Empoli Team News

Empoli’s Serie A fate hangs by a thread after conceding an equalizer in stoppage time against Udinese last Sunday, resulting in a 1-1 draw. This left them in 18th place with 33 points, one point behind Udinese and two behind Frosinone with one match remaining.

Since Frosinone and Udinese face each other on Sunday, Empoli must defeat Roma at the Carlo Castellani stadium to secure their place among Italy’s top teams. A draw, coupled with a Frosinone win, would mean a relegation play-off against Udinese. This is undoubtedly a tough task, as Empoli faces a Roma side still chasing a spot in the UEFA Champions League.

Empoli does have the advantage of finishing the season in front of their home fans, where they are unbeaten in their last three league matches (two wins and one draw). However, their home record against Roma is less encouraging, with two draws and five losses. Additionally, they suffered a heavy 7-0 defeat to the Giallorossi at the Stadio Olimpico in their last encounter in mid-September.

On the other hand, Roma secured a narrow 1-0 victory in their last match against Genoa, with Romelu Lukaku scoring in the 79th minute, keeping their Champions League hopes alive. However, for this to happen, Atalanta must finish exactly in fifth place, given that they won the Europa League title on Wednesday in Dublin by defeating Bayer Leverkusen 3-0 in the final.

Nevertheless, the Giallorossi, with 63 points one round before the end of the Serie A season, have already secured European football for the next season and will finish ahead of city rivals Lazio in the standings thanks to a better head-to-head record.

Despite a recent 2-1 defeat to Atalanta in Bergamo, which dashed their hopes of finishing in the top five and was their first away defeat since mid-January (four wins and three draws), Roma has performed well on the road in the preceding period.

Their strong head-to-head record against Empoli, including three consecutive wins at the Carlo Castellani stadium in which they scored at least two goals, should give them confidence ahead of Sunday night’s clash.

Empoli vs AS Roma H2H

In their last five encounters, Roma has achieved as many victories against Empoli.

Injuries and suspensions

Empoli: Tyronne Ebuehi is injured, while Etrit Berisha is questionable for this match. Alberto Grassi will not play on Sunday due to a red card in the match with Udinese.

AS Roma: Leonardo Spinazzola is injured, Romelu Lukaku will not play due to yellow cards, and Leandro Paredes due to red.

Empoli vs AS Roma Prediction

Although the hosts need a victory to stay in the league, Roma’s dominance in their head-to-head matches with Empoli, as well as their good away form throughout the season, suggest that the Giallorossi are unlikely to easily drop points on Sunday night.

Taking all this into consideration, along with the odds offered by bookmakers for this match, we have decided to go with the option that Roma will remain unbeaten at the Carlo Castellani stadium.
