Juventus will take on Salernitana. The match will take place at Allianz Stadium in Turin on Sunday, September 11.
Juve have a very important season ahead. While the failure to win 2020/2021 could be attributed to Andrea Pirlo’s inexperience as a coach and the subsequent draw misfires can also be explained. If it is not possible to add in the current season, it indicates that the “Old Signora”, the “Old Signora”, is not at the top of its game. Based on the performance of Turin’s club in August-September, there has been no cause for optimism. The Bianconeri lost in Serie A against Spezia and Sassuolo, and also drew with Fiorentina and Roma (1-1 each) and the unimpressive Sampdoria (0-1). It is not surprising that the Italians began the Champions League with a loss. They went to PSG and Mbappe had scored two goals by half-time. Mackeny’s goal at the end of the first half was all I could think of. Allegri enjoyed the fight and he believes his wards could achieve even more.
Slernitana can be considered lucky. The story of how the rookie managed to survive in Serie A last year, despite having many unsportsmanlike issues and scoring very few points, will be remembered for a long while. Davide Nicola is already doing a similar trick – we all remember when he did it again and kept Crotone from falling into the 2nd division. The “fireman” coach didn’t succeed in the full-fledged season of systematic work, so it was interesting to see how it would end. The “seahorses”, so far, have been a pleasant surprise. They lost in the first round to Roma 0-1. They have already won (and it was a huge victory, 4-0 – Sampdoria was destroyed by them), and the fights were drawn three times more by the nominal outsider. A different scenario was presented: Empoli won 2-2 against Bologna, and Bologna was beaten 1-1 by Udinese.
Last year, the newcomer couldn’t oppose Juventus. With a score of 2-0, the Grand won both head-toheads against Salernitana. The Turin giant is confident of a win, and it will be easy for bookmakers. The Seahorses are not in danger, so it’s worth betting on their win over the Old Signora on Saturday night at +1.5 goals.
Prediction: Salernitana will win with a +1.5 handicap
