Palermo vs Genoa Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Genoa will be looking to secure their Serie A status when they travel to the Stadio Renzo Barbera to take on the already-relegated Palermo on Sunday afternoon. Palermo managed a 1-1 away draw at ChievoVerona thanks to a late equaliser from Edoardo Goldaniga. On the flip side, Genoa picked up an unexpected 1-0 home win over Inter, with Goran Pandev scoring the winner in the last 20 minutes of the game. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Genoa need a victory here, while Palermo have nothing left to play for as they will play in the Serie B next weekend. Genoa head into this clash high on confidence following their 1-0 home win over Inter last weekend, so I’m expecting them to build on that and to grab another one on Sunday. I’m not fancying goals here, as both teams’ topscorers Ilija Nestorovski and Giovanni Simeone are doubts ahead of this tie.

Palermo Preview

Palermo have endured a disappointing Serie A campaign, and their 1-1 away draw at ChievoVerona last weekend confirmed their relegation back to Serie B after three years in the Serie A. Their recent form has been decent as they managed a 2-0 home win over Fiorentina along with a 1-1 away draw at ChievoVerona. The Rosanero have been struggling at both ends of the field throughout this Serie A campaign, but their biggest problems have been at the back. Palermo conceded 74 goals in 35 rounds, which is the second worst defensive record in the division. Their home form has also been an issue as Palermo have only collected nine points from their 17 home league games this season. The good news is that Palermo looked a little bit better on home soil recently, as they kept a clean sheet in each of their last two home league fixtures. Furthermore, Palermo are undefeated in their last seven home meetings with Genoa in the Serie A, winning five and drawing two in the process. Ilija Nestorovski has been Palermo’s most dangerous player on the pitch throughout this Serie A campaign, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 10 goals in his 34 league appearances. However, the 27-year-old striker got injured last time out, and he is a doubt ahead of this game.

Ilija Nestorovski, Slobodan Rajkovic, Alessandro Gazzi and Carlos Apna Embalo are all doubts, but Mate Jajalo is out through suspension. The good news is that Stefan Silva Rojas is back in training following his leg injury.

Genoa Preview

On the other hand, Genoa have finally returned to winning ways in the Serie A last weekend thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 home victory over Inter. Inter's former striker Goran Pandev scored the winner for Genoa in that game. Prior to this win, the Grifone were on a seven-game winless streak in the Serie A, losing six in the process. This puts Genoa in a perilous situation at the moment, as they sit in 16th with just five points clear of the bottom three. Although, a victory here would secure safety for Genoa if Crotone fails to win against Udinese. Scoring goals have been Genoa’s main reason for their struggle throughout the season as they only managed 34 goals in 35 rounds. Despite this negative record, Giovanni Simeone has enjoyed a decent campaign as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 11 goals in his 33 league appearances. However, he got injured last weekend, and he is a doubt ahead of this clash. Away from home, Genoa have only won once in their last 15 away games across all competitions, while losing twelve in the process. In addition, the Grifone are currently on a three-game losing streak on the road, scoring none in this term. Head-to-head, Genoa have lost three of their last four meetings with Palermo in the Serie A, conceding at least two goals in two of these.
