Juventus – Salernitana Preview
Juventus hosts Salernitana at the Allianz Stadium in a match from the Coppa Italia 1/8-finals. Let’s see what we can tell you about it in our accurate football predictions. Here we go!
Juventus are fighting for the title in the Serie A so the Coppa is clearly not a priority for them. Most likely the head coach Massimiliano Allegri will put most of his reserve players on the pitch against Salernitana. We are talking about players like Perin, Gatti, Iling-Junior, Nicolussi and Rugani. Even with their “B” team though, Juventus remain favorites to progress in the competition.
Max Allegri is a manager who already won the Coppa Italia four times with Juventus. For the last time it happened in 2018 – during his first spell at the club. Now the head coach is aware the fans are hungry for new trophies.
The American international Timothy Weah is a player who could use this chance to show his capabilities. The 23-years old winger is still looking for his first goal since joining the Old Lady. This match is a great opportunity for him to open his account at the club.
Salernitana are underdogs in this match even if Juventus put their reserves on the pitch. In the Serie A Salernitana are at the bottom of the standings with just 9 points won. It means that they need to focus on their efforts to survive and leave Coppa Italia aside.
In the previous round of the Coppa Salernitana played a massive game and crushed Sampdoria at home – 4-0. This showed their potential, but it’s true that they have many problems at the moment.
That’s the accurate football predictions for the Coppa Italia match between Juventus and Salernitana. The Bianconeri will try to rotate the line-up here but even so they are favorites to progress in the competition. Let’s see.
