The Old Lady found her way back to victory in the week, but these Salernitana vs. Juventus predictions suggest it will be a close game at Stadio Arechi on Tuesday.
Cotes Salernitana vs Juventus
1 – Juventus win – 4/7
2 – Over 2.5 goals scored – 10/11
3 – Both teams to score – 19/20
4 – Federico Chiesa will score anytime – 10/21
5 – Juventus winner 2-1 – 15/2
A Coppa Italia victory over Lazio on Thursday will have been warmly welcomed by all Juventus fans after three Serie A games without a win and a 15-point deduction for financial reasons. The Old Lady will start this game in 13th place, just above their hosts.
Champions League qualification now looks out of the question – and Massimiliano Allegri has even suggested Juve could be in for a relegation battle – so three points from this look vital. But it could be a close game at Stadio Arechi.
The good news for Juventus is that Federico Chiesa is back and played alongside Dušan Vlahović for the first time in this win over Lazio. He was the team’s best player before his injury and Juve will want him to get back to that form quickly. He could be the one to score a decisive goal on Tuesday.
Salernitana will be hoping they have turned a corner after beating Lecce away from home last weekend. A series of dismal results that ended with the dismissal – and eventual rehiring – of Davide Nicola had brought them down the board.
Confidence will be high for the Granata and they are sure to give Juventus a tough game here. But conceding goals has been a problem all season and they have the league’s worst record. Atalanta’s 8-2 thrashing didn’t help in that regard, but they are a side that always risk giving their opponents too many chances.
With an in-form Federico Chiesa playing again, Salernitana will have to limit those chances as much as possible. But there should be opportunities at the other end – and it wouldn’t be a surprise if the home team also finds the net.

Salernitana Team News
Davide Nicola could leave with the same starting XI that defeated Lecce last weekend, meaning new signing William Troost-Eking retains his place in the bottom four. Salernitana still have a long injury list to deal with so the team pretty much picks itself out at the moment.
Juventus team news
Massimiliano Allegri will now reunite with some of his star players and could put them straight back into the starting lineup after coming through the Coppa Italia on Thursday. Dušan Vlahović and Federico Chiesa could team up again up front, while Juan Cuadrado is expected to start on the right. Manuel Locatelli could also replace Leandro Paredes after impressing against Lazio.
