Preview: Only three points will suffice from Sunday’s daunting visit to Turin for Salernitana. Serie A’s bottom side can, however, take inspiration from fellow promoted side Empoli’s shock triumph here earlier in the season when they aim to compound Juventus‘ woes at a potentially volatile Juventus Stadium.

Juventus – Disgruntled supporters demand winning response?

Similar to Barcelona, for much of this season it seemed Juventus were set to be among the major omissions from next season’s Champions League after a dreadful start to 2021/22. Unlike Barcelona, however, the Turin hierarchy held firm in their belief head coach Massi Allegri was the right man to turn things around. A 15-game unbeaten league run which has seen them rise to fourth suggests they were right to do so.

With Lazio seven points back in fifth, Juventus are suddenly looking up again. And although Wednesday’s humbling at Juventus Stadium to Villarreal, slumping to a 3-0 defeat to the La Liga outfit, was a shock to the system, they’ve been gifted a perfect fixture in which to bounce back. Although, it is worth noting their struggles when hosting promoted sides this term: beating Spezia 1-0 but losing 1-0 to Empoli.

Key Stat: Juventus have scored more than two goals in a home league game once all season (in 14 such matches), doing precisely this in none of the past 11 Serie A contests held at Juventus Stadium.


Juventus Win To Nil



Salernitana – Long afternoon in store for Serie A stragglers?

While they do retain as many as two games in hand over the teams above them, Serie A survival is looking more and more futile with every passing week Salernitana aren’t winning. Last week’s 2-2 draw at home to Sassuolo – a creditable result in isolation against a top-half side – left them nine points adrift of safety at the foot of the table. They’re winless in eight since opening 2022 with victory at Hellas Verona.

However, five draws out of six (L1) suggests a team which has by no means giving up the fight just yet. Admittedly four of these were earned back at their Stadio Arechi. Their inadequacies were once again laid bare, though, in the 5-0 shellacking at the hands of Inter last time out on the road. Having also lost 4-1 at Napoli, 3-0 at Fiorentina, 3-0 at Lazio and 2-0 in Milan to AC, there is an ominous feel to this fixture.

Key Stat: Four of Salernitana’s previous five away defeats in Serie A were to nil, failing to score in trips to AC Milan, Fiorentina, Lazio and Inter Milan.

Juventus Vs Salernitana Betting Advice

Having exited the Champions League at the round of 16 stage for a third season running in midweek, a strong response is not merely expected but demanded of Juventus this weekend. Anything less than a rapid start to proceedings could spark hostility inside Juventus Stadium. Promoted sides have fared well at this ground in 2021/22, though. Spezia went down narrowly while Empoli produced a shock 1-0 win.


Juventus Vs Salernitana – Key Facts:

  • Still smarting from Wednesday’s 3-0 home defeat to Villarreal that saw them exit the Champions League. Juventus host the leakiest team in Serie A on the back of a 15-game unbeaten league run (W10 D5).
  • Salernitana have shown plenty of grit in recent encounters, though, earning scoring draws in five of the last six Serie A outings.
  • Away from home, though, Salernitana have tended to fall way short of what is required. Suffering heavy losses away to AC Milan (2-0), Fiorentina (4-0), Lazio (3-0), Napoli (4-1) and Inter Milan (5-0).


Sunday’s visit of rock-bottom Salernitana provides Allegri’s humbled charges with an ideal opportunity in which to atone. Despite some spirited performances of late, Salernitana are cut adrift at the bottom for a reason. Moreover, their record away to the better teams is abysmal. There have been Over 2.5 Goals in nine of the past eleven Salernitana matches, and I think a wounded Juve can cut loose in Turin.
