  • Competition: Italy - Serie A
  • Date: Sunday, 17th, September 2023
  • Kickoff: 19:45 UTC +1 / 20.45 CEST
  • Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome)

AS Roma will aim to redeem themselves in front of their fans after a disastrous start to the Serie A campaign by seeking all three points when they host bottom-placed Empoli at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.

Despite their fantastic work in this summer's transfer market and, what's more crucial, retaining the core components from the previous season, AS Roma couldn't have initiated the 2023-24 Serie A campaign in a more negative fashion. The popular She-Wolf, set to embark on its UEFA Europa League journey next Thursday, thanks to a sixth-place finish last season, is still in search of the taste of victory in this year's Serie A edition, managing only a single point from the opening three rounds.

While Mourinho's men may not be feeling great about their gloomy start, the consolation lies in the fact that their Sunday opponent is in an even tougher situation. Indeed, Gli Azzurri are firmly anchored at the bottom of the Serie A table, as they have failed to notch a single point after three matches so far. Among other things, their disastrous season kick-off includes a shocking 1-2 loss to Cittadella in the Coppa Italia before falling to Verona, Monza, and Juventus.

AS Roma vs Empoli Betting Tips: AS Roma to Win

The crucial part of Mourinho's system, the defense, has failed to live up to expectations at the season's commencement, resulting in them conceding at least two goals in each of the first three top-flight matches. However, the comprehensive performance of Roma is poised for enhancement this weekend as they host Empoli, Serie A's most lackluster goal-scorers, who not only languish without points but have failed to register a single goal in their first three fixtures.

Despite being under significant pressure, Jose Mourinho is likely to feel relief when he sees Empoli visiting the Italian capital, considering that his Roma boasts a 100% record against Gli Azzurri under his leadership - four encounters and four victories. If we add to that the fact that the temperament Portuguese coach will finally be able to field Lukaku and Dybala from the first minute, anything but a win for the Roman club would be a major surprise in the fourth week of Serie A.

AS Roma team news

The much-anticipated moment has arrived for Jose Mourinho, as he can finally count on the Belgian-Argentinian duo of Romelu Lukaku and Paulo Dybala from the very start against Empoli. But before that, he'll need to confirm Dybala's readiness, considering his absence in their last 1-2 loss to AC Milan.

Meanwhile, Roma is wrestling with considerable squad concerns as they navigate the early stages of the season. One of the players in doubt for Sunday's clash is Houssem Aouar, who experienced discomfort in his left thigh flexor during the encounter with the Rossoneri.

Arriving on loan from Bayer Leverkusen, Sardar Azmoun found himself unable to kick off his stint with the current club due to a calf injury. However, the Algerian marked his return to full training last week, hinting at a possible inclusion on Sunday.

Elia Caprile, the 22-year-old shot-stopper on loan from Napoli, the current Serie A champions, underwent an ankle sprain and is facing several months on the sidelines. While coach Paolo Zanetti experimented with both backup goalkeepers in the previous two Serie A fixtures, it's likely that Samuele Perisan will reclaim the starting spot this Sunday.

This summer, Daniel Maldini, the 21-year-old midfielder and son of legendary AC Milan defender Paolo Maldini, made his way to Empoli on loan from the Rossoneri. But his eagerly anticipated debut in the blue jersey has been put on hold as he contends with a nagging thigh injury.
