Roma vs Empoli Prediction & Match Preview

Roma vs Empoli
Italian Serie A
Date: 4 February 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).

Roma will continue their battle for the top-four finish in Serie A on Saturday afternoon when they host Empoli in Gameweek No 21 at Stadio Olimpico.

La Lupa suffered a narrow 2-1 loss at the hands of Napoli last weekend away at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona after conceding a last-gasp goal by Giovanni Simeone.

While it was a painful loss, Jose Mourinho stated how proud he was of his players who gave the sovereign Serie A leaders a genuine game on the occasion.

The Romans now have two wins and a loss in the last three league games and they were also in action on Wednesday night in the Coppa Italia quarterfinal against Cremonese in the capital.

Mourinho’s men are sixth in the league table at the moment, still sitting only three points below second-placed Inter Milan.

That said, La Lupa will face a tough task on Saturday afternoon when they play host to Empoli who are unbeaten this year in the league.

Empoli blew away a two-goal lead by conceding a couple of late goals in the last weekend’s home stalemate against Torino.

These two goals should not decrease Empoli’s clean-sheet appeals, though, because the stern defensive line has been the team’s main strength in the last several months.

After all, Paolo Zanetti’s men have only shipped 24 goals in 20 league matches this term and they had kept their net untouched in back-to-back wins over Sampdoria and Inter Milan before the mentioned draw to Torino.

Nonetheless, we still believe the Romans will find that winner and eventually pick up big three points in the battle for the Champions League spots. Roma to win & Under 2.5 goals FT bet is our main option here at the 3.40 odds.
