Our football match prediction:
Despite suffering a loss to Napoli in Sunday’s football game, Roma remained in second place in the Serie A standings, but, as things stand now, they have slim chances of winning Scudetto. The Giallorossi’s new goal is to book their place in the Champions League knockout stages and we predict that coach Luciano Spalletti is going to take the Palermo game very seriously. The Rosanero have been totally out of form of late and we believe that the likes of Edin Dzeko and Mohamed Salah are going to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. The Sicilians sit in the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Roma and despite the fact that they face a must-win situation in Sunday’s clash, we do not believe that the hosts are capable of upsetting the star-studded capital club. Roma are more of a team than Palermo and they are likely to return to winning ways in the Italian elite division.
Highlighted Team (AS Roma):
AS Roma are a professional football club based in Rome. Roma were founded by a merger in 1927 and they play in the Italian Serie A. Roma’s fiercest rivals are Lazio and it has to be noted that both capital clubs play their home games at Stadio Olimpico. The two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Capitale, which is considered one of the most exciting derbies in the world of football. The Giallorossi (The Yellow and Reds) have won three Serie A titles (1941/1942, 1982/1983, 2000/2001), while winning nine Coppa Italia trophies. The colour of Roma’s shirts is imperial purple with a golden yellow trim. A number of top-class footballers were part of Roma in the past, but Francesco Totti is undisputedly the club’s biggest legend. “The Prince of Rome” made his 601 appearances for Roma on 14 May, 2016 when the Giallorossi recorded a 3-1 win over Milan at Stadio San Siro.
