Match preview 🖊
Overcoming the agonising Champions League exit will be top of the agenda for new Roma manager Claudio Ranieri against Serie A relegation battlers Empoli. Ranieri's second stint at the capital club hardly arises under ideal circumstances, after the club also got hammered in the Roma derby against Lazio and they remain three points away from the Champions League places. We expect them to get back on track here with a win though.
Team news 📰
New Roma boss Ranieri will have to do without a host of first-teamers tonight. Daniele De Rossi, Kostas Manolas and Lorenzo Pellegrini are all injured, while Edin Dzeko, Federico Fazio & Aleksandar Kolarov are suspended and there are injury doubts over Cengiz Under and exciting youngster Nicolo Zaniolo. Hardly ideal preparation for Ranieri. Patrik Schick and Stephan El Shaarawy are expected to feature in Roma's attack. Luca Antonelli is out for the visitors.
