Last season, Salernitana barely kept its status in the Italian football elite. In the finish, they drastically improved their form and stayed in Serie A by one point.
Coach Davide Nicola is responsible for the good results. He arrived at the club in February and thus became the third coach of Salernitana that season. The team played better under his leadership, rose from the bottom, and enters the new season with the intention that their game will be the same as before, but from the beginning of the campaign.
The players of Salernitana played well in the preseason. They did not lose any of the five friendly matches, even though they played against well-known European clubs such as Galatasaray, Hoffenheim, and Schalke. However, they were defeated by Parma in the Italian Cup, which was their first official game in the new season.
Roma Team News
On the other hand, Roma’s appetites are big at the beginning of the new season. After good results in Europe and winning the trophy in the UEFA League Conference, they want to fight for the title in the domestic championship as well.
The competition is strong, but the team from the “eternal city” did an excellent job in the transfer market during the summer. Paulo Dybala, Georgino Wijnaldum, Nemanja Matić, and Zeki Celik have arrived at the club, and since they are experienced players, they are immediately ready for the most difficult challenges.
There is no doubt that Jose Mourinho’s side will be serious contenders for the title. If they want to impose themselves in this light from the start, they must win matches against weaker rivals.
Roma beat Salernitana both times last season. The results were 2-1 and 4-0.
Salernitana (3-5-2): Sepe; Gyomber, Radovanović, Ranieri; Mazzocchi, Coulibaly, Ederson, Bohinen, Ruggeri; Mikael, Đurić
Roma (3-4-2-1): Patricio; Ibanez, Smalling, Mancini; Spinazzola, Wijnaldum, Pellegrini, Çelik; Dybala, Zaniolo; Abraham
We expect a dominant game and a routine victory from the guests. We believe that Roma players will immediately want to send a message to all rivals that they are serious contenders for the throne of Italy this season.
