Empoli and Roma had contrasting results in their respective debuts in the new Serie A season. While the newly promoted side incurred a zero-goal defeat to Udinese, the last season’s runners up obtained a two-goal clean sheet against Fiorentina.
These results put the sides in the 2nd and 19th spots in the league table, respectively, showing a potential base ranking for the rest of the competition. Both sides, however, had excellent runs in their pre-season friendlies, especially Empoli who scored a stellar 0-10 away win versus Lampo 1919. Roma, meanwhile, seized five goals from and conceded none to Eltendorf. Head to head, the teams last met in 2008 in the Italian top-tier football, with Giallorossi as the eventual winners.
12BET Football betting tip: Roma will score their second clean sheet victory from their tourney against Empoli.
