Our football match prediction:
Palermo are running down a blind alley ahead of the visit of Fiorentina. The Rosanero were hammered by Lazio (2-6) at Stadio Olimpico at the weekend and it is more than obvious that they will drop to the Serie B at the end of the season. However, their pride will be at stake in Sunday’s football match against Viola and the hosts are likely to fight tooth and nail against Paulo Sousa’s team. Fiorentina quickly recovered from a shocking loss to their local rivals Empoli, with the team recording a thrilling 5-4 win over Inter at the weekend. Khouma Babacar scored a brace in the triumph over the Nerazzurri and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. The Viola aim to stay in the race for a place in the Europa League and we predict that they will pick up all three points from the game.
