Salernitana vs AC Milan

, KO: 19:45 Dec 22, 2023, Stadio Arechi
AC Milan

AC Milan will be aiming to continue their pursuit of the frontrunners as they travel to Salernitana for a Friday night Serie A fixture. The Rossoneri have looked sharp in recent weeks and should be too strong for the bottom side.

Salernitana are coming off a 4-1 hammering by Atalanta in their previous Serie A fixture. They opened the scoring early in the encounter through Lorenzo Pirola but capitulated after the break and went on to concede four times.

That was the third straight defeat for Salernitana, who are already looking like prime relegation candidates with barely half the season gone. Filippo Inzaghi’s men have actually picked up just two wins all season and have spent much of the campaign rooted to the bottom of the standings.

Salernitana have also had very little home comfort this season having picked up just one win in front of their fans so far. Among their results at the Stadio Arechi is a 4-0 defeat to Inter Milan while they were also beaten 2-1 by Bologna in their previous home fixture.

AC Milan were rampant last time out in Serie A as they claimed a 3-0 victory over Monza. They were largely untroubled for much of the contest with Tijani Reijnders and Jan-Carlo Simic giving them a comfortable lead at the break before Noah Okafor completed the rout in the second half.

After a few stumbles, AC Milan appear to be returning to their best and have won three of their last four Serie A matches. They have risen to third on the standings but remain nine points behind local rivals Inter Milan at the top of the table.

While AC Milan were beaten 3-2 by Atalanta in their previous Serie A away fixture, their record on the road has been generally solid. They are unbeaten in six of their eight Serie A away matches this season with victories over Roma and high-flying Bologna among their results in that run.

How the bookies view it

AC Milan have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 4/9 by bet365 to claim the win. An unlikely victory for Salernitana is valued at 13/2 by BetVictor while a draw is set at odds of 7/2 by BoyleSports.

Head to head

Players to watch

Olivier Giroud remains the leading scorer for AC Milan with eight goals this season and will be the one to watch on Friday. The striker was also on target in the last meeting with Salernitana back in March and is priced at 13/10 by Paddy Power to get on the score sheet.

Anything else catch the eye.

There have been goals for both teams in the last three meetings and Friday’s clash could be set to produce a similar outcome at 10/11 with bet365. The last meeting at the Stadio Arechi produced over 2.5 goals which is priced at 8/11 by Unibet while over 3.5 goals is priced at odds of 15/8 by 888Sport.

With AC Milan priced at minimal odds for a straight victory, a win and over 2.5 goals could be considered at 6/5 with Paddy Power.
