Tip Reasoning

  • Salernitana are unbeaten in four Serie A games, winning three.
  • The hosts have only lost on one of their last six outings on home turf.
  • Venezia have lost each of their last nine Serie A matches.

Salernitana looking to escape drop zone

Having looked dead and buried for most of the Serie A season, Salernitana could escape the relegation zone when they host Venezia in their game in hand on Thursday. With games against Cagliari, Empoli, and Udinese left to play, an incredible escape can’t be ruled out for Davide Nicola’s team, while Venezia would be all but condemned to relegation with a defeat.

Nicola’s outfit have won three of their last four games, drawing the other, claiming as many victories in that sequence as they did in their first 30 league games this season. The hosts, who had Serie A’s worst goalscoring record for much of the campaign, have scored in each of their last five games, only failing to score in three of their last 14 outings, and boast a solid home record after losing just one of their last six in Salerno.

Venezia joined Salernitana in making a late coaching change recently, and caretaker boss Andrea Soncin’s first game at the helm ended in a narrow 2-1 loss at Juventus. However, the club from the floating city have now fallen to nine consecutive losses and sit six points away from safety. Meanwhile, Venezia lost 2-1 at home to a vastly inferior Salernitana outfit earlier this season, so their fans may not hold out much hope of a crucial result.

Hosts can boost survival hopes, and all but relegate Venezia

Considering Venezia’s predicament, Soncin’s men must go for the throat on Thursday night, but they have scored just 28 goals in 34 league games, and 11 in 17 on the road. Momentum is certainly with Salernitana, and they look worth backing for a crucial win which would virtually seal Venezia’s fate.

Salernitana have seen both teams score in four of their last five matches, so a repeat of their earlier 2-1 victory over their fellow struggler looks a decent correct score prediction.
