Salernitana vs Juventus: prediction for the Serie A fixture
Salernitana kicked the season off with four consecutive defeats and dropped to the bottom of the table. Fabrizio Castori, who brought the team to Serie A, was replaced by Stefano Colantuono as head coach, but to the date this hasn't changed anything.
Before the start of matchday 15, Salernitana sit bottom of the log with eight points in the asset. However, there is yet hope for the Garnets: they are only three points behind the 17th Spezia. In the last round, Salernitana drew 1:1 with Cagliari, thanks to the last-minute goal by Federico Bonazzoli.
Juventus are having a terrible season. Before the start of this edition of Serie A, Juve were considered one of the contenders for the Scudetto, but currently they are only 7th. Their chances of challenging the leaders are vanishing with every round - the 1st Napoli are already 14 points ahead.
Massimiliano Allegri's charges are trying to secure a ticket to the Champions League, but the competition is very tight, and Inter Milan and Atalanta are unlikely to give away their spots in the Top-4. Roma and Fiorentina also have European ambition. In the last game, Juventus lost to Atalanta (0:1) at home - this was their third defeat in the last five Serie A fixtures.
Salernitana lost 2 out of 9 games with this score.
In 2 of the last 3 home games, Salernitana conceded in both halves.
Salernitana scored only once in the last 4 games.
A couple of days ago, Juventus suffered another fiasco, losing to one of their direct contenders for a ticket to the Champions League. Today the Old Lady will try to catch up with the Top-6. The visitors have a big class advantage and should win this game.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1,5) to Juventus
Prediction: Handicap (-1,5) to Juventus

Salernitana are struggling to stay competitive in the Italian elite. Moreover, the team is plagued by injuries of key players, so it will be hard for them to go against extremely motivated Juventus. We don't think that the Old Lady will crush the hosts, because they will be saving energy for the upcoming Champions League game, but a victory by a two-goal margin seems likely.
Second bet - Juventus to win by 2 goals
