AS Roma vs Empoli Preview

AS Roma vs Empoli

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio Olimpico

Date: 11th March 2019

Kick-off time – 19:30 GMT

AS Roma will be heading into this game after losing their last two competitive matches.

Those losses spelt the end of the road for former manager and a swift return to management for recently sacked Claudio Ranieri.

The Italian has been tasked with taking the club back into the Champions League placings by the end of this season.

The home side come here unbeaten in their last 7 games at home, 5 of which have ended in wins for them.

However, Roma have struggled to shut teams out this season and all of those seven games have ended in both teams finding the back of the net.

Empoli fought hard to earn a 3-3 home draw against Parma last time out. That draw helped them stay 4 points off the relegation zone and they would be keen to get another result in this game.

There are 12 more games to play in the Italian league season for these two teams and they will both be keen on completing their season’s objective.

Roma are currently 3 points off the top four and have just 3 points more than Lazio who are hot on their trail.

Claudio Ranieri will be looking to kick off his reign with a win in front of their home fans.

Bookmakers have priced AS Roma up as strong odds-on favourites to come out on top in this game while goal markets point a high-scoring game as over 2.5 goals is trading odds-on.

Edin Dzeko is favourite with bookies to score the opening goal of the game closely followed by Stephen El Shaarawy and Patrik Schick.

This game gets underway at 19:30 BST.
