Tip Reasoning

  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 11 of Empoli’s last 14 games.
  • Roma’s last three away trips have all featured over 2.5 goals, with a total of 14 goals being scored across those contests.
  • Roma beat Empoli at home earlier this season, and Empoli are winless in their last six.

Empoli out of form, but remain a danger to Mourinho’s men?

Empoli have gone six matches without a win in league and cup action, but have continued to entertain as a result of their frantic high-pressing approach. Aurelio Andreazzoli’s team have conceded a massive 20 goals in their last seven outings, but netted 14 of their own in that time, and only seven teams, amongst them six contenders for European football, have managed more shots in Serie A this term.

Roma beat Empoli at the Stadio Olimpico earlier this campaign, and earned an important 1-0 win at Cagliari last time out, after high-scoring defeats to Milan and Juventus. Jose Mourinho’s team have seen 14 goals scored in their last three away games in all competitions, winning two of those exciting contests.

In truth, Mourinho’s men have struggled on the road all season, managing four wins and six losses on their travels despite averaging almost two goals per game away from home. Indeed, while end-to-end encounters are not typically associated with the special one’s teams, Roma’s 10 away Serie A games under Mourinho have contained a total of 35 goals to date.

Over 2.5 goals is the safest play?

Considering Roma’s poor away record, as well as Empoli’s six-match winless run, punters are advised to ignore the win markets and to back goals ahead of Sunday’s clash. Empoli’s enthralling style of play has drawn much admiration this season, but their defensive record is worse than all bar Serie A’s bottom two, despite their impressive mid-table position after promotion last summer.

While over 2.5 match goals looks a strong play, an entertaining 3-2 win for Roma could provide some value on the correct score market, considering Empoli’s poor defensive record and the strong attacking returns of Tammy Abraham and co.
