Salernitana search for first win as they make the trip to Genoa

Salernitana‘s search for their first victory of the 2023-24 Serie A campaign will continue on Friday evening when they make the trip to Stadio Luigi Ferraris to tackle Genoa.

The visitors are currently 19th in the table, only boasting four points from their first nine matches of the season, while Genoa are 15th, picking up eight points from their opening nine games.

Genoa have won two, drawn two and lost five of their nine Serie A matches this season to collect eight points, which has left them 15th in the table heading into the next set of fixtures.

The Red and Blues were surprisingly relegated from Serie A at the end of the 2021-22 campaign, but they managed to secure promotion from Serie B at the first time of asking to return for the 2023-24 season.

Salernitana, meanwhile, finished 15th in Serie A last term, avoiding relegation by 11 points, so it certainly went down as a successful campaign.

I Granata have struggled thus far this term, though, boasting a record of four draws and five defeats from nine matches to collect four points, which has left them in 19th position in the table.

Salernitana are one of only three teams in Serie A – the other two being 18th-placed Udinese and 20th-placed Cagliari – yet to triumph this term, while they have only found the back of the net on six occasions.

It is difficult to back either side with any real confidence; Genoa are the favourites, but they have not exactly been impressive this season. It would not be a surprise to see a home victory, but we have a feeling that Salernitana will be able to claim a share of the spoils on Friday night.
