Salernitana vs Fiorentina Match Analysis & Prediction
03/05/2023 7:00 pm
After holding leaders Napoli to a draw at the weekend, Salernitana will be looking to pick up another positive result when they host Fiorentina in the Serie A on Wednesday.
That result in Naples extended Salernitana’s unbeaten run to nine matches – seven of which have been drawn – meaning they should avoid the frantic finish they had to last season.
Manager Paulo Sousa will not expect any complacency from his players with six matches remaining, but sides below them such as Empoli and Spezia are really faltering while Salernitana continue to pick up points on a weekly basis.
Fiorentina will come into this contest possibly with their minds elsewhere, knowing that they have nothing left to play for on the league front.
Vincenzo Italiano’s side are one of six teams marooned in mid-table with no hope of finishing in the European spots while not having any worries of relegation either.
Despite a 5-0 beating of bottom-placed Sampdoria on Sunday, Fiorentina are now fully expected to focus on the two cup competitions they remain in.
La Viola completed the job in midweek be beating Cremonese to reach the Coppa Italia final against Inter Milan, while they face Basel in the Europa Conference League semi-finals as well.
Both competitions offer Fiorentina the chance to qualify for the Europa League next season, as the 10-point deficit to Atalanta means there is narrow chance of doing so through the league route.
Salernitana vs. Fiorentina Head to head
