Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Bari and FeralpiSalo, Palermo will be aiming to extend their winning run to three games when they take on Como on Matchday 25. The Sicilians have been showing signs of late, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to secure automatic promotion. Defender Simon Graves Jensen is sidelined with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
Como, on the other hand, proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Ternana and Brescia, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Palermo, who have turned their Stadio Renzo Barbera into a real fortress. Defender Cas Odenthal serves a one-game ban due to the accumulation of yellow cards, while both Patrick Cutrone and Mauro Vigorito are out of contention with injuries. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a thrilling 3-3 draw.
