Our prediction for this Serie B match:
All eyes will be on Stadio Renzo Barbera when Palermo and Modena take on each other in the Serie B round 21. The Sicilians aim to recover from a 2-0 loss to Cittadella and you should know that they are eyeing their sixth home win of the process. Keep in mind, though, that both Leo Stulac and Ivan Marconi are banned for the home side, while Fabio Lucioni remains on the sidelines with injury.
The Canarini, on the other hand, are on a five-game winless run in the Italian second tier and seeing that Palermo are capable of producing fine displays at “Renzo Barbera”, we are tempted to bet on the hosts. Midfielder Abdoul Guiebre is on international duty, while Antonio Palumbo misses Saturday’s clash with injury. In their last meeting in Sicilia Palermo recorded a thrilling 5-2 win over Modena and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
