Thursday sees the last semi-finals in the European competitions – both the Europa League and the Conference League. But these are not the only events of the day – in Serie A there will be a game that did not come on time – the newcomers, Salernitana and Venice, will also play each other. Both clubs are in the relegation zone, and perhaps a defeat would put a final end to their hopes of survival. Who will surrender and who will flounder? The website experts have prepared a prediction for this match on May 5, 2022. For full information and all odds for the match, look at 1xbet betting.
Salernitana have left the bottom of the standings in a sharp spurt
“The Seahorses have risen to Serie A for the second time in their history. Just as they once did at the end of the last century, things threaten to be limited to a one-year stay at that level now. Nothing helps, neither the heartbreaking, on the verge of disqualification, finding a new owner, nor the relatively good, by name, reinforcement of the squad in the winter window, nor the invitation of Davide Nicola, a coach who has experience of “magical” saves. There were some good results under him, like 2-2 with Milan. But in general, the scoring was extremely modest. And how it all changed in April: we beat Sampdoria, Udinese, Fiorentina. And on Monday they met with Atalanta – and only in the 88th minute Pashalic gave Malinovskiy the lead to a draw 1-1.
Venice started well, but it didn’t last long
The Winged Lions looked a lot like their next opponent. There was also a brief rise in Calcio at the end of the last century, and then a protracted period in which the team gave no reason to look back. And only last season, they managed to break through back to Serie A. Paolo Zanetti’s side looked good in the first part of the season, having already lost four times by the end of the autumn. But for the rest of the league season they managed to win only once, against Torino in February. Soon after, there was a protracted series of defeats. As a result, the team first fell into the relegation zone, and then gradually fell behind the competition. At the end of April, the mentor was sacked, but perhaps it was too late. It was already 1-2 without him, though, with Juventus.
Salernitana have won all their last four games. Among them, the Seahorses secured an away win in the autumn, making it 2-1 in added time.
Salernitana have a chance to climb up to 17th, the saving place – and are obliged to take advantage of it. We bet on the club’s win over Venice (odds – 1.82).
