Verona – Salernitana Prediction and Preview

  • The Serie A (SA) action in round 22 is closed out by two Monday evening games with the first up a true relegation six-pointer, as Hellas Verona welcome Salernitana. The Mastiffs’ survival bid has gathered momentum in recent weeks, with a 2-0 victory over Lecce followed up by draws against Udinese and Lazio, but they remain four points adrift of safety ahead of this round, a gap which could grow by the time they kick-off here.
  • That could ignite fear within the fanbase, as Verona’s 14 points at this stage of a season is their lowest since 2017/18 (13), a campaign in which they eventually went on to be relegated from the top-flight. Continuing their positive momentum seems essential then, and home comforts could help them achieve just that, as they’re unbeaten at Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi in their last three SA outings (W2, D1) while their generally dominant home H2H record in all competitions (W7, D2, L2) is also a boost.
  • Further encouragement can be found in visiting Salernitana’s recent form, with their last nine league games yielding just one win (D2, L6). In that time, manager Davide Nicola has been fired, rehired, and tasked with keeping them in the division, though a seven-point gap to danger provides a source for comfort ahead of the weekend.
  • The Granata’s latest setback was a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Juventus, but Nicola was keen to move on and stress the need to focus on this ‘very important’ clash. If he is to repeat the survival act of last season, an improvement on the road may well be required, as Salernitana’s last eight SA away games saw them concede 24 goals at an average of three per game (W2, D1, L5)!
  • Players to watch: Verona appear reliant on Darko Lazović, who has directly contributed to six goals in as many league games (G3, A3). It appears Salernitana have placed the same faith in Boulaye Dia, who’s played a hand in each of his side’s last four league goals (G2, A2).
  • Hot stat: Verona are one of just two SA sides who have failed to score between the 75th minute and full-time in any league game this term.
