Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Palermo will look to seal their spot in the playoffs when they face Brescia on the last day of the regular season. The Sicilians suffered a 2-1 loss to Cagliari at the weekend, but they are seen as favourites to beat Brescia in front of home fans. Midfielder Ivan Marconi is banned for the match, while Salvatore Elia remains on the sidelines with an ACL injury. Defender Edoardo Lancini should be fit for Friday’s clash.
Le Rondinelle, on the other hand, are one point away from securing the Serie B survival. However, home win should be considered as Palermo have turned their Stadio Renzo Barbera into a real fortress. The visitors will be without Massimo Bertagnoli in the decider, while Andrea Papetti is a major doubt. You should know that the two teams played out a 1-1 draw in their last meeting in Sicilia.
