Serie A Preview | Salernitana vs. Verona: Tudor reboot

by | Sep 20, 2021 20:06

Hellas Verona had a perfect debut under new boss Igor Tudor, beating Roma 3-2, but Salernitana are the only side with zero points.

The change of coach proved immediately effective for Verona, who fired Eusebio Di Francesco after three defeats in as many games, and Tudor inspired the comeback win over Jose Mourinho’s Giallorossi. Miguel Veloso, Gianluca Frabotta, Kevin Ruegg and Bosko Sutalo are probably still out of action, so we could see the same XI again.

Salernitana are the only team in Serie A to have lost all four games, but the performance in the 1-0 defeat to Atalanta was a definite improvement. Fabrizio Castori said he had rediscovered his team and they were very unlucky after hitting the woodwork twice and forcing some extraordinary Juan Musso saves.

Franck Ribery had his first start in the trequartista role and should play again, with Federico Bonazzoli and Nwankwo Simy expected to lead the attack.
