Lazio vs Palermo Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Lazio and Palermo will square off at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday afternoon, with both sides looking to return to winning ways in the Serie A. Lazio fought back from one-goal down twice to secure a 2-2 away draw at Genoa last time out thanks to goals from Lucas Biglia and Luis Alberto. On the flip side, Palermo were held to a nil-nil home draw by Bologna last weekend, despite the fact that they had an overwhelming 63% ball possession and 16 goalscoring opportunities. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Lazio will be looking to get back to winning ways at home after their heavy 3-0 defeat against Napoli in their most recent home league game. Lazio have only lost four of their 18 home fixtures across all competitions so far this season, and they are also undefeated in the last eight home meetings with Palermo. On the other hand, Palermo are the third worst away team in the division, winning just two of their 16 league trips so far this season. This having been said, I’m backing Lazio to grab an easy victory, but I’m also fancying Palermo to get on the scoresheet as they have scored at least once in five of their last six league trips.

Lazio Preview

Lazio were on a ten-game unbeaten streak across all competitions between the end of January to the beginning of April, but their recent form has been awful. The Biancocelesti enter the fray on the back of a three-game winless streak across all competitions, conceding at least two goals in each of these. Despite the recent struggle, Simone Inzaghi’s men still find themselves in a comfortable 4th position in the Serie A table with 61 points under their belts after 32 rounds, just one point clear of the 5th-placed Atalanta. Furthermore, Inzaghi guided the team to the Final of the Coppa Italia against Juventus following a 4-3 victory on aggregate over Roma. Lazio have been a strong side at the Stadio Olimpico this season, having lost just four of their 18 home fixtures across all competitions. They were on a four-game unbeaten streak prior to their heavy 0-3 defeat at the hands of SSC Napoli in their most recent home league fixture. In addition, Lazio are undefeated in their last eight home meetings with Palermo across all competitions, winning five and drawing three in the process. Ciro Immobile is leading the club’s goalscoring with 18 goals under his belt, while Balde Keita has helped the team with eight goals and two assists in his 26 league appearances.

Palermo Preview

Palermo were held to a disappointing goalless home draw by Bologna last time out to extend their winless streak in the Serie A to nine games. This leaves the Rosanero only in 19th spot in the league table with 16 points after 32 rounds, already ten points behind safety. There has been yet another change on the tactician’s bench, and the new man Diego Bortoluzzi already managed to end Palermo’s five-game losing streak with a nil-nil draw against Bologna, but he need three points here if they want to have any faint hope at mounting a great escape. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Palermo’s main issue throughout the season as they hold the second worst defensive record in the division, conceding 67 goals in 32 league outings. At the other end of the field, Palermo only managed 25 goals in 32 rounds, including ten from their top scorer Ilija Nestorovski. Ivaylo Chochev and Robin Quaison have also enjoyed a decent campaign, as the pair bagged seven goals and one assist between them. Away from home, the Rosanero have only won two of their 16 away league games so far this season, and are currently on a seven-game winless streak.
