Roma will visit Empoli ‘s home ground in week 6 of Serie A 2022/2023. The Italian League match at Carlo Castellani is scheduled to kick-off Tuesday 13 September 2022, at 01:45 WIB.
Rome has just swallowed two consecutive defeats. Last week, Roma were beaten 0-4 by hosts Udinese and forced to swallow their first defeat in Serie A this season.
Not yet recovered from the wound, Rome lost again. In the middle of last week, in their first match in the Europa League, Jose Mourinho’s team lost 1-2 to the host Ludogorets Razgrad. Roma’s one goal in that match was scored by Eldor Shomurudov from Lorenzo Pellegrini ‘s assist .
Against Ludogorets, Mourinho paired his two new strikers, Paulo Dybala and Andrea Belotti. However, despite being supported by five quality midfielders, Roma failed to achieve positive results.
Against Empoli, Roma is certainly determined to break its bad trend. Mourinho needs to get his squad back to their best.
Empoli itself is still without a win in Serie A this season. However, if Roma play as badly as in their last two games, it will be difficult for them to get the three points.
