Verona vs Salernitana predictions and betting tips on February 13, 2023
On February 13, Marc'Antonio Bentegodi (Verona) will host the match of the 22nd round of the Serie A, in which Verona will compete with Salernitana. The battle will start at 18:30 CET.
The team is doing its best to repeat the scenario of the previous season. Then, it was saved by the fact that, having released Zurich and making a mistake with his successor, the management appointed Tudor in time – the coach was able to correct the situation. But “the Mastiffs” stepped on the same rake once again: the departure of Igor was followed by a bad choice of the mentor after the summer. Moreover, the rotation in the autumn with a simultaneous bet on the inexperienced Bocchetti looked like an inappropriate attempt to choose the same way. If under the rule of Salvatore the situation only worsened before the pause, then, “the Hellas” obviously came to life in the winter. Having lost to Inter minimally, the outsider won the home matches against Cremonese and Lecce, and shared the points in the away struggle with Torino and Udinese. The previous round resulted in a 1-1 draw with Lazio.
The club stayed in the Calcio after the previous season in a pretty unique way. It goes without saying that Nicola did a great job, strengthening the reputation of a football wizard who always saves hopeless outsiders (everyone remembers the similar performance with Crotone). But when else were modest 31 points enough for survival in the elite division? “The Seahorses” started the new season cheerfully, but then, the team lost its tempo step by step. Moreover, after being defeated by Atalanta with a 2-8 score, the mentor was fired – however, he came back in a day. Davide justified this higher mentioned decision by taking an important victory in the struggle with Lecce. There had been a battle with Napoli before, and no one condemned for the final 2-2 draw. The fighter for survival hosted Juventus in the previous round – the team had not a single chance and lost that game with a 0-3 score. But this time it is extremely important to achieve the desired result in the struggle with, perhaps, one of three underdogs that is eager to survive.
