Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Roma were on the verge of beating Austria Wien in the Europa League, but the Giallorossi eventually conceded two late goals in the Stadio Olimpico clash and shared the spoils with the Violets (3-3). The Romans, on the other hand, recorded back-to-back wins over the likes of Inter and Napoli in Serie A and it is no surprise they are considered favourites on paper to beat Palermo in Sunday’s football game. Edin Dzeko and Mohamed Salah both came as substitutes in the 3-3 draw with Austria and the duo is likely to be recalled to the starting XI. Luciano Spalletti should field the best possible side this time out and seeing that the Rosanero suffered a heavy 4-1 loss to Torino on Monday evening, we predict that the capital club will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s clash at Stadio Olimpico. In their last meeting in the “Eternal City” Roma crushed Palermo 5-0.
