Competition: Serie B play-off
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365
With Palermo managing to win an appeal to secure their Serie B status for next season, Salernitana and Venezia will feel hard done by as they meet in a relegation play-off final on Wednesday.
Starting with the hosts, coming off the back of another lackluster display in their 2-0 defeat away at Pescara last weekend, Salernitana have really started to struggle at the end of the campaign. Enduring a five-match losing run that stems back to the middle of April, a huge part of their issue this year has been their continued struggles defensively. Shipping 57 goals, the second-worst record of any team in Italy’s second tier, Leonardo Menichini’s men have failed to record a single clean sheet in any of their last 11 league appearances. It is also worth noting that Wednesday’s hosts have now shipped seven goals in their last two matches at the Stadio Arechi.
As for the visitors, picking up an impressive 3-2 win away at Carpi to end their Serie B campaign, Venezia will be devastated by the news that Palermo have managed to win their survival appeal. Demanding that his side bounce back on Wednesday, Serse Cosmi’s men are unbeaten in their last three and have shown real improvements in the final third. Bagging six goals on their unbeaten run and finding the net in each of their last four appearances, there still remains plenty of concern over their inability to record a clean sheet. Remarkably, Venezia have recorded just one clean sheet in their last 22 outings, a run that stems all the way back to the 8th of December. With the two sides playing out a 1-1 draw when they met back in March, we’re backing a similar outcome on Wednesday night.
Bet: Both teams to score at Salernitana vs Venezia 1/1 for Wednesday’s Serie B play-off @ Bet 365
