Team News: Salernitana
Owing to an otherwise healthy squad, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Salernitana boss Fabrizio Castori to be concerned with. Giuseppe Barone (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
We’re of the view that Salernitana will have to work hard as a team to register a score against this Vicenza side who we think will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
Therefore, we predict a good battle with a 1-0 victory for Vicenza at the end of the match.
Should be interesting.
