Roma Prediction

A heavy 3-0 loss away to Lazio was followed by a 3-1 loss in extra time away at Portuguese outfit Porto in the 2nd leg of the round of 16 in the Europa League, and this prompted the club to make a move for former Fulham manager, Claudio Ranieri, who has sacked by the London club last week.

Ranieri now has to rally his troops following these recent back-to-back losses, but the hosts have home advantage at Stadio Olimpico where they’re unbeaten in their last seven matches on home soil, winning five of these matches.

Wins against Sampdoria, Genoa, Sassuolo, Torino and Bologna have maintained Roma’s bid for European football next season, but being six points adrift of 4th placed Inter Milan, the hosts will have to win Monday night’s clash with Empoli if they’re to make a claim for a top four finish in Serie A.

Nevertheless, a solid home record which stands at 7-4-1 30/18 should stand the hosts in good stead once more for this encounter, while forwards Dzeko (7 goals) and El Shaarawy (8 goals) will be keen to further add to their goal tallies here.

 

Key-Facts – Roma v Empoli

  • Roma are unbeaten in their last seven matches at home in Serie A
  • Roma have won 5 of these last 7 matches
  • Empoli have lost 4 of their last 5 matches away from home in Serie A

 

Empoli Prediction

Empoli continue to hover dangerously just above the relegation zone as they sit one league position and just one point above the bottom three as they face an extremely tough trip to face Roma who will be further boosted by the return of their successful former manager, Claudio Ranieri.

Empoli have managed just one win from their last 11 matches overall in Serie A which was a 3-0 home win over Sassuolo, but seven defeats within this 11-match sequence has meant that the visitors still remain firmly entrenched in the relegation battle at the bottom of the table.

The visitors possess a poor away record of 0-4-8 11/28 and this includes losing four of their last five matches on their travels with losses incurred at Fiorentina, Torino, Lazio and AC Milan, with a 2-2 draw at Cagliari saving their blushes.

These last five away matches have seen Empoli concede a total of 12 goals while scoring just 3 goals in reply, and this doesn’t bode well for their upcoming trip to Roma on Monday night.

Betting Tips Verdict

Roma will be desperate to return to winning ways under new boss Ranieri, and they have a great chance to do so against a poor travelling Empoli outfit here.
