Salernitana vs Juventus: Match Preview

Half of the matches of the current Serie A have passed. We can see who is a real contender for the championship, and which teams this season can't get their act together and score points by some fluke rather than by confident play. 

Two teams that float at the bottom third of the table will meet today in the closing math of the tour. But here we find a certain contrast, with one team basically cruising on the tracks that are predictable for themselves. The other team, however, is truly a victim of circumstance.

Salernitana is simply modest and not experienced enough to successfully participate in the top division. While Juventus was hit by a serious scandal and lost points, positive atmosphere because of it. 

Curiously enough, in the first round, the rivals had an extremely dramatic encounter. Juventus were 0-2 down, but they managed to come back in the game and even scored a third goal in stoppage time. However, the referee cancelled the goal, triggering a mass scuffle and several suspensions. After the match, it was widely discussed that the refereeing team made a mistake in determining offside in the scandalous moment.

Team News:


Salernitana will remain without defenders Federico Fazio and Norbert Gyomber due to muscle injuries, with both players unlikely to return until later in February.

Giulio Maggiore and Pasquale Mazzocchi are both doubts due to muscle and knee issues respectively, with neither likely to be risked from the start against Juventus.
