Sports Innovation previews the Serie A match between Salernitana and Juventus and offers team stats and betting tips with the latest odds.

Two clubs struggling for form right now meet in Serie A as Salernitana welcome Juventus to the Arechi Stadium on Tuesday.

Judging by the latest odds, as well as their poor attacking and defensive records, Salernitana could be in for a thrashing. The Garnets are also rock bottom in the Serie A table. They have collected only eight points from 14 games in their first season back in Italy’s top flight.

Juventus, meanwhile, have performed below their usual high standards. The Bianconeri are down in a surprising seventh-place, having amassed 21 points from as many games. They’ll probably want to use this match as a springboard to get their season back on track.

Current form — Salernitana v. Juventus

The Garnets are in serious trouble

Salernitana go into this encounter hoping to turn a page, as performances in recent matches have been pretty scrappy. Only a single point prevents Stefano Colantuono’s side from getting through their last 3 games empty-handed. They came up short, losing 3-0 and 0-2 against Lazio and Sampdoria respectively. Their latest match brought some consolation with a 1-1 against Cagliari.

The Bianconeri struggling for results

It has been up and down for Juventus going into this match as league results offer little sense of progress. Massimiliano Allegri’s side have been a bit bleak in their last 3 matches, although it started with a 0-2 win against Lazio. Unable to follow that up, they went down 4-0 against Chelsea, before handing over all 3 points in a 0-1 defeat against Atalanta.

Judging by the strong performances mentioned above, Juventus seem in with a good chance of another win against Salernitana. The bookmakers currently settle the price for a home win at 10.50, while a win for the visitors gets you odds 1.35. Depending on your betting strategy, one could always consider a well-paid accumulator.

Salernitana v. Juventus — fixture history

Having never simultaneously played in the Serie A this is the first time Salernitana comes up against Juventus in this division.

Current table in the Serie A

Looking at the current Serie A standings, Salernitana and Juventus are currently 13 points and 13 places apart. The latter will no doubt attempt to grab all three points on Tuesday to move further up the league table. Despite being the outsider in this clash, Salernitana will try to make this a miserable day for their opponents. The result of this game could have a big impact on both teams in their upcoming matches. There is every reason to zoom in on the clash between Salernitana and Juventus.

Primary goal getter

Looking at the goalscorer market, it would seem a good idea to side with Federico Bonazzoli. He is one of the Salernitana players, who is showing decent form right now. He managed to find the back of the net 2 times in his most recent outing. Surely, he will want to add more goals against Juventus.

The visitors will be looking to in-form Leonardo Bonucci or Paulo Dybala to find the net once again, as they have been their main men recently.
