Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Salernitana vs Roma


Last season, the Dark Reds finished second in Serie B, earning the right to play in Serie A 22 years later. The team was led to such success by a little-known 67-year-old specialist Fabrizio Castori, who, by the way, has been engaged in a coaching career since 1981. The management did not spend much on strengthening the roster, signing free agents and taking several players on loan.

Salernitana's season started with a cup match against Regina: 2-0. The match turned out to be equal and combative, but the "dark red" went further due to the double of the newcomer - Bonazzoli. Federico scored a goal in the Serie A round 1 match (against Bologna), although this did not help the team to get at least a point: 2-3. The fight turned out to be very entertaining and unpredictable: three send-offs, five goals in the second half, and the "seahorses" were also leading the score twice.


Last season the Wolves finished in a low 7th place, which led to a change of coach: instead of Castro, it was not just anyone who came, but Jose Mourinho himself. The management has spent almost 100 million on new players, including goalkeeper Patricio from Wolverhampton, strikers Shomurodov from Genoa and Abraham from Chelsea. Of those who left the team, we note Dzeko (Inter), Jesus (Napoli) and Pedro (Lazio). Interestingly, all three left, receiving the status of "free agent".

Roma started the new season with an away match against Trabzonspor in the framework of the Conference League, and won a very difficult victory with a score of 2-1. The decisive goal, in the 81st minute, was scored by the newcomer of the team - Shomurodov. Thanks to the recruits, the “Romans” also beat Fiorentina in the opening round of Serie A: 3-1. Assists were recorded by Abraham (2) and Shomurodov, we also note Veret's double.

Game Totals Prediction

Last season, the teams exchanged victories: in Naples, Napoli scored 6 unanswered goals (6-0), but in Genoa, the Griffins managed to take a modest revenge thanks to the double of the 38-year-old Pandev: 2-1.

The Stadio Arechi will be overcrowded, as Salerno has been waiting for the Serie A match for 22 years. The game should turn out to be not boring, although it will be dictated by Roma and with a clear advantage. The Dark Reds will give 100%, they have to score, but they will not be able to create a sensation. From bets on total it is best to take "Roma Over (1.5)" for 1.51 or "Total Over (3.0)" for 2.05. The combined variation also looks good: "Roma's victory + Total Over (2.5)" for 2.17
