Tip Reasoning

  • Although the hosts are winless in nine league games, Torino are on their own run of eight without victory.
  • Six of Il Toro’s last eight contests have contained under 2.5 goals.
  • Salernitana’s record of 22 goals scored in 29 league games is comfortably the worst such return in Serie A.
  • Only the top four have conceded fewer than the 30 league goals shipped by Torino this term.

Don’t expect goals from prime-time contest

On a weekend which features huge games at all levels of the Serie A table, Saturday night’s prime-time clash between Salernitana and Torino, it’s fair to say, doesn’t exactly whet the appetite for lovers of free-flowing football. The relegation-bound hosts have scored just 22 league goals all season, and entertainment is not anticipated when they host the best defensive outfit outside the top four.

Indeed, only the Milan sides, Juventus, and Napoli can better Torino’s record of just 30 Serie A goals conceded this season. Ivan Juric’s men mauled Salernitana 4-0 in September’s reverse fixture, but have found goals hard to come by in recent weeks. Indeed, six of their last eight games have contained fewer than three goals, the exceptions being dire losses to lowly Venezia and Cagliari. Juric’s out-of- form team are now winless in eight league games.

Their hosts are on a similar run, going nine games without tasting victory in Serie A as they head for an immediate demotion back to Serie B. Drawing five of their last seven matches has at least allowed Salernitana to salvage some pride, with their only reverses in that run coming against top-tier opponents in Juventus and Inter.

Under three goals appears a banker

Considering Salernitana have averaged well below a goal per game in this Serie A season, we shouldn’t expect too many chances when they meet the best defence outside Serie A’s Champions League positions.

With both sides on long winless runs, punters are advised to stay away from the win markets and back under 2.5 goals to be scored in a tight, cagey affair. Meanwhile, a 1-1 draw could represent a good correct score prediction, given the hosts’ love of a stalemate.
