US Salernitana seeks first win

US Salernitana is looking to finally get their first win in the Serie A, as they face Udinese Calcio, after drawing their opening match. Both Salernitana, and Udinese are actually coming into this match winless, following their opener results. Salernitana had a 2-2 draw against Roma, while Udinese is from a devastating 3-0 loss to Juventus. With that, these two teams are aiming to finally get their win, as they do not want a winless momentum. This will be the 16th time that Salernitana and Udinese will cross paths, and from those meetings, Udinese leads their matches. They won eight, while Salernitana only have three wins, while the remaining matches ended in draws. This meeting will be on August 29, 2023, at 12:30 AM (GMT+8), with Salernitana play as hosts.

Salernitana did not have a good result during their opener, following their 2-2 draw against Roma in the Serie A. However, they are still fortunate that they started their campaign without a loss, which could have changed their momentum. Antonio Candreva was able to provide a goal for Salernitana, while Andrea Belotti’s goal forced the draw. That draw extended their unbeaten record, after a 1-0 win in Coppa Italia earlier this month. Moreover, when it comes to meeting their opponents, it seems like they have an advantage. From their last two league meeting with Udinese last season, they are actually unbeaten. However, it seems like they cannot have a home advantage here, as they only have one win from their last seven home meetings against Udinese. Nonetheless, Salernitana are hoping to finally score a win in the Serie A.

There might be no changes for the side of Salernitana in this match, following their draw on their opener. However, Guilio Maggiore is a doubt in this match, after he experience a muscular injury, leaving a vacancy for their midfield.

Udinese on the other hand suffered a 3-0 loss against Juventus to open their campaign in the Serie A. That loss is unfortunate for Udinese, as it is a huge loss for their confidence, as it was a dominating loss for them. In fact, following their score line, they are one of the five teams who failed to score in their first game of the season. Fortunately though, when going against Salernitana, Udinese has an advantage, when it comes to wins. They are the ones with more wins when it comes to their meetings, where two of which are from the Serie A. However, when it comes to away games, Udinese are not doing that well, considering their results last season. In their last five away matches on the road, they suffered back-to-back losses, failing to score four times. This is a record they can no longer afford if they want to finally win in the contest.

Considering their result in the opener, there will surely be changes for the squad of Udinese in this campaign. However, they have several important guys being sidelined in this match through injuries. Adam Masina, Enzo Abosse, Kingsley Ehizibue, and Brenner are all injured.
