Inter vs Salernitana Serie A Match Preview

Inter vs Salernitana Serie A sets the league leaders against the bottom-placed team. Inter aiming to widen their lead at the top. But Salernitana are desperate for points to avoid slipping further in their fight for survival.

In their recent victory over Roma, the Nerazzurri displayed their depth as goals came from Francesco Acerbi, Marcus Thuram, and Alessandro Bastoni. Even the absence of star striker Lautaro Martinez was not felt. This win extended Inter’s winning streak to seven games. With five consecutive victories in Serie A, positioning them seven points ahead of Juventus. With a game in hand over rivals Juventus and AC Milan, Inter appears poised to maintain their dominance. However, Simone Inzaghi’s side must remain focused, especially with a crucial European tie against Atletico Madrid looming.

On the flip side, Salernitana’s woes are deep after their recent defeat to Empoli, resulting in the dismissal of manager Filippo Inzaghi, brother of Simone Inzaghi. The appointment of Fabio Liverani marks their third coaching change this season. This shows their struggle to find stability between the relegation fears. Currently trailing six and seven points behind Hellas Verona and Sassuolo, respectively, Salernitana faces an uphill battle to escape the drop zone.
