Claudio Ranieri begins his second reign as Roma boss this evening and will expect a win against struggling Empoli.
Roma to win and both to score @ 8/5
The Giallorossi have both lost the Derby della Capitale to Lazio and gone out of the Champions League in their last two games and the board felt they had to act.
Out went Eusebio Di Francesco and in came Ranieri, only weeks after his sacking by Fulham.
Hosting a team who have not won away all season appears a convenient way to start and Gli Azzurri find themselves sat just a point above the bottom three.
Improving his team’s defence will be one of the 67-year-old’s priorities after failing to keep a clean sheet in five but expect a successful start for the ‘Tinkerman’.
Celtics -3.5 @ 13/10
Over in the NBA, Boston Celtics will look to continue their winning resurgence as they head to LA Clippers.
The Celtics have come through a difficult spell to win four out of five and will be hoping to make it a quartet of straight victories after downing the Lakers 120-107 last time out.
Kyrie Irving seems to be back after his 30-point haul on Saturday and will be vital against a Clippers team who have won seven of their last nine to edge into the play-off spots.
LA won 123-112 when these two met at TD Garden in February but that result contributes to a strong run of 4-1 for the road team in this fixture and the Celtics can get revenge.
