Pordenone will play Salernitana in the 36th round of the Italian Serie B. Do the hosts have any chances?
With three rounds to go before the end of the season, Pordenone are in a difficult position. The team is located in the 15th position bordering the zone of transition matches and has a safety cushion in the form of one point. If away Pordenone rarely achieves positive results, then at home the situation is the opposite: already five rounds without defeats, in which there were two wins and three draws.
A more prestigious task is solved by "Salernitana", which consists in increasing the class. To date, the club is in third place and is one point behind the zone of direct entry to Serie A. True, Salernitana could approach the reporting match, being on the second line, but they could not even achieve a draw in the confrontation with Monza (1-3). Because of the loss, Salernitana not only did not rise to second place, but also broke a 3-match winning streak.
Statistics and figures:
- Pordenone have not lost at home in five rounds;
- Salernitana have won three of their last four games;
- In the first round match, Pordenone won 2-0.
I do not think that Pordenone, in dire need of points, will be able to stop Salernitana rushing to Serie A, even at their home stadium. Guests will try to do everything to cover the failure of the last round, score three points and, with successful handouts, rise to the promotion zone in the class. I bet on the victory of "Salernitana" for a coefficient of 2.90.
