Salernitana – Torino Prediction and PREVIEW

  • After a seven-week break for the World Cup and the festive season, Serie A (SA) football re-commenced on Wednesday, but it wasn’t a happy return for mid-table Salernitana who went down 1-2 at home to champions AC Milan. That was their fourth straight league game in which they’d conceded at least once inside the opening 30 minutes, which should concern manager Davide Nicola.
  • He will on the whole be satisfied with the campaign so far, with no immediate signs of the feared ‘second season’ syndrome plaguing his team. In fact, they are actually nine points better off than they were at this stage of last campaign. No win in four league outings (D1, L3) does hint that the tide is potentially changing for Salernitana, which is something they’ll want to correct immediately.
  • Torino may have avoided defeat on their return, but their 1-1 home draw with bottom-of-the-table Hellas Verona left fans understandably dissatisfied. Sitting just inside the top half of the standings ahead of the round, this is still the Bulls’ best points return since 2018/19 (also 22), a season they went on to finish inside the top seven. Their European aspirations remain well and truly alive as a result.
  • The visitors enjoyed wins to nil in both H2H clashes last season (H: 4-0, A: 1-0), but shutouts on the road this season have so far eluded them with none secured from their eight away matches (W3, D1, L4). There has also been an added quirk to matches away to teams outside the top seven ahead of the round, with all four of Torino’s away matches to such teams producing three goals in 2-1 results (W3, L1).
  • Key battle: Krzysztof Piątek, who scored in his last SA meeting with Torino back in September 2019, has opened the scoring for Salernitana in two of their last four home league matches. Tough-tackling midfielder Karol Linetty will be one of the players trying to stop him, and coming into the gameweek only five SA players had committed more fouls than Linetty (24).
  • Hot stat: Ahead of this round, only two teams have averaged more offsides per game than Torino (2.25).
