This is an early relegation dogfight, as Salernitana are the only side without a single point, while Verona were in the same situation until their surprise 3-2 victory over Roma.

That was the first game with Tudor in charge, replacing fired Eusebio Di Francesco, and he couldn’t have had a better debut, even though Miguel Veloso, Gianluca Frabotta and Bosko Sutalo are still out.

Nikola Kalinic steps in for Giovanni Simeone upfront.

Fabrizio Castori has lost all four so far, but there have been improvements in the performances, especially with the arrival of Ribery.

The former Fiorentina man supports Nwanwko Simy and Cedric Gondo.

Salernitana: Belec; Gyomber, Strandberg, Gagliolo; Kechrida, M Coulibaly, L Coulibaly, Ranieri; Ribery; Simy, Gondo

Verona: Montipò; Dawidowicz, Gunter, Magnani; Faraoni, Hongla, Ilic, Lazovic; Barak; Caprari, Kalinic
