Salernitana v Milan Predictions and Preview

AC Milan’s 1-0 win over Sampdoria proved to be a crucial one, as the Rossoneri took the lead in Serie A, after Inter drew away to Napoli. The Nerazzurri have one point less and a game in hand, but Stefano Pioli’s side will be hoping to hold on to tоp spot at least for a little longer and on paper a game against Salernitana is the perfect chance to do that. 

Pioli’s men are unbeaten in five away games, winning four of those, while they have won nine of their 12 games on the road this term.

Salernitana, meanwhile, replaced Stefano Colantuono with Davide Nicola, despite taking a point after drawing 1-1 away to Genoa last time. The Granata have now drawn two in a row, after a 2-2 stalemate against Spezia in the previous week, but despite this they are still bottom of the table with only 13 points, eight from safety.

Davide Nicole will have to do without the injured trio of Mamadou Coulibaly, Andrea Schiavone and youngster Mateto Ruggeri on his debut. The Rossoneri, meanwhile, will be without captain Simon Kjaer, who is out for the rest of the season. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Matteo Gabbia and January signing Marko Lazetic are also injured, while Sandro Tonali is suspended and will also sit out.
