Palermo Prediction

Palermo already hold a useful five point cushion at the top of Serie B ahead of second placed Brescia, but this lead could become an eight point gap as the hosts take on a mid-table Salernitana outfit who have yet to record an away win this season in the league.

By contrast, Palermo have suffered just one defeat throughout this successful campaign so far which was a 2-1 loss away at Brescia all the way back in September, but the hosts have since recorded an impressive sequence of 13 league matches without defeat prior to this clash on Friday night.

Palermo possess a solid home record that stands at 5-4-0 17/6 which includes winning three of their last five on home turf with victories against Cosenza, Pescara and Ascoli, and you have to go back to February last year when the hosts last tasted defeat at their Stadio Renzo Barbera, which spans some 19 league matches.

Forwards Nestorovski (6 goals), Trajkovski (4 goals) along with Moreo and Puscas (3 goals apiece) will be looking to make life difficult for Salernitana here.

 

Key-Facts – Palermo v Salernitana

  • Palermo have lost just once this season
  • The hosts are unbeaten at home in their last 19 matches in Serie B
  • Salernitana have won just 1 of their last 19 on the road

 

Salernitana Prediction

Onto the visitors then, and Salernitana have managed to scrape just one win from their last six matches in Serie B which was a narrow 1-0 home win over Foggia, but recent defeats to Cittadella, Brescia, Carpi and Pescara means the visitors have lost 4 of their last 6 matches overall.

Salernitana owe their current mid-table position to a solid record at their Stadio Arechi where they hold a useful record of 6-2-2 15/10 but away from home they’re still looking for their first win of the campaign.

An away record of 0-4-4 6/14 includes three defeats from their last five on the road with losses incurred at Venezia, Cittadella and Carpi, while gaining just one win from their last 19 matches on their travels which was a 3-1 win at Ascoli back in March last year.

Betting Tips Verdict

Palermo look well placed to take all three points against a very poor travelling Salernitana outfit.
