Salernitana will be looking for three points to boost their fight against relegation when they host Bologna at Stadio Arechi on Saturday. Under the management of Paulo Sousa, they drew with Serie A champions Milan in their last game, extending their unbeaten run and moving further away from the drop zone. Despite falling behind to an early goal, Salernitana equalized through Boulaye Dia’s effort and held on for a 1-1 draw. Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa made some crucial saves to keep the Scudetto-holders at bay.
Salernitana has earned five points from their last four games under Sousa and currently sit in 16th place in the standings, seven points above the relegation zone with 12 games remaining. They are in control of their own destiny and will be hoping to replicate their recent home form, including an impressive 3-0 win over Monza.
Bologna, on the other hand, have struggled for consistency lately. They started the year with a 1-0 win over Inter Milan, but then suffered losses to Torino and were held at home by Lazio. They have not scored in their last two games and have conceded two goals per game on their travels, making them vulnerable to Salernitana’s attacking threat.
Salernitana’s star striker Krzysztof Piatek has not scored since November, but he may be brought back into the lineup alongside Boulaye Dia. Antonio Candreva, who has made the most appearances for Salernitana this season, could also feature and has scored three times against Bologna in Serie A.
