They are at the 15th of the league table, just three points above the relegation zone. Salernitana is with eight points lead with the team at the 18th, so they want to widen their lead through a win.

Sitting at the seventh of the league table, Roma are still aiming to finish at the top four in the league table. They are with 59 points, and are still seven points behind the team at the fourth, so they need to win every games as possible. Fortunately, Roma were able to pick up themselves and are now unbeaten in their last five matches in the league. This is the momentum they want to bring in this match, as they continue to fight for a spot in the European stage. However, Roma is coming into this match from a goalless draw against Bologna. Despite their unbeaten run, Roma is actually dropping in form recently, having just win in their last seven games, However, it is expected that Roma will push harder in this game, to reach for their aim.

It is expected that Roma will make little changes in their squad for this match, due to fitness issues. Both Leonardo Spinazzola, and Seki Celik sustained their own injuries against Leverkusen. Fortunately, Stephan El Shaarawy, and Diego Llorente are both coming back from their injuries. Paulo Dybala, and Chris Smalling on the other hand are both expected to get some minutes in this match.

Salernitana on the other hand is looking to widen their lead against the team at the 18th, as they are currently at the 15th. They are currently with 38 points, with eight points lead with the team at the drop zone. A win in this match could make them steal the 14th spot, a safer spot for them. Salernitana finally returned on winning ways on their last match, winning against Atalanta, in a 1-0 win. However, it seems like playing away from home is not good for them, as they only recorded a couple of wins in their away matches. In fact, Salernitana have lost their last five matches on the road against Roma. Coming into this match, they are hoping to finally put a stop in this record, and finally win on the road against Roma.

Salernitana only have won injury concern coming into this match, with Federico Fazio being on the sides due to his injury. Dylan Bronn on the other hand is coming back from his suspension, so expect him to play and add power for his squad.
