Our match prediction:
Giuseppe Iachini failed to produce results with the Sicilians, as it was the case with six managers before him this term, since Palermo are getting dangerously close to the red zone. Their recent defeat against Inter got them just a step above the dotted line, and with Frosinone breathing down their necks, the Rosanero need all the points they can get in their battle against relegation. It seems almost impossible they could hope for a positive result in the upcoming clash against Stadio San Paolo outfit. The Partenopei finally ended their five-game winless run, Gonzalo Higuain is back on the score sheet and looks like Maurizio Sarri’s men finally got out of crisis. The Neapolitans are still in the game for the Serie A title and a below-par Palermo should not present a difficult obstacle in their way, which is why we predict a sure triumph for the visitors this time out.
