Analysis and forecast for the match of the 4th day of the Italian Championship “Salernitana” – “Torino” (09/18/2023)
The group stage of the European Cup will begin soon. For now, all attention is directed to the internal sphere. In Italian Serie A, two matches on matchday four will be played on September 18. In the first of them, the local Salernitana will receive Torino at the Arechi Stadium in the city of Salerno. The game starts at 19:30 Moscow time.
It’s time for CSKA to improve their game:
CSKA – Lokomotiv. Fedorov will put an end to failures
In three matches of the Italian Championship, Salernitana drew with Roma (2-2) and Udinese (1-1), and also lost on the visit to Lecce (0-2). Thus, he settled in his usual place, not far from the starting area. He finished the previous two seasons here.
There are preconditions for the Seahorses to finish better in the current Italian Championship. At the end of last season they gained phenomenal momentum. Salernitana has lost only 3 of its last 16 games in the championship. In addition, they lost twice away from home. However, there were many ties: nine. But it also shows that the team has character. Losing is not in their rules.
These results are due to several factors. First of all, the Salerno club has improved a lot after the appointment of Paulo Sousa as coach. The Portuguese coach has gained reliability in defense and has significantly increased his power in attack. Secondly, the team was joined by experienced and very talented goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.
The 38-year-old goalkeeper is in excellent shape. He continues to impress with great saves and helps Salernitana progress. Another veteran leader of the Seahorses, Antonio Candreva, is also in excellent form. In four games this season, he scored three goals and had one assist.
Nikita Gusev is not so dangerous anymore:
“Dinamo” – “Spartak”. Alexey Zhamnov will stop Nikita Gusev
Over the summer, Sousa received several promising young players to help him. Among them: Rennes striker Lum Chauna, Villarreal forward Bulaye Dia (who was on loan last season at Salernitana), Polish national team midfielder Mateusz Lengowski and Chukwubuikem Ikwuemesi. Little by little, beginners get used to it.
Like Salernitana, at the end of last season Torino gained a very good momentum. However, in the summer he had to go through big changes. Several players left the team and became prominent players: former Lokomotiv midfielder Alexey Miranchuk and Wilfried Singo.
To replace them, the Bulls acquired several promising recruits. They bought Ivan Ilic from Verona and Nemanja Radonjic from Marseille. They also signed Cagliari full-back Raúl Bellanova, who played for Inter last season, Verona midfielder Adrien Tamez and Dynamo Moscow defender Sabu Sazonov.
In addition, Torino loaned two Atalanta players, Duván Zapata and Brandon Soppi, as well as a young PSG defender. There are many newcomers. Some, in particular Sazonov, have not yet played a single official match in the new team. It’s hard to say how long it will take Yurich to integrate them into his system.
So far, without the creative Miranchuk, the Romans are having a hard time. In Serie A they failed to beat Cagliari, which is in the relegation zone (0-0), and only with great difficulty did they achieve victory at home in the last round against Genoa (1-0), who played in Serie A last season. Q. The Bulls scored the winning goal in the 94th minute. They also lost to Milan (1-4).
We probably shouldn’t expect good results from Torino in the near future. It was already very unstable and now it will be even more difficult. The best betting option seems to be 1X + TM 3.5 balls at odds of 2.07. The last two head-to-head meetings ended exactly like this. Both teams tied 1:1.
Lukaku gives him the pleasure:
Rome-Empoli. Romelu Lukaku will please Mourinho
This time the Salerno Club has the advantage of having its stadium at home. Unlike the “bulls”, it was strengthened selectively. It’s unlikely that it will take long for Souza to adapt new recruits to his system. We don’t expect many goals because both teams have strong defenses, top-level goalkeepers and poor performance.
In 38 meetings in the last Serie A, the Romans conceded only 41 goals, but they themselves scored few – 42. The Seahorses, in turn, did not concede more than two goals in any of the last 18 matches of the Championship. They score more often than the “bulls,” but not by much.
Prediction and bets for the Serie A match Salernitana – Torino September 18, 2023
Most likely, the next match will be marked by a draw or a victory for Salernitana by a minimal margin. It has been on the rise since the end of last season. All thanks to the sensitive leadership of Souza and the excellent play of leaders Candreva and Ochoa. In their stadium, the Seahorses, who have specifically reinforced their squad, have a good chance of taking points from Torino. The Bulls didn’t have the best start. This is because some of the main players have left and a large number of newcomers need time to develop chemistry.
Tender: Salernitana will not lose and the total will be less than 3.5 goals in 2.07.
