Roma vs Salernitana
Italian Serie A
Date: 22 May 2023, Monday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Roma and Salernitana take on each other in the penultimate game of Matchday No 36 on Monday afternoon at Stadio Olimpico.
The Romans will be looking to finally break a five-game winless thread in the league, following a massive drop in form in May.
Jose Mourinho mixed up his cards last weekend against Bologna, clearly prioritizing the UEFA Europa League success over the battle for the top-four finish in the Italian top flight.
The mentioned winless thread keeps Roma six points behind Lazio in fourth place. Considering I Biancocelesti’s easy schedule in the final two matches of the season, it is most likely that Roma would not make it to top-four even in case of all wins in the remaining three rounds.
La Lupa are big favorites on Monday, though, as Salernitana have shown much better displays at home than on the road throughout the whole season.
The team led by Paulo Sousa made a huge step towards mathematically securing the survival in the elite class last weekend when they dispatched Atalanta 1-0 on the home patch.
Saleritana are now eight points above the danger zone which should be more than enough to keep them in the top tier knowing we only have three more games to spare.
Roma vs Salernitana Head-to-head
- Salernitana have never been a serious opposition to Roma who have won four of the last five head to head meetings between these rivals.
- La Lupa picked up a 0-1 victory in the return game against Salernitana back in mid-August last year.
- Four of five head to head outings between Roma and Salernitana ended with at least three goals scored.
Roma vs Salernitana Prediction
Salernitana are winless in seven subsequent away matches in the league and they do not have much to hope for on Monday against Roma. We will back the hosts to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the 2.25 odds as the main pick.
Alternatively, you can try with Roma to win to nil at the 2.25 odds since Mourinho’s men have kept their net untouched in seven of their last ten home outings in the league.
