just in: Salernitana head coach predicted new term and continue lineups In 28 of…

Sports Mole provides a preview of Saturday’s Serie A match between Salernitana and Cagliari, along with club news, predictions, and potential lineups.

In gameweek 28 action on Saturday, Ciagliar will want to build on their apparent Serie A turnaround when they host cellar-dwelling Salernitana at Sardegna Arena.

Last weekend, Claudio Ranieri’s team broke Empoli’s winning streak under Davide Nicola, while Salerno’s winless start to 2024 continued.

After a run of four consecutive losses, Ranieri’s team managed to turn things around and win five of the past nine games, including a 1-0 victory over Empoli last weekend and 1-1 draws with Udinese and Napoli.

With their sixth victory of the season against Nicola’s team, who had not lost since changing managers, the Sardinians and Hellas Verona were tied on 23 points.

If they win both of their games this weekend and other results go their way, the 18th-place Rossoblu might move up to 13th in Serie A, with Lecce in 13th position only two points ahead of Ranieri’s team.

With three games remaining in their current undefeated streak, Cagliari can go four games without a loss for the first time since February 2022, when they went five games without a loss. Additionally, a clean sheet might allow them to record back-to-back league shutouts for the first time since May 2021.

That is Ranieri’s mandate going into Saturday’s matchup with the weakest team in the division, and they ought to aim for victory against a team that appears destined to lose at the end of the season.

Jerome Boateng of Salernitana is seen by a physician following an injury on February 16, 2024.

Salernitana’s dreadful situation is highlighted by the Granata’s losing streak of ten games (nine in Serie A), which has left them ten points behind Frosinone in 16th position and nine points below Verona in 17th.

Paulo Sousa and Filippo Inzaghi struggled to get enough wins for Salernitana before the season ended. Fabio Liverani, the team’s third head coach in 2023–24, has that responsibility.

That appears to be too much for the worst team in the league, who have dropped seven of their previous nine games and are trying to become only the second team since Crotone’s incredible comeback in 2016–17 to make it through after earning 14 points from 27 games during the three points for victory season.

Liverani should have been frustrated in his team’s lack of success against the undermanned hosts, who threw Festy Ebosele off after 62 minutes, despite their draw at Udinese last weekend.

This weekend’s matchup with another team facing relegation offers the Granata another chance to gain crucial points in their struggle for survival; a win in these six-point games would prevent them from being sent to Serie B.
