AS Roma welcome the visitors Empoli in the Italian Serie A – Round 27. The match will be held on Monday, March, 11th, at the Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
AS Roma failed to progress to the Champions League quarterfinals and they were smashed by Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia quarterfinal. So, now they can concentrate on the Serie A fixtures. The team are presently 5th in the standings, which is a Europa League place, but they look to reach the top-four. The Romans are 3 points off the 4th tier, therefore, they will play for a win on Monday; their squad issues will certainly be apparent though.

Empoli are hovering above the relegation zone and they are in urgent need of points, however, the mess in their defense rarely provides for that: in 28 rounds, Empoli missed 50+ goals; that said, they are scoring over a goal per round, 1.3 goals, to be exact. Anyways, the team are worst league performers, thus, even a draw in the coming trip seems difficult; but, given Roma’s serious squad issues, the guests may try their chances.
The Roman outfit are strong on their soil: in 11 home fixtures of 12, they managed to rack up points. They outclass their Monday visitors but struggle these days. First, considering the hosts’ 5 recent matches, all of them saw the team miss, thus, Roma’s defense needs to be improved. Second, De Rossi, Manolas, Under, and Pellegrini have been injured, and Dzeko, Kolarov, and Fazio are under suspension. Moreover, Ranieri has been dismissed and Di Francesco has replaced him. As we see, the hosts have many problems. They are capable of winning at this, but Empoli will probably manage to upset them. We’re betting on both sides to score.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score.
