Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Salernitana and Empoli take on each other at Stadio Arechi in the opening match of the Serie A round 24. I Granata do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team losing four of their last five league matches, while sharing the spoils with Torino. Triantafyllos Pasalidis is a major doubt after limping off with injury in a goalless draw with Il Toro, with Junior Sambia likely to step up. Federico Fazio remains on the sidelines with injury, while fellow defender Norbert Gyomber is a major doubt.
The Azzurri, on the other hand, head into the match following a goalless draw with Genoa. Anyhow, Empoli and Salernitana seem to be evenly matched and we predict that they are going to play out a draw in the relegation six-pointer. The likes of Francesco Caputo, Tyronne Ebuehi, and Simone Bastoni miss out with injuries, speaking of the visiting team.
