Serie A sides are worthy of support
Rampant Roma could run riot at Empoli
Empoli v Roma 7.30pm Saturday
Eusebio Di Francesco's job was at stake a couple of weeks ago but since then Roma have won three matches by an aggregate 12-1.
Frosinone were thumped 4-0 and Viktoria Plzen beaten 5-0, but from a confidence point of view the 3-1 derby success in between over Lazio seems to have changed the whole mood of the club.
Young starlets Cengiz Under and Justin Kluivert were on target in midweek as Roma ran riot in the Champions League, while Edin Dzeko helped himself to a hat-trick.
Empoli are winless since the opening weekend and Roma should be able to kick on if they get in front.

Napoli had to work hard for their dramatic Champions League triumph over Liverpool on Wednesday and they may not be able to back that up with a wide-margin success over Sassuolo.
The Serie A surprise package were beaten 4-1 by Milan last time out, but before that had beaten Inter and lost 2-1 at Juventus in a game where they pushed the perennial champions.
Sassuolo had five shots on target to Juve's four and enjoyed 58 per cent possession in Turin.
