Empoli vs Salernitana
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 14 May 2022
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Carlo Castellani.

At one point it was thought that Salernitana would be easily relegated to the lower division. But they have managed to climb over the cutoff as of now.

Currently they are hanging by a thread over the limit and with just two fixtures remaining, fans are on their knees praying that the team would keep this slender cushion of points.

The results they have posted on the board in the last few weeks will definitely give them confidence as well as momentum.

In the meantime, Empoli have already confirmed their safety for one more season, and after a tiring campaign, they will not have the energy left to give their best on the pitch for what they think is a meaningless six points.

They already are going through a poor stretch of performances, and are conceding goals in huge numbers.

Judging recent performances of either team, as well as the determination of Salernitana to extend their stay in the top flight, count on a win for them this weekend.

Note that they were also winless in 19 of their past 20 overall games, and they had let in two or more goals in their last four fixtures in a row.
