Juventus vs Salernitana: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online – Serie A 2023/24

Juventus have an opportunity to seal Champions League qualification for 2024/25 if they can defeat bottom-placed Salernitana on Serie A Matchday 36.

-

Juventus will host Salernitana at the Allianz Stadium on Serie A Matchday 36 in what should be one of the most one-sided matches on paper.

The Bianconeri are third with 66 points, but they have draw their last four matches in Serie A, and they are struggling to score goals, having found the back of the net on just three occasions in that period. Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic has scored 16 goals this season, and he is second only to Lautaro Martinez from Inter, but he has scored just once in the last seven games.

Meanwhile, the Granata have bottom place confirmed as they have just 15 points for the 2023/24 campaign, and they are 14 points behind Sassuolo in 19th spot. The club from Salerno have lost their last four matches, and their last Serie A victory was on December 30, 2023, when they defeated Hellas Verona 1-0.

Despite the underwhelming form of Juventus, this match is a great opportunity for La Vecchia Signora to win and seal their place in the Champions League for next season. A depleted Salernitana earning a least a point from this match would be nothing short of a miracle.

Juventus vs Salernitana: Predicted line-ups

Juventus will miss Timothy Weah due to suspension whereas Danilo, Alex Sandro, and Kenan Yildiz have to pass fitness tests prior to the match. Versatile wing-back Andrea Cambiaso is one yellow card away from serving a ban.

The Bianconeri are expected to start in the 3-5-2 formation as usual albeit with Daniele Rugani starting in defence while Cambiaso and Filip Kostic should operate as the wing-backs. Despite his lack of goals lately, Vlahovic should start in attack ahead of Arkadiusz Milik and play beside Federico Chiesa.

Meanwhile, Salernitana are missing several key players due to injuries. The list consists of goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa; defenders Domagoj Bradaric and Norbert Gyomber, midfielders Giulio Maggiore and Grigoris Kastanos, and the versatile veteran Antonio Candreva. Lorenzo Pirola is a caution away from being suspended.

Granata coach Stefano Colantuono is expected to line his team up in the 3-4-3 formation. Former Tottenham and AS Roma defender Federico Fazio will provide experience at the back, but the team will consist of raw youngsters like Niccolo Pierozzi, Andres Sfait, and Loum Tchaouna.
