Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Buoyed by a 3-1 win over Venezia, Palermo will look to stay in automatic promotion berth when they take on Sudtirol on Matchday 8. The Sicilians are eyeing their fifth win of the process and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s encounter. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Matteo Brunori, who scored a hat-trick in the triumph over the Lagunari, while fellow forward Francesco Di Mariano remains on the sidelines with a muscle problem.
Sudtirol, on the other hand, are eager to remain undefeated in the 2023/2024 Serie B campaign, but seeing that Palermo are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from Sunday’s clash. Forward Silvio Merkaj should be the only absentee in the visiting team.
