Solanio believes that the Duke will be merciful, but Antonio does not believe so. Again, Antonio expects the Duke to enforce the contract.

SOlanio thinks that Antonio is a very famous merchant and may be he will be a freind of antonio so he will forgive antonio but antonio thinks that it is a matter of justice and there would be no mercy in it.
