Our football match prediction:
Lazio were on the verge of suffering a loss to Genoa at the weekend, but Luis Alberto eventually scored a late equalizer for the Biancocelesti. The capital club managed to grab something from the match and that could help them secure a top-five finish at the end of the season. Simone Inzaghi’s charges occupy fourth position in the Serie A standings and they are on the right track to book their place in the Europa League. However, seeing that they are only three points clear of sixth-placed Milan, coach Inzaghi must warn his men against complacency ahead of the visit of Palermo. The Biancocelesti are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that the Rosanero will almost certainly play in the Serie B next season, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s football game. You should bear in mind that Palermo are on a four-game losing run in the national championship.
