Salernitana will look to pick up points when they welcome defending champions Inter Milan to Salerno.

The Serie A newbies, who celebrated their return to the top flight this summer after a 22-year absence have found the top-flight too difficult to play. They have lost a whopping 13  games so far this season, winning just two and drawing two, making them one of the most woeful sides in Europe top five leagues.

The hosts come into this tie on the back of a disappointing 1-0 loss to Genoa in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday.

The loss extended their losing run in all competitions to four games. It was also the fourth consecutive game that Stefano Colantuono’s side failed to score in all competitions. 

Despite their managerial change in October, things are not looking positive for Salernitana. With just eight points on the board after 17 games, it will take a miracle for them to stay up this season. 

Possible Salernitana starting line-ups

Vid Belec; Frédéric Veseli, Norbert Gyömbér, Riccardo Gagliolo, Luca Ranieri; Wajdi Kechrida, Leonardo Capezzi, Francesco Di Tacchio, Andre Schiavonne; Federico Bonazzoli, Simy Nwankwo.

Injured: Matteo Ruggeri, Anotonio Russo 

Doubtful: Nadir Zortea, Stefan Strandberg, Leonardo Capezzi, Mamadou Coulibaly.  

Suspended: None

Inter Milan

Serie A defending champion Inter Milan will travel to Salerno looking to continue their remarkable run in the league.

The visitors took their season’s tally to twelve wins (D4, L1) when they defeated Cagliari 4-0 in the last round. A double from Alexis Sanchez and goals from Lautaro Martinez and Hakan Calhanoglu did the damage for Simone Inzaghi’s side and extended their winning run in the league to five games.

The result was also their ninth win in the last eleven games and was enough to push them to the top of the table, one point ahead of AC Milan.

They will now be desperate to maintain their grip at the top by picking up maximum points here. Inzaghi’s men have shown that they are not reliant on one player as they have seen 15 different scorers chip in goals this season. The ‘Nerazzurri’ record of scoring in 36 consecutive top-flight matches also shows that they are not slowing down anytime soon.

Such consistency installs them as the clear favourites to win this game. 

Possible Inter Milan starting line-ups

Samir Handanovic; Danilo D’Ambrosio, Milan Skriniar, Alessandro Bastoni; Denzel Dumfries, Nicolo Barella, Marcelo Brozovic, Hakan Calhanoglu, Ivan Perisic; Lautaro Martinez, Edin Dzeko.

Injured:  Christain Eriksen, Matteo Darmian, Joaquin Correa

Suspended: None
