Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Roma will look to make amends for an embarrassing 4-0 loss to Udinese when they take on Empoli on Monday evening. The Giallorossi are eyeing their fourth win of the process, and they are surely capable of matching the Azzurri at Stadio Carlo Castellani. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team, but all Marash Kumbulla, Stephan El Shaarawy, Nicolo Zaniolo, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Ebrima Darboe remain in the treatment room.
Empoli, on the other hand, have drawn each of their last four league fixtures, but Roma will pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. In their last meeting at the venue Roma outplayed Empoli 4-2, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered. Both Lorenzo Tonelli and Nicolo Cambiaghi continue to miss out through injuries, while Tommaso Baldanzi is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Highlighted Team (AS Roma):
AS Roma is a professional football club based in Rome. Roma were founded by a merger in 1927 and they play in the Italian Serie A. Roma’s fiercest rivals are Lazio and it has to be noted that both capital clubs play their home games at Stadio Olimpico.

The colour of Roma’s shirts is imperial purple with a golden yellow trim. A number of top-class footballers were part of Roma in the past, but Francesco Totti is undisputedly the club’s biggest legend.The Prince of Rom made his 601 appearances for Roma on 14 May, 2016 when the Giallorossi recorded a 3-1 win over Milan at Stadio San Siro.
