Empoli – AS Roma : the probable compositions

This Monday at 8:45 p.m., AS Roma travel to the Carlo Castellani Stadium to face Empoli, as part of the 6th day of Serie A.

The Romans will be opposed to an opponent who still hasn’t had a single victory at the start of the championship and point to 15e place of the rank. Beaten 1-0 on the first day by La Spezia, Empoli then continued 4 draws : against Fiorentina (0-0), in Lecce (1-1), against Hellas Verona (1-1) and on the field of Salernitana last Monday (2-2).

On his side, Roma which is in 6th place of Serie A, suffered its first defeat of the season last weekend when it fell heavily on the lawn of Udinese (4-0) and a second defeat, in the middle of the week, when it entered the running in Europa League against Ludogorets (2-1). José Mourinho’s men therefore count 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss at the start of the championship.

Absences on both sides

The coach ofEmpoli will have to deal with absences of his defender Lorenzo Tonelliof his attackers: Right et change themas well as less used players such as: Baldanzi et Don’t worry. Rookies Lammaers and Satriano, both scorers against Salernitana last Monday (2-2), should be associated again on the front of the attack.

José Mourinho will also have to deal with a number of absences. Zaniolo, Wijnaldum, Kumbulla, Darboe and El Shaarawy will not be available for the trip to Empoli. Additionally, the attacker Tammy Abraham is doubtful for the match following his injury picked up in a Europa League match this week. This absence should therefore allow the recruit Andrea Belotti to honor his first start of the season in the league with the Roman club and to be associated with another summer recruit, the former Turinese: Paulo Dybala.

  • The probable eleven of Empoli (in 4-4-2): Vicar – Stojanovic, Ismajili, Luperto, Parisi – Haas, Marin, Bandinelli, Pjaca – Lammers, Satriano.
