Salernitana Double Chance

Salernitana had put together a decent run in the lead-up to the international break, stringing together a four-match unbeaten surge, while just one of their last four games on the road in Serie A ended in defeat. Spezia meanwhile, have dropped points in nine of their last ten assignments at the Stadio Alberto Picco and that poor record is difficult to dismiss. The visitors seem to have the edge in terms of momentum and our first Spezia vs Salernitana prediction advises a stake on the away side in the double chance market with that in mind.

Both Teams to Score

Spezia and Salernitana have become familiar foes in recent years, meeting in both the first and second tiers in Italy over the course of the last few seasons. In those encounters, a pattern emerged in the BTTS market and five of the last six tussles between the sides featured goals at both ends. When you consider that the teams have kept just nine clean sheets between them in 54 Serie A fixtures combined since August, it makes sense to expect both defences to concede again on Sunday.

Spezia vs Salernitana Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Spezia vs Salernitana lineups and team news for Sunday’s meeting below.

Spezia

Spezia will be without the injured Simone Bastoni and suspended star attacker M'Bala Nzola this weekend, while Emil Holm and Joao Moutinho are both considered doubtful. Spezia shocked Inter Milan in their last home match before promptly losing 1-0 at Sassuolo.

Predicted Lineup for Spezia: Dragowski – Amian, Ampadu, Caldara, Nikolaou – Ekdal, Bourabia, Gyasi, Agudelo, Maldini- Shomurodov

Salernitana

Domen Črnigoj is listed as Salernitana's only injury issue at present and the midfielder could miss Sunday's game with a calf issue. Salernitana have drawn three games on the spin, though they did fight back to win a a point at AC Milan in their last Serie A away test.

Predicted Lineup for Salernitana: Ochoa – Daniliuc, Gyomber, Pirola – Mazzocchi, Bohinen, Coulibaly, Bradaric – Kastanos, Candreva, Dia

Player to Watch – Boulaye Dia

Senegalese striker Boulaye Dia has been a shining light for Salernitana this season and the 26-year-old has scored ten of his team’s 31 goals in Serie A this term himself. Dia notched twice in as many games for his country during the international break, so he should be in confident mood on Sunday.
