salernitana vs venezia Tip Reason:

After typically Italian delays, the Serie B relegation playoff is back on. These two sides seemed to be saved after the league demoted Palermo automatically – despite the club finishing third. The Rosanero were taken from the top playoff place to bottom, but they stayed up after a successful appeal. That means that Salernitana and Venezia meet on Wednesday – 25 days since the pair last played in Serie B – to fight over survival. Who will drop down to the second tier this season? The hosts are away in the second leg at the weekend, so it’s vital that they kick things off with a victory on Wednesday night. Salernitana were the lowest finishers of these two, although only on goal difference. Both sides were just a point clear of the relegation places, so they are more than worthy of being demoted to Serie C. The home side only just stayed up despite losing their last five clashes of the campaign, which left them on the verge of the drop. Venezia have fallen some distance, as they were playing in the promotion playoffs a year ago. They were led by ex AC Milan forward Pippo Inzaghi, who left in the summer to take up a role at Bologna. Without him, the Venice club have fallen some way, while they could drop back into Serie C after an impressive climb. They moved up after investment from an American businessman, but this season has seen Venezia drift. Can they save themselves in this week’s promotion playoff? The visitors will be boosted by their opponent’s form of late. Facing a side who have lost five on the bounce has to be reassuring. In that time Salernitana have conceded 15 goals, while they’ve scored four times. With defensive issues haunting them all season, the hosts should be worried about their ability to keep a clean sheet here. They conceded over a goal per home game, letting in a goal in 75% of their league matches overall. Venezia finished off the season with a few improved results, but they are also conceding too many. Both teams scored in their last four games of the campaign, while they’ve conceded in their last 13 away trips. Salernitana have conceded in 11 straight league games, which doesn’t really give us confidence in their defensive abilities. Given their issues, we expect both sides to be capable of getting forward to cause problems. Both teams to score is our pick for this first leg encounter.
