Salernitana vs Roma: prediction for the Serie A match
Salernitana barely survived the previous season in Serie A, but they have strengthened the team in the summer and looked decent in the pre-season friendlies. In their first official game of the 2022-2023 season, the Garnets lost to Parma (0:2) in the first round of Coppa Italia. They will hope to have a better start in Serie A against Roma.
The Wolves finished in 6th place in the Serie A table last season, which isn't what they hoped for. However, Roma did win a trophy - the team prevailed over Feyenoord in the final of the Conference League, becoming the first ever champion of the tournament. In their last pre-season friendly, Roma crushed Shakhtar Donetsk (5:0). In the offseason, Paulo Dybala moved to Roma from Juventus.
Salernitana didn't score more than 1 goal in 3 of the last 5 games.
In 3 of the last 4 head-to-head games, both sides scored goals.
In the last 3 head-to-head games, more goals were scored in the second half than in the first.
Last season, Roma beat Salernitana in both games - the Garnets lost 1:2 away and were crushed 0:4 at home. We doubt that tonight's result will be different - Nicola's men didn't look very convincing in the game against Parma last week. The visitors should win confidently.
Our prediction — handicap (-1) to Roma
Usually, games between Roma and Salernitana are high-scoring and exciting to watch. In the last 4 head-to-head games, at least three goals were scored. We will take the over here.
Second prediction — total over 2.5 goals
