  • Both Salernitana and Verona: Scored 25% of their goals between the 46th and 60th minutes.

Salernitana - Form Analysis: Undisputed Underdog

The "Seahorses" managed to extend their stay in Serie A twice before, but this season they have been utterly uncompetitive. Despite a 1-1 draw with Juventus in Turin last round, this result highlights the struggles of Juventus more than any resurgence from Salernitana. This was only Salernitana's fourth draw in 2024, with no wins.

Verona - Form Analysis: Points from Home Games Proved Crucial

The "Mastiffs" changed their coach in the summer but spent another season battling to avoid relegation. Barone had a strong start with a couple of wins, but then the team went on a 15-match winless streak, including six consecutive losses. They had to fight hard to maintain their Serie A status, securing critical victories at home against Udinese in late April and Fiorentina in May. Despite a 1-2 loss to Torino (coached by their former successful manager Juric) in the last round, these wins have kept them above the relegation zone.
