On Saturday February 17 at 15:00, AS Roma will take the field at Empoli for the last match of round 24 of the Serie A.

Against the 4th-placed team, the Romans will once again be without the services of their preferred central defensive pairing of Mexes-Chivu, both injured. Panucci will deputise in the unfamiliar role of stopper.
This match will have a unique flavour for Francesco Totti, who was seriously injured last season on the very same pitch.
As the Stadio Castellani doesn’t fully comply with safety and security statutes, the match will be played behind closed doors.
When the two teams met in the first half of the season, the Romans won out 1-0 thanks to a Montella strike.

Luciano Spalletti has called up a 19-man squad for the trip to Empoli:
Bertagnoli, Cassetti, Curci, De Rossi, Defendi, Faty, Ferrari, Mancini, Marangon, Panucci, Perrotta, Pizarro, Rosi, Taddei, Tavano, Tonetto, Totti, Vucinic, Wilhelmsson. On Saturday February 17 at 15:00, AS Roma will take the field at Empoli for the last match of round 24 of the Serie A.
