Palermo vs Fiorentina Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Fiorentina will look to build on their recent victory in the Serie A when they travel to the Stadio Renzo Barbera to take on Palermo on Sunday afternoon. Palermo were thrashed 6-2 on the road at Lazio last time out, although Andrea Rispoli netted a second-half brace within the space of six minutes. On the flip side, Fiorentina won 5-4 at home over Inter, with Khouma Babacar and Matias Vecino scoring a brace each, while Davide Astori established the final score. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Fiorentina are huge favourites to win here due to their form, while Palermo have little to play for as they are already too far behind safety. Fiorentina are undefeated in their last five meetings with Palermo in the Serie A, including a 2-1 home win in the reverse fixture. In addition, Fiorentina have scored at least two goals in four of their last five games against Palermo.

Palermo Preview

Palermo have only won once in their last 15 games in the Serie A, and enter the fray on the back of a ten-game winless streak. They managed to held Bologna to a nil-nil home draw a fortnight ago, but succumbed to a devastating 6-2 away defeat at Lazio last weekend. The Rosanero are second from the bottom in the Serie A table with just 16 points to their name after 33 rounds, already 13 points behind safety. Palermo looked poor at both ends of the pitch throughout the season, but their biggest problems have been at the back. They have conceded 73 goals in 33 league outings, which is the second defensive record in the division. Actually, the Rosanero have allowed at least three goals in five of their last six games in the Serie A. Their home form has also been an issue as Palermo are the worst home side in the division, having collected just six points from their 16 home league games this season. The most worrying fact is that the Rosanero have only scored eight goals in their 16 home games in the Serie A this season. In addition, Palermo have suffered defeats in each of their last three home meetings with Fiorentina in the Serie A, conceding three goals in each of these. Ilija Nestorovski has been Palermo’s most prolific player in front of goal so far this season, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 10 goals and three assists in his 33 league appearances.

Fiorentina Preview

Fiorentina suffered a disappointing 1-2 home loss at the hands of Empoli a fortnight ago but bounced back with a hard-fought 5-4 home victory over Inter last weekend. Actually, their unexpected loss against Empoli was their sole defeat in their last eight league fixtures. La Viola currently stand in 8th spot in the standings with 55 points under their belts after 33 rounds, already eight points off the European places. Fiorentina are one of the league’s topscorer with 55 goals scored in 33 league games, but their sloppy defence has been the main reason for their poor position in the standings. They have conceded 45 goals so far this season, which is the second worst defensive record in top ten. Fiorentina have allowed at least two goals in each of their last three league fixtures. Away from home, Fiorentina have endured a mixed run of form over the past five months, but they looked pretty solid recently. They are currently on a three-game unbeaten streak, conceding just two goals in the process. The good news is that Paulo Sousa’s men have picked up victories in four of their last five visits to the Stadio Renzo Barbera, scoring at least three goals in each of these.
