Our prediction for this Serie A match:
In the 18th round of the Serie A Fiorentina will travel towards Palermo for a confrontation with the local club. Fiorentina will restart the new year in the middle of the title race; la Viola holds 35 points out of the first 17 games and is placed second on the table having 1 point less than Inter Milan; Napoli holds the same amount of points and is currently placed second as well. Palermo on the other hand is placed 16th and is not very far from the relegation zone and will have to improve their performance in order to stay in the Italian Serie A. In the last 4 games between Fiorentina and Palermo Fiorentina managed to win all of them. We predict Fiorentina to steal the victory in Palermo and win by minimum difference 0-1. Palermo is a strong team at home but the Fiorentina squad simply contains more quality.
