Roma vs Empoli Match Preview
Roma come into this on the back of a confidence denting defeats crashing out of the Champions League in midweek to Porto and losing to local rivals Lazio last weekend in Serie A. They still were in fifth place going into the weekend action and in the race for a top-four finish which would see them make the Champions League.
At the Stadio Olimpico, the Yellow and Reds are unbeaten in their last seven in the league with five ending in victory. A feature of these matches is both teams scoring which has happened in all of these seven.
Empoli fought back three times from behind last weekend to claim a point in a home draw with Parma. It allows them to gap a narrow gap of four points between themselves and Bologna in 18th which is the third and final relegation spot.
Away from Via de Pianezzoli, the Blues are poor and are still seeking their first league victory of the season. In three of their last four on their travels they have failed to net while keeping just one road clean sheet this campaign.
Roma are strong favourites to win this game but given the kind of week they have had with the sacking of a manager, a Champions League defeat in extra-time and a local derby loss to Lazio it is hard to judge them. Empoli represent a kind fixture as they are still without a victory on the road this season.
A better bet here is to take Nicolo Zaniolo to score as the young midfielder has three in his last four at home and will be looking to impress the new manager. In addition, I like the second 45 minutes to be the highest scoring half as Roma have tired legs from midweek while a draw suits neither side.
