Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Empoli will be looking to cement top position in the standings when they face Salernitana in the Serie B derby. Empoli kicked off 2021 with a 2-0 win over Cosenza, meaning that they are high on spirits ahead of the visit of Salernitana. Cambiaso is sidelined through injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team. Boss Alessio Dionisi is likely to stick to the 4-3-3 formation.
I Granata aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Monza (0-3) and Pordenone (0-2), but given their shaky defence, we are tempted to put our money on the league leaders. Both Capezzi and Di Tacchio are banned for the visiting team, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Alessio Dionisi’s troops, who have yet to suffer a loss at home ground in the 2020/21 Serie B campaign.
