Salernitana continued their positive streak with a point taken away to Benevento last weekend. The even had the lead thanks to a goal from Djuric in the 53rd minute but weren’t able to keep up with the opponent till the end.
They have conceded a goal sixteen minutes later, in an overall not that interesting match with very little real offensive phases. Overall, it was a decently fair outcome for the teams, as neither of them really looked fired up to attack – still, it should be said that the hosts were a bit more agile side.
It makes this result a positive one without any doubt for Salernitana against the first and most serious candidate for the Serie B title. After two victories in a row, Salernitana is undefeated in the last three and surely aims to continue in a positive way here.
Central defender Mantovani remains a long-term absentee for the hosts, not playing so far in the season anyway.
Trapani got completely outplayed in a 0:3 loss at home against Cittadella last Saturday afternoon. They conceded the first goal in the 25th minute via Proia, maybe even against the flow of the game but they looked way better in the second halftime.
For all that time, the hosts didn’t manage to make many concrete things on the field, while Trapani looked far more concrete and decisive in the transition. Diaw scored in the 54th minute, with the guests remaining more dangerous and sealing the victory thanks to a goal from Pavan in the 87th minute.
After this defeat, they remain second from the bottom having five points more than rock-bottom placed Livorno and continue to be four points behind play-out placed Cremonese. Away from home, they have earned just nine points out of eleven matches making this game as difficult and challenging as possible.
The guests continue to miss left-back Martina (no performance so far), also midfielders Moscati (19/2) and Jakimovski (9/0) due to injuries.
After victories over Pescara and Cosenza, Salernitana took an important point away to Benevento and remains quite a strong favorite in this one. The hosts are looking more creative in the attack and more responsible at the back than Trapani.
With the help of their own fans, they should record a victory here easier than what the odds suggest.
