Round 6 of the Italian Seria A ends tonight and we bring you the best Seria A Monday bet with this Empoli v AS Roma prediction for. It’s no coincidence that the people running Italian football have set this particular game as the late night showdown. They know all too well that whenever you have Jose Mourinho, the drama is guaranteed and this is bound to glue the sports fans to the screens. Roma have started this season with a lot of hope after making a number of good moves in the transfer market this summer. However, the enthusiam has been fading in recent weeks after a string of poor results.
Roma On The Ropes
The Giallorossi enter this game on a bad run. In their last Seria A match, they suffered a shock 4:0 defeat at Udinese. To add to their misery, a Ludogorets side from Bulgaria managed to dominate the game and beat them 2:1 in the opening game of the Europa League’s group stage.

With that said, Jose Mourinho knows quite well that he needs to get a response from his players. Failure to beat Empoli will seriously damage what was a really positive atmoshpere surrounding the club just a couple of weeks ago.
The good news for Jose and his Lupi is that two key players, perhaps his most important figures, are set to make a return for this game against Empoli. This is just the right timing for the team to get a boost, particularly at the offensive end. The players in question are Tamy Abraham and Nicola Zaniolo, two of the starting three up front (with Dybala). I’m not sure if either one would be able to start, but they should feature in the game, and that’s definitely great news and an important factor in this Empoli v AS Roma prediction. We expect to see Abraham given a starting place, while Zaniolo to enter in the second half.
Empoli – A Strange Team On A Strange Run
Empoli are yet to win a game this season, yet they have collected four points from four straight draws! They are currently 16th in the table with 2 points over the relegation zone, if that even matters that much so early in the season. They are on another bizzare run – 12 straight games without a win against Roma, so could the 13th one be luck for them?
In my opinion, Empoli have taken a step back this year. They failed to keep a hold of Inter loanee Pinamontti as they could not come with the Nerazzuri’s asking price of 20 million euro, so now they have to make up for his 13 goals last year. For this task, they have decided to rely on another loanee from Inter – Urugayan striker Satriano, who was actually able to score his first goal in their last match – a 2:2 draw at. Satriano is usually paired in attack with the Dutchman Sam Lamers who managed to score just one goal in a total of 513 minutes all season for Eintracht Frankfurt. That’s not the greatest goal-per-minute ratio as you can probably guess.
Perhaps Empoli’s strongest area is their midfield, where they have good players in the likes of Grassi, Henderson, and Pjaca. These three players are capable of reading the game, making good runs and create 2-on-1 situations with their drbbling skills.
