Empoli, Roma, to avoid more losses

Both clubs in a losing streak, Empoli and AS Roma is hoping that they could finally take home a Serie A victory. Roma’s record in their away matches do not look optimistic as they currently experience successive defeats in their away games. On the other hand, Empoli is currently winless in the league in their first five league games this season. They had four consecutive draws and one defeat. Different situation of being winless, yet a win is a win. Both clubs are in-need of a win and they will try to finally score a victory in this match.

Empoli host their match against Roma, giving them a home advantage, despite a currently winless season. On their last game, they were held to a 2-2 draw by Salernitana which gives them their fourth draw this season. As they are currently winless, they are now the 16th in the standings. On the other hand, for the Roma, they suffered their first league defeat after falling short against Udinese. For their current Europa League campaign, they also suffered a defeat as Ludogorets beat them, 2-1.

Although Roma experience successive defeats in their home games, they had an impressive start in the new season. They are currently tied at the top of Serie A standings before their defeats against Udinese. Their loss against Udinese is as bad as their away record as they were defeated 4-0. When they had their campaign in the Europa League, they also suffered a defeat, failing to redeem themselves. Although they will encounter an away game once again, they have a good record against their opponent. Roma only lost two of its 12 matches against Empoli. In fact, they won five of their last meetings against their opponent.

Andrea Belotti and Mile Svilar were handed their first starts last match, but both failed to make an impact. However, for their next match, it is expected that these two will finally make an impact for Roma. Moreover, Tammy Abraham and Karsdorp are both nursing their injuries and will not suit up for this game. But these two could finally play on their next match after Empoli. Marash Kumbulla, Stephan El Shaarawy, and Gerogino Wijnaldum will all remain on the sideline.


Serie A: Empoli

Empoli’s current Serie A campaign does not look well as they were not able to score in four of their last six matches. Scoring a goal has been a problem for this squad since the start of the season, resulting to them being winless. Empoli draws four of their matches which is against Fiorentina, Lecce, Verona, and Salernitana. On their last game, the squad managed to get the lead, but the match still ended in a draw. Empoli is now at the bottom six which is not a good sight for them. They only garnered four points in all of their matches so this match is really a must-win for them. If they want to go on winning ways, this club must start winning in this game.

This squad will continue their matches without Nicolo Cambiaghi, Lorenzo Tonelli, and Tommaso Baldanzi because of their respective injuries. Moreover, Mattia Destro will also miss their game against his former club. Sam Lammers is expected to lead his squad as he is also the one who managed to score on their last game.
