Roma vs Empoli Predictions

A Clash of Aims and Ambitions

Key Stats
– Roma haven’t lost to Empoli in Serie A since February 2007.
– Empoli have suffered 11 losses against Roma since their last league victory.
– Roma’s defence has been breached in their last seven consecutive matches.

When Roma welcome Empoli to Stadio Olimpico this Sunday, it’s more than just a battle for three points. It’s a reflection of two teams’ aspirations for the 2023-34 Serie A campaign.

An Unsettled Start for the Capital Club

The Stadio Olimpico has witnessed some unforgettable moments in the past, but this season Roma’s form has been underwhelming. Despite the much-publicised acquisition of Romelu Lukaku on loan, Roma couldn’t leverage their one-man advantage against Milan after Fikayo Tomori’s red card. They only managed a solitary goal by Leonardo Spinazzola in a 2-1 defeat.

In stark contrast, during their last two seasons under Jose Mourinho, Roma had a blistering start with two wins from their first two fixtures. But their quest for a top-four spot this season after back-to-back sixth-place finishes has been hampered by their slower start. Relying heavily on their formidable record at home last year, the Giallorossi face a potential crisis, having dropped into Serie A’s relegation zone.

Mourinho’s focus might be partially diverted to the upcoming Europa League clash with Sheriff Tiraspol, but rectifying Roma’s domestic form takes precedence. With Tammy Abraham and Paulo Dybala both struggling with injuries, Lukaku’s role becomes even more pivotal.

Historically, Empoli shouldn’t present a daunting challenge, given that Roma boast a winning streak against them dating back to February 2007. But football, as they say, is unpredictable.

Empoli’s Struggle for Identity

Empoli’s track record in Rome has been dismal. Their last victory against Roma in Serie A feels like a distant memory, and since then, they’ve endured 11 losses, managing just three draws. Moreover, their inability to keep a clean sheet against the Giallorossi makes their task even more daunting. This season, the Azzurri are yet to register any points or goals. If they fail to alter this trend in Rome, they’d be joining a notorious list alongside Mantova and Padova – teams that lost their opening four matches without scoring.

Paolo Zanetti, Empoli’s coach, is feeling the heat. With defeats against Verona, Monza, Juventus, and an embarrassing exit from the Coppa Italia at the hands of Serie B side Cittadella, the pressure is mounting. Their away record from the previous season doesn’t inspire confidence either, making their trip to the capital even more challenging.

Key Players and Predictions

Roma will be without several vital players, including captain Lorenzo Pellegrini and potentially Gianluca Mancini and Renato Sanches. In their absence, young talents like Edoardo Bove could step up. Lukaku, who boasts an impressive scoring record against Empoli, will be looking to make his mark.

For Empoli, the absence of Elia Caprile in goal due to injury will be a blow. Francesco Caputo remains their primary goal threat, having scored their only competitive goal this season.

Prediction 1 (Market – Both teams to score): With Roma having seen both teams score in their last seven matches and Empoli desperately seeking a goal, both teams finding the net seems likely.

Prediction 2 (Correct Score): Given Roma’s home form and Empoli’s struggles, a 2-1 victory in favour of Roma could be on the cards.

Prediction 3 (Goalscorer Prediction): Romelu Lukaku is the man to watch. With three goals in just 104 minutes against Empoli, he’s our pick to score.
