Our match prediction:
The Sicilians should start packing their bags for the Serie B next season if they continue with below-par performances as it was the case in the heavy defeat against Chievo (3-1). Palermo are looking for their first league win since January and four points form their last ten league matches do not give much hope to the supporters. Walter Novellino, the eighth manager in the current season, brought nothing new to the players, who still seem rather pale on the field. Nevertheless, Zamparini calls for the full support of Palermo’s fans in the remaining seven fixtures. Lazio sacked Stefano Pioli and hired Simone Inzaghi after Roma hammered i Biancocelesti in the Derby della Capitale. The capital club is undefeated on their travels since December, but their last eight away matches in all competitions ended in a draw. Given to the current home form of the Rosanero, we predict Lazio will achieve their first away triumph since January.
