On February 7, Arechi Stadium (Salerno) will host the match of the 21st round of the Serie A, in which Salernitana will compete with Juventus. The battle will start at 20:45 CET.
The team is less than a year under the rule of Nicola Davide. Nevertheless, it goes without saying that the extraordinary specialist went down into the history of this modest club. Having led the crisis newcomer, he was able to ensure the survival in the Serie A in 2022. Of course, there was a lot of luck – only 31 points were enough to achieve the higher mentioned result, but that was not the first miracle if we speak about this coach, a similar scenario was in Crotone. “The Seahorses”, being headed by this mentor, started the new season in a pretty good way, but then lost momentum. After a 2-8 defeat in the battle with Atalanta, the president of the club fired Nicola hastily. Still, he changed his mind a day later. And Davide justified the trust: no matter that the struggle with Napoli was lost with a 0-2 score, the team won in the away match with Lecce – 2-1. Dia Boulaye became the hero of that game: having scored the 8th goal in this draw, he also made an assist.
The club is now even closer to the Serie B than its modest opponent. That is because no one excludes such a final punishment for the revealed frauds. Although, the higher mentioned punishment is limited to a 15-point penalty, which levelled the chances for the Champions League. In addition, the problems outside the arena began to affect the performance of the players. As a result, there were a 3-3 draw in the battle with Atalanta, and, that is even more important, painful defeats in the matches against Napoli (1-5) and the debutant, Monza (0-2) – nowadays, Allegri’s wards “hang out” in the 13th place. Moreover, a number of players were sold at the deadline in order to have time to earn some finance. However, it is not worth discounting the team. It has got a success in the Copa Italia match against Lazio, winning with a 1-0 score.
