Serie A action on Sunday as Juve and Salernitana meet at the Allianz Stadium – 8:45pm GMT.

As it stands, Salernitana will go to the Allianz Stadium in tenth place, Juve are currently in seventh.

Juventus go into this meeting with nine points secured

Following a 1-1 draw against Fiorentina, Juve will be hoping for more.

Also, Juve have developed a habit of drawing football matches this season, which is reflected by their position in the table. With nine points (2W, 0L and 3D), they are established in seventh position in the League having won two fixtures and drawn three games.

When Juve host Salernitana, they will do so on the back of two victories and one draw on their own ground.

A victory for Juventus would put them on 12 points.

Massimiliano Allegri will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of five of his Juve players.

With the Serie A season well into its stride, Salernitana have managed to gain six points

Salernitana will no doubt see this game as an opportunity to bring some consistency of form into their season, following a draw away to Empoli, as well at Bologna.

Also, with two draws in two meetings, Salernitana need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. They currently stand tenth in the League, with six points for a total of 1 wins, 1 losses and 3 draws having won one game, drawn three matches, and lost one game.

Salernitana will travel to Juve with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with two darts.

Winning this fixture will see Salernitana on 9 points.

A solid defensive team

So far, Salernitana’s defence has been outstanding, as they have conceded four goals. Despite delivering often average performance, their goal scoring stats have been good (7). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Boulaye Dia (3), Federico Bonazzoli (1), and Tonny Vilhena (1).

Salernitana’s squad has depth, but even so, Davide Nicola is likely to be missing four of they key players when they start Sunday’s game.
