Udinese v Selernitana Match Preview

Last Updated on 18/08/2022 by

On Saturday, when Udinese hosts Salernitana, two teams that were defeated on the first day of the new Serie A campaign try to earn their first point.

Rodrigo Becao’s early header, the Brazilian defender’s third career goal against the Rossoneri, stunned San Siro, and it looked as though new manager Andrea Sottil could start the Serie A season off right after advancing in the Coppa Italia.

While Adam Masina’s equaliser made the score 2-2 at halftime, keeping Milan at bay is much harder than eliminating little FeralpiSalo from the cup, and in the end, Udinese were defeated by the superior team.

The Fruilani are still a selling team, content to avoid relegation without seriously challenging for a spot in Europe. However, in addition to some intriguing additions during the transfer window, they were able to retain Destiny Udogie at the club for an additional year. Udogie, who will play in the Premier League starting in the summer, can now contribute to Udinese’s effort to end a three-game home Serie A losing streak in which each defeat was by a solitary goal.

This weekend presents a fantastic opportunity because Udinese have faced Salernitana four times in the top flight and have won three of those games. Their lone loss came in the most recent meeting between the two teams in April.

Salernitana are still on their best unbeaten road streak in Italy’s top division, taking into account that victory last time they visited Udine as they fought to keep their Serie A status.

After narrowly avoiding removal from the league due to ownership issues only a few months earlier, the Salerno team beaten the odds to survive relegation in May. They are now attempting to secure a third consecutive season among the elite.

The Granata will undoubtedly need to improve this season as Davide Nicola’s team had to finish with the fewest points ever to avoid relegation since the introduction of the three-point system, but despite a valiant effort, they received zero points in their season-opening match.

Salernitana lost 1-0 to Roma at Stadio Arechi, so Nicola will now look to start his team’s season at the Dacia Arena. The Campanian club, which is more accustomed to life outside of the top flight, has lost both of its opening two Serie A games in two of its previous three Serie A seasons with the only exception occurring in 1947–1948, so history is definitely not on their side this weekend.

Possible starting lineup for Udinese:
Silvestri, Becao, Nuytinck, Perez, Ebosele, Pereyra, Walace, Makengo, Destiny Udogie, Gerard Deulofeu, Success

Possible starting lineup for Salernitana:
Sepe, Gyomber, Fazio, Bronn, Anonio Candreva, Vilhena, Maggiore, Kastanos, Bradaric, Botheim, Bonazzoli
