especially in their spring away matches. But at home, they managed to get the maximum points: 3-2 against Torino, 1-0 against Napoli - which helped them stay above the relegation zone. However, they were planning to win against Frosinone but ended up with a goalless draw at home.
