Salernitana welcome Monza to Stadio Arechi on Sunday afternoon for a Serie A clash that could be crucial for both teams. KingPin.pro's expert writer, Darren Plant, provides a comprehensive analysis of the two teams, as well as the latest betting trends and data.
Salernitana sit four points clear of the relegation zone and are looking to end their three-match losing streak. They have struggled to replicate the strong form they showed in October, and new manager Paulo Sousa will be looking for an improved performance from his team.
Salernitana's defense will be without Dylan Bronn, who was dismissed in their last game against Lazio. Matteo Lovato is expected to come into the back three, while Tonny Vilhena's place is at risk. Grigoris Kastanos, Diego Valencia, and Erik Botheim are all pushing for an opportunity in the final third.
Monza started the season with five consecutive defeats, but they have since turned things around under the leadership of Raffaele Palladino. They are currently 11th in the Serie A standings, 12 points clear of the relegation zone.
Monza's defense will be without Samuele Birindelli, who collected his fifth yellow card of the season in their last game against Milan. Patrick Ciurria is expected to switch flanks to fill that void, with youngster Franco Carboni possibly making his first start for the club on the left. Stefano Sensi could come back into contention for a start after being on the bench in their last game.
Salernitana have won only one of their last ten games in Serie A, while Monza have won three of their last five.
Monza are on a three-game winning run away from home.
Salernitana have not emerged victorious at home since they edged out Spezia on October 22.
