Salernitana pulled off the great escape last season, managing to somehow crawl their way over the line to secure a second consecutive year in Serie A. By the look of results so far, things may be a little easier for the Granata in 2022-23.

But manager Davide Nicola will know how gruelling life is in the Italian top flight and will have to amend his tactics a little from saving the club to consolidating its position. The new campaign has started relatively well though, with five points from the opening four games.

The 1-1 draw away at Bologna on Thursday was a little fortuitous but Salernitana made the most of the Rossoblu’s wasteful finishing to snatch an equaliser right at the end. Another home victory would top off the week well.

Empoli will be doing everything to stop that happening, of course. The Azzurri are yet to win a game this season so far but have become the draw specialists, with the 1-1 stalemate with Hellas Verona on Wednesday the latest point picked up.

Head coach Paolo Zanetti will be happy with the way things have gone so far but will be eyeing this fixture as one to bring in three points. After surviving last season in Serie A, Empoli will be keen to keep as far away from the relegation zone as possible.

It has been a relatively easy start to the campaign – but there are games against Roma and Milan coming up. A point here at least would put Empoli in a good position to withstand the more difficult tasks ahead.

Salernitana team news

After the draw away with Bologna in the week, Davide Nicola may be tempted to stick with the same starting eleven. The veteran midfielder Antonio Candreva may be given another go though, with Franck Ribéry still out through injury.

Empoli team news

Paolo Zanetti will have to do without attacking midfielder Tommaso Baldanzi. The teenager scored an excellent goal in the draw with Hellas Verona but then injured his ankle. Nadim Bajrami should deputise for him – and Mattia Destro may be given another chance up front.
