AS Roma vs Empoli: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online – Serie A 2023/24

A disastrous start to the Serie A season has ramped up the pressure on AS Roma, and the Giallorossi are desperate for a first win of the campaign as they face bottom club Empoli.


AS Roma return from the international break desperate to get their Serie A season on track when they take on Empoli in Matchday 4 at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.

The Giallorossi have endured a dreadful start to the campaign and sit in 18th place on just a single point, with the pressure ramped up on coach Jose Mourinho and his squad.

Empoli, meanwhile, are rooted to the foot of the table and are the only team in Serie A yet to pick up a point, but will be hoping to claim the scalp of Roma in the capital to kickstart their season.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Roma may hand a full debut to striker Romelu Lukaku following his cameo against AC Milan last time out, with the Chelsea loanee partnered by Paulo Dybala.

Tammy Abraham and Marash Kumbulla are long-term absentees, whilst midfielders Renato Sanches and Houssem Aouar are unlikely to feature.

Having failed to score yet this season, Empoli are desperate for goals and look to Francesco Caputo to provide them. The former Sassuolo man is likely to be flanked by Tommaso Baldanzi and Nicolo Cambiaghi.

Goalkeeper Elia Caprile is out with a serious ankle injury, whilst Daniel Maldini faces a fitness test ahead of the trip to the capital.

AS Roma predicted XI vs Empoli (3-5-2): Rui Patricio; Mancini, Ndicka, Llorente; Kristensen, Sanches, Paredes, Cristante, Spinazzola; Dybala, Lukaku

Empoli predicted XI vs AS Roma (4-3-3): Perisan; Ebeuhi, Ismajli, Luperto, Cacace; Marin, Grassi, Fazzini; Baldanzi, Caputo, Cambiaghi
