The second round of Serie A will open Empoli and Roma, two teams in this season included with totally different goals. While the team Empoli fight to survive in the league on the other side of Roma is one of the favorites for the title and they will try something more to do in the Champions League.
Empoli at the opening of the season lost to Udinese 2: 0. In that game they played poorly and they sent barely two shots at goal of Udinese. Now they host the others first, but for me the second favorite for the team title refers Rome. Empoli will miss experienced attacker Macaroni, and is expected to take Meclidze his spot in the attack. Empoli is on the team that is the favorite for relegation, they have a lot of weak teams in the league and things would be a success to survive this season.

Rome has a great team and I think they will this season be the primary goal will be Italy league and then the Champions League. In the first game they celebrated against strong Fiorentina with 2:0. In this game they played great, and that Gervinho was a little more serious it would be a lot more of these 2: 0. Rudi Garcia is still hesitating whether to games Castan who just came after injury or Astori who played great for the Italian national team during the week.
Although Roma expects a tough match in the Champions League against CSKA Moscow, I believe that this game has to take the points. Rudi Garcia will be the way things are done best team to provide as soon as possible victory over the feeble rival.
