Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Roma have seen both teams score in seven straight competitive games, conceding twice or more in each of their three matches this term. Empoli have seen BTTS land in seven of their last 11 outings and they can capitalise against a defence which has conceded in their last six home league games.

Roma 2-1

Reason for tip

Roma have not lost against Empoli in Serie A since 2007, winning 11 of the last 14 clashes between them. While Empoli have lost their opening three games without scoring, only twice in the history of Serie A has a side lost each of their opening four games to nil. Back Roma to concede once again in a narrow, vital victory.

Romelu Lukaku To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Lukaku arrived in Rome to fanfare and he can quickly impress the home support, having averaged a goal every 35 minutes in his previous Serie A clashes with Empoli.

Roma vs Empoli Predictions

  • Empoli have seen BTTS in seven of their last 11 competitive games
  • Roma have conceded in seven straight games, letting in at least two goals in all three games this term
  • The hosts are without a clean sheet in their last six home league games

Shaky start for Roma

Jose Mourinho has made his career out of defensive setups, rolling back the years at Roma to make his safety-first style work in Europe once more. While Mourinho has taken the Giallorossi to two European finals in two seasons, they’ve looked defensively vulnerable of late.

Roma have seen both teams score across each of their last seven matches in all competitions, while they’ve conceded at least twice in every Serie A game so far. The hosts have gone six league games without a clean sheet, exposing some defensive issues which have left them winless after three games.

Lukaku’s arrival can inspire hosts

Of course, Mourinho gets the striker his side have been crying out for this weekend. Romelu Lukaku is set to make his debut and there’s every expectation he can make a great start. The forward has been involved in three goals in just 104 minutes against Empoli, averaging a strike every 35 minutes. Back that fine record to continue this weekend.

However, Roma’s defensive setup is likely to cost them in this clash. The Giallorossi have conceded in six straight home league games and while Empoli have struggled early on this term, seven of their last 11 competitive games have seen both teams score.
