“The important thing was to win the game tonight,” new Roma star Sergio Oliveira said after their win over Cagliari. 
“We were able to do that and come away with the three points – it’s just a shame we couldn’t have more fans with us here tonight due to the new rules. 
"We are pleased with the win though and focused on the next game. But above all I am pleased for the team because we won the game.”
The last meeting between Empoli and Roma in a league game was on 3 October 2021.
Roma ran out 2-0 winners over Empoli in a match that was played at Stadio Olimpico which is owned by the Italian National Olympic Committee.
