Salernitana vs AC MilanSerie A, KO: 19:45 Feb 19, 2022, Stadio Arechi
After climbing to the summit of Serie A, AC Milan will be looking to fend of the chasing pack. They travel to Salernitana on Saturday and will be confident of coming out on top against the bottom club.
Time is running out for Salernitana as they look set to take the plunge into Serie B. They are eight points from safety having spent the entire season rooted to the bottom of the table.
Salernitana were held to a 1-1 draw by Genoa in their previous Serie A fixture with Federico Bonazzoli getting their goal. That result means Davide Nicola’s men have only claimed three wins from 23 Serie A matches this season, suffering 16 defeats in that run.

AC Milan have won their last two Serie A matches and are now one point above Inter Milan, who have played a game less.
AC Milan are coming off a 1-0 home victory over Sampdoria in their previous Serie A fixture. They struck early in the first half through Rafael Leao and despite failing to build on that lead, were able to hold on for the win.
The Rossoneri have surprisingly fared better on their travels having suffered just one away defeat all season. Stefano Pioli’s men have won four of their last five Serie A away matches and triumphed 2-1 over champions Inter Milan in their previous fixture on the road.
