The AS Roma team will challenge the Empoli team in a Matchday 4 Serie A Italy in Stadio Olimpico Stadium, Roma on Sunday, September 17, 2023. For streaming coverage of AS Roma vs Empoli, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Roma will try to achieve their first win in Serie A 2023/24 when they host Empoli at the Stadio Olimpico at noon (17/9). Jose Mourinho’s team is in crisis after only winning 1 point from the first 3 matches. However, they have a big chance to recover because they will field the deadly attacking duo Romelu Lukaku and Paulo Dybala.
Lukaku has recovered from injury and is ready to play from the start. He is on fire with the Belgian national team in the EURO 2024 qualifiers, and is confident he can score goals for Roma. He has worked with Mourinho at Chelsea and Man Utd before, and said he was “ready to run through a brick wall” for his coach.
Dybala is also fit and can play with Lukaku on the front line. He is a key player for Roma, with the ability to create chances and finish off attacks. He also has a good record against Empoli, with 4 goals and 2 assists in the previous 7 meetings.
Roma also have a good record at home to the Olimpico, with 13 wins, 3 draws and only 4 defeats. They have also always won in the last 5 home matches against Empoli, scoring a total of 14 goals and conceding only 2 goals.
As for Empoli, they are in poor form after losing all their last 5 matches in all competitions. They have also not been able to score a goal in Serie A this season, and are in bottom position.
Empoli have also never won in their last 11 visits to Roma headquarters, with 7 defeats and 5 draws. Apart from that, of the last 23 meetings with Roma, Empoli only won 2 times, drew 4 times and lost 17 times.
Empoli coach Paolo Zanetti has no new injury problems, but he may not be able to use attacking midfielder Daniel Maldini who is still recovering. He will rely on veteran striker Francesco Caputo to try to score against Roma.
According to AS Roma legend, Francesco Totti, Roma has a great chance of achieving their first win of the new season. As long as attackers like Lukaku and Dybala can take advantage of the opportunities that exist, then Mourinho and his team will achieve their goals.
