During the World Cup, Verona strengthened the coaching position by inviting Marco Zaffaroni to help Salvatore Bocchetti. And during the winter period of substitutions, the team still in the relegation zone also strengthened the squad. Among the new arrivals, we should mention experienced Slovakian midfielder Ondrej Duda, Danish former Rubin Kazan player Oliver Abildgaard, talented Belgian player from Groningen Cyril Ngonga, and, of course, Argentinian forward Adolfo Geitsch, known for his performances for CSKA Moscow.
Such a powerful pumping of the team was effective immediately. In 2023 Verona only lost to Inter (only 0:1 away), managed to get some important victories (2:0 each) over Cremonese and Lecce, and took away the points (all 1:1 each) from such serious opponents as Torino, Udinese, and even Lazio. It was a great stretch that allowed Verona to get only four points closer to 17th place.
The Pomegranates lost to a major club on the previous matchday. They failed to beat Juventus. This is the fourth defeat for Salerno this year, and if it were not for the victory over Lecce on Matchday 20 (2:1), the start of the second half of the championship for Salerno could have been a failure. Even without that admission, it is evident that the situation is heating up - at the moment, Salernina is already only seven points away from the relegation zone.
Expert Betting Tips
Verona doesn't look like an outsider in the second part of the championship. Even Inter found it difficult against the Yellow-Blue, and Lazio lost points against Verona in the previous round. However, Marco Zaffaroni's side was closer to winning the game against Maurizio Sarri's side. In the match with Salernitana, the opponents are also certain to pick up points. On the other hand, the Pomegranates are completely confused after the New Year. Although they recently earned an important victory over Lecce, they were not without luck in this match, and if they score at least a draw in Verona, it will be a great achievement for them. We're betting on the Bianconeri here and expect a productive match.
