After falling behind in the fourth minute of the match, Lazio struck back right away through Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Empoli made an unnecessary mistake which resulted in a corner kick for the Biancocelesti and they took the opportunity to equalize.
Felipe Anderson played the ball short to Pedro before receiving the ball back and whipping in a cross. Milinkovic-Savic rose high at the front post and beat Alessio Romagnoli to the ball.
His header went past Guglielmo Vicari in goal to bring Lazio level with Gli Azzurri in the sixth minute.
