FW Predictions for Salernitana vs Cremonese
Cremonese continue to find their return to Serie A tough having failed to win any of their opening 12 fixtures. However, despite that poor start to the campaign Cremonese could move out of the relegation zone with a win this weekend but Salernitana have proven to be a tough nut to crack this season and the bookmakers fancy a home win.
Salernitana to Win
Salernitana have won three of their last five head-to-heads with Cremonese and go into Saturday's match sitting 11pts and 10 places clear of their guests. The hosts have picked up three wins from their last four league games and are in the midst of an excellent run of form right now, while Cremonese have lost two of their last four in Serie A and as we mentioned above, are yet to win a league game this season.
Boulaye Dia to Score
Boulaye Dia made the move to Salernitana from Villarreal this summer and so far the transfer has been a great success. Dia top scores for the Italian side with 5-goals in eight starts in Serie A and we're backing the 25-year-old to score against Cremonese this weekend and help lead his side to victory.
Salernitana vs Cremonese: Stats, Markets & Odds
Cremonese still searching for their first league win
Salernitana put in one of their best performances since returning to the top flight last weekend when they made the trip to Lazio. Despite going a goal down just before half-time, Salernitana put in a fantastic second-half display to win the game 3-1. Candreva equalised for the visitors in the 51st-minute and Fazio scored in the 68th-minute to make it 2-1. Lazio always looked dangerous going forward but as soon as Dia made it 3-1 with 14-minutes left on the clock, the game was over.
Salernitana predicted lineup: Sepe, Fazio, Gyömbér, Mazzocchi, Daniliuc, Bradarić, Candreva, Radovanović, Coulibaly, Bonazzoli & Piątek
Cremonese missed out on another chance to secure their first win of the campaign last weekend when they played host to Udinese. The visitors started the season really well but their form has dropped off of late and that was evident at the Stadio Giovanni Zini. However, Cremonese were unable to take advantage of their guest's underperformance and the game ended in a 0-0 draw. These are the types of games that Cremonese have to win if they want to avoid being sent back down to Serie B at the first attempt.
Cremonese predicted lineup: Carnesecchi, Bianchetti, Lochoshvili, Sernicola, Valeri, Aiwu, Meïté, Pickel, Ascacíbar, Buonaiuto & Okereke
Salernitana: Giulio Maggiore and Franck Ribéry look set to miss out once again this weekend for the hosts.
Cremonese: Cyriel Dessers, Ionut Radu and Vlad Chiriches could all miss the trip to Salernitana due to injury.
