Salernitana vs AC Milan Prediction
Salernitana are 20th in the league table, eight points behind 17th-placed Cagliari. They have won only one of their last five league games, and their current form does not inspire confidence. They boast former Bayern Munich star and France international Franck Ribery in the squad, but the 38-year old has only made limited appearances for the side.
They added Italy international Simone Verdi to the squad on loan from Torino in January, and the 29-year-old scored a brace on his debut. However, a miraculous uptick in form will be required if Salernitana are to stay in the Serie A next season.
AC Milan, on the other hand, are top of the league table, one point ahead of Inter Milan, who have a game in hand. Credit must be given to manager Stefano Pioli for the work he has done since taking over the club. A mixture of veteran stars and young talent has propelled the club to great heights.
Prediction: Salernitana 0-3 AC Milan
