Key Stats

  • Salernitana failed to win any of their last 15 fixtures in Serie A.
  • Fiorentina eased to a 3-0 win over Salernitana when the teams last met in December.
  • Under 2.5 goals hit the net in each of Fiorentina’s last four away games in Serie A.
  • Salernitana have conceded the first goal in each of their last five home assignments.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Bookies favour visitors

  • HOME: 19/5 (4.80) – 20.8%
  • DRAW: 14/5 (3.80) – 26.3%
  • AWAY: 7/10 (1.70) – 58.8%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Salernitana were beaten 4-1 at Lazio last weekend and that heavy defeat pushed them closer to what has long been an inevitable relegation for the minnows. Salernitana have lost seven and drawn two of their last nine home games, which is why the bookies have given them just a 20.8% chance of beating Fiorentina on Sunday.

Our latest betting tips have backed La Viola to win this weekend, though they will need to combat fatigue after their Conference League clash with Viktoria Plzen went to extra time on Thursday evening.

Fiorentina eased to a 3-0 win over Salernitana in Florence back in December and the home team has come out on top in six of the last seven tussles between the teams overall. La Viola look well-positioned to buck that trend on Sunday.

Player to watch – Nicolás González

Argentinean winger Nicolás González showcased his talents again in midweek when he scored a crucial goal for Fiorentina in the Conference League against Viktoria Plzen. The 26-year-old is in the midst of a dry spell in Serie A however, and will be itching to set things straight domestically.

Gonzalez should be confident

Gonzáles hasn’t found the net in Serie A since February, though his goal on Thursday evening should provide a significant confidence lift and the wide attacker could be a  threatening presence on Sunday as a result.
