Palermo vs Roma Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Roma will look to close the gap at the top of the Serie A table when they travel to the Stadio Renzo Barbera to take on Palermo on Sunday night. Palermo threw away a one-goal lead to succumb to a 3-1 defeat on the road at Torino last time out in the Serie A. Andrea Rispoli gave Palermo the lead in the 30th minute, but the hosts bounced back with three late goals within the space of eight minutes. Meanwhile, Roma lost 1-2 at home at the hands of SSC Napoli last weekend with their consolation goal being scored by Kevin Strootman with just two minutes to go. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Roma should have enough to grab all three points in this one as Palermo have been really poor throughout this Serie A campaign. It should be goals here as both sides have been involved in high-scoring affairs recently. Roma are the division’s second topscorers, while Palermo hold the third worst defensive records in the division.

Palermo Preview

Palermo have been one of the most underperforming teams in the Serie A so far this season, having won just three of their 27 league fixtures. The Rosanero managed a narrow 1-0 home win over Crotone at the beginning of February, but they have gone back to their familiar pattern since then. They come into this clash on the back of a four-game winless streak in the Serie A, conceding at least three goals in three of these. The Rosanero currently stand in 18th position in the Serie A table, seven points behind safety. They have struggled to keep the ball out of their own net throughout the season as they have one of the most leakiest defences in the division, conceding 53 goals in 27 league outings. Palermo also looked poor going forward throughout this Serie A campaign, having scored just 23 goals so far this season. Despite this poor attacking record, Ilija Nestorovski has enjoyed an impressive league campaign as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 10 goals under his belt in his 27 league appearances. Their home form has also been a problem as the Rosanero have only won one of their 13 home league fixtures so far this season, which means they are the worst home side in the division.

Roma Preview

Meanwhile, Roma have also looked poor recently, losing four of their last five games across all competitions. They suffered back-to-back defeats in the first leg of their Coppa Italia and Europa League ties at the hands of Lazio and Lyon respectively, along with a 1-2 home loss at the hands of SSC Napoli last time out in the Serie A. Their defeat against the Partenopei was their first defeat in their last five league outings. The Giallorossi’s main reason for their recent struggle has been their sloppy defence, as they have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three games across all competitions. Roma currently sit in second position in the Serie A table with 59 points under their belts after 27 rounds, eight points off the current leaders Juventus and just two points clear off the 3rd-placed SSC Napoli. Scoring goals hasn’t been a problem for Roma so far this season, as they are the division’s second topscorers with 58 goals in 27 league outings. Edin Dzeko has enjoyed an excellent Serie A campaign as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 19 goals and three assists in his 27 league appearances. Radja Nainggolan and Mohamed Salah have also been in fine shape throughout the season, as the pair bagged 18 goals and eight assists between them.
