Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Ascoli and Palermo will lock horns at Stadio Cino e Lillo Del Duca in what is expected to be an interesting Serie B encounter. Ascoli aim to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Sudtirol and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Il Picchio defeated FeralpiSalo 3-0 in their last home game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Saturday’s clash. Talented forward Vincenzo Millico is pushing for a start, while defender Aljaz Tavcar is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
The Sicilians, on the other hand, are determined to return to the Italian top flight and their performances in back-to-back wins over Reggiana (3-1) and FeralpiSalo (3-1) are surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Ascoli Piceno. Palermo are more of a team than Ascoli and we predict that the promotion-chasing visitors are going to prove their worth on the field. Both Roberto Insigne and Alessio Buttaro are out of contention with injuries for the visiting team.
