Kick-off is at 15h00  
A relegation-threatened side Empoli FC will host AS Roma in a Serie A match at the Stadio Carlo Castellani on 26 May.
Current Form
The Blues played to a 1-1 draw with Udinese Calcio away on 19 May and they are winless in their last four matches in the Italian top-flight. 
However, Empoli are undefeated in their last three home matches in the league having registered two successive wins and one draw at the Stadio Carlo Castellani.
Meanwhile, Roma snapped their three-match winless run in Serie A when they emerged as 1-0 winners over Genoa CFC at home on 19 May.
However, the Wolves are winless in their last two away matches in this competition having registered one defeat and one draw as the visitors.
Team News
Empoli players have no suspension concerns, but Tyronne Ebuehi and Etrit Berisha are currently injured.
On the other hand, Leonardo Spinazzola is the only player on Napoli's injury list at the moment, while Leandro Paredes is suspended.
“It’s true that Genoa are a tough team to play against because you need to get your width from your full-backs, but we did create some chances," Roma manager Daniele De Rossi said after his side's win over Genoa.
"We had maybe 100 shots from the edge of the box without finding the target. It was a hard and tense contest against a side that rightly played the game as if their lives depended on it. I like the fact that we’re changing in Italy in this regard.
"It’s an important victory that shows once again that these lads have so much heart. We went down to ten men and managed to get the goal with the touch of a champion. That’s what was able to save the game for us because we couldn’t play differently with a man down.”
Roma hammered Empoli 7-0 in their last meeting in Serie A which was on 17 September 2023 at the Stadio Olimpico.
As a result, the Wolves are undefeated in their last 15 matches in the league against the Blues having registered three draws and 12 wins.
