Roma vs Empoli
Italy Serie A,
Date: Sunday, 3 October 2021
Kick-off 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico.
Roma will be looking to bounce back from a Derby della Capitale defeat as they host recently-promoted Empoli on Sunday afternoon at Stadio Olimpico.
Roma suffered their second defeat of the Serie A campaign last weekend when they fell 3-2 to bitter enemies Lazio in the famous Derby della Capitale.
Jose Mourinho’s men did not deserve to lose as they were a better outfit on the occasion.
I Giallorossi created as many as eight shots on target (to Lazio’s four) and had as many as 20 attempts in total (to Lazio’s 10).
Roma continued their fine attacking distribution on Thursday evening in the UEFA Europa League, though.
They had 10 shots on target in a commanding 0-3 victory at Ukrainian Premier League side Zorya.
The Romans also generally got off to a decent start to the Serie A campaign with four wins in the opening six rounds.
They will have a nice opportunity to extend their superb attacking displays here against Empoli who fancied attacking-minded football so far in the season.
Empoli will travel to the capital on the back of consecutive wins over Cagliari and Bologna. They’ve bagged six goals in the process.
However, Aurelio Andreazzolli’s men can be vulnerable defensively. They’ve shipped 10 goals in six games so far in the season and their back line will be heavily exposed here against free-scoring Roma.
Roma vs Empoli Head-to-head
- Roma also have the head to head record to back them up here against Empoli.
- The hosts won 10, drew 2 and lost 0 of the last 12 matches against Empoli at Stadio Olimpico.
- Roma have scored at least two goals in five of the last six clashes with Empoli.
Roma vs Empoli Prediction
The home win in a high-scoring affair is the way to go here. We will particularly be looking towards Tammy Abraham who should have plenty of space to deliver up front past the attacking-minded Empoli.
The former Chelsea striker came on from the bench to play the final 30 minutes of the mid-week’s game at Zorya and managed to find the net during that time. He is 1.80 to score anytime here.
