Our match prediction:
Newcomers Crotone have been struggling at the start of the season. The Rossoblu suffered a loss in each of their previous three games in the Serie A and, no doubt, situation at Stadio Ezio Scida is alarming ahead of the visit of Palermo. The hosts are desperate to grab something from the game and it remains to be seen if they are capable of putting an end to the negative trend. Anyhow, Crotone are likely to go all guns blazing at the Sicilian outfit in Sunday’s football match. Palermo have been struggling in the national championship as well and they head into the game following a 3-0 loss to Napoli. The Rosanero are eyeing their first win of the season and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s game against Crotone. Taking everything into account, we predict that both teams are going to find the net in the Stadio Ezio Scida clash.
