Their most recent results really do illustrate the point that huge efforts have been put in by the Reggiana defence. I Granata have been miserly, with the number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their last six matches standing at 4.

A series of outstanding showings by the Salernitana defensive unit has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their last 6 clashes overall. Over that same period of time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 8. That trend isn’t assured to follow through into this match, of course.
Coming into this clash, Salernitana are undefeated in their last 3 away league matches.
