Stadium: Arechi (Salerno)
Salernitana are without a point after being promoted. They finally managed to beat Verona 3-2 at home to Roma last time round. Can Bianconeri manage a second success in a row? Here are a few options to bet on the upcoming match.
Salernitana making their way through Serie A
The Salerno side have conceded ten goals in their first three fixtures, losing 2-3 to Bologna and 0-4 to Torino and Roma, but last Saturday, Fabrizio Castori’s side conceded just one goal. It did not help the scoreline as visiting Salerno beat Atalanta 1-0, but progress is evident. It seems that their first points won’t be long in coming. Salernitana are settling into the elite division.
A change of coach and a tired opponent have helped Verona
The Yellow and Blues played their 4th match under a new coach. Eusebio Di Francesco was replaced by Igor Tudor. The first leg was almost perfect. The Verona side managed to beat José Mourinho’s Roma on home soil. The Yellow and Blues responded three times. Barak, Caprari and Faraoni scored. The first points of the new championship! As was the first loss for the Roman Giallorossi.
It was an excellent win for Verona, which should not be overestimated. We shouldn’t forget that Roma have played the most games of any Italian club this season. They were bound to be fatigued at some point in the season.
History of head-to-head encounters
