However, She-Wolf are undefeated in their last three matches at home in Serie A having registered one draw and two victories in Rome.
“We are undoubtedly the team that has made Napoli sweat the most, the team that has scared them the most – in a stadium where the atmosphere is usually incredible," Roma manager Jose Mourinho said after their match against Napoli.
"But today it seemed like it was empty. Other than the result, which is obviously negative, I leave here today more confident than before. 
"And beyond that, seeing that three of our substitutes were three babies who were playing on the astroturf pitch at Trigoria [for the Primavera] last season and yet today came here and played the way they did – it makes me extremely happy and proud."

Meanwhile, Empoli were held to a 2-2 draw by Torino FC at home in their previous league match which was played on January 28.
The Blues are enjoying a six-match unbeaten run in this competition having registered three draws and three victories.
Empoli are also undefeated in their last three games on the road in the league having recorded two successive draws and one win as the visitors. 
The last meeting between Roma and Empoli in a league game was on 12 September 2022.
Roma claimed a 2-1 win over Empoli in a match that was played at the Stadio comunale Carlo Castellani which is dedicated to Carlo Castellani, a former football player.
