Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Friday’s football game between Palermo and Cosenza will open round 6 of the new Serie B campaign. The Sicilians are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win and their third clean sheet in a row, but they will have to showcase their worth on the field. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but experienced forward Leonardo Mancuso could sneak into the starting XI after scoring the winner at Ascoli in the last league match.
Cosenza, on the other hand, are on a four-game winless run in the Italian second tier and seeing that Palermo have turned their Stadio Renzo Barbera into a real fortress, home win should be considered. As for the visiting team, midfielder Pietro Martino is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. Keep in mind, though, that the two sides played out a goalless draw in their last meeting in Sicilia.
