Roma got back to winning ways this evening, snapping their two match losing streak.

The Giallorossi defeated Empoli 2-1 this evening in Tuscany thanks to a stellar performance from marquee summer signing Paulo Dybala.

La Joya led the way for José Mourinho’s side with a stunning first half goal before delivering an assist to Tammy Abraham late in the second half.

It was a much-needed win for the capital following two poor displays the past week domestically and in Europe.

Roma got off to a quick start and had multiple chances to score just within the first few minutes through Dybala.

After missing a sitter just before the tenth minute, the former Juve man scored a world class goal with a beautiful curling finish from outside the area to take the lead.

Despite the early lead, the capital club’s energy fell off and they were justly punished before halftime.

It appeared the club were headed for a third winless result before Tammy Abraham found the back of the net from a pinpoint Paulo Dybala delivery.
