Empoli vs Roma

Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Carlo Castellani (Empoli).

After the initial stumble to their league campaign, Roma is making amends, and it is a dangerous prospect for any opposition. The mighty Catalans will testify for that claim. After emphatic victories in the league derby and Champions League match-ups, the Giallorossi is hungry for more.

A tie with Empoli right now is the perfect opportunity for the Romans to extend their exciting run. Eusebio Di Francesco’s men won’t spare any chance to punish Empoli for their leaking defence. Last three matches for Roma have been 3-1 derby victory against eternal rivals Lazio, 4-0 win against Frosinone and a Champions League group-stage victory of 5-0.

Empoli, the Serie B champions of last season is not at all enjoying their new life in the top tier. Disregarding the first round victory against Cagliari, rest of their league campaign has been shambolic. Winless in last six matches, four of them defeats; the Tuscans are really searching for answers.

To add insult to injury, Empoli will be lining up without their efficient captain and fullback, Manuel Pasqual. With just five goals in seven games, Aurelio Andreazzoli’s men have been lacking composure in the final third.

Empoli vs Roma Head-to-head

  • Roma is on a streak of three straight, huge wins.
  • Roma is deadly in set-pieces with a league-high, five goals, and in total 14 goals in seven matches.
  • In eight of last nine matches for Roma, the match goals tally has gone above 2.5.
  • In 21 ties between the teams, Roma has walked away with 14 wins, while Empoli has managed just two.

Empoli vs Roma Prediction

With just one win in seven league appearances, Empoli is finding life in the Serie A too difficult. Last six of their games have been winless. Their weakness in closing down attacks from the wing will be properly utilised by Roma.

Champions League hat-trick hero Edin Dzeko lines up along with Pellegrini and El Shaarawy, and with their attacking prowess and on-field chemistry, Empoli defence would find them too much to shut down.

With experience as well as recent form, this should be a comfortable outing for the team from the capital. Expect Roma to dominate from the first minute.
