Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Both Sassuolo and Palermo will be aiming to return to winning ways in Serie A after suffering defeats in their respective fixtures in midweek. Sassuolo made a flying start to the season, but the Neroverdi have been completely out of form of late. The team head into Sunday’s game against Palermo following a 2-0 loss to Roma and it has to be noted that the hosts are on a five-game winless run in the national championship. Palermo, on the other hand, suffered a 2-0 defeat to Milan on Wednesday evening and considering that they are just six points clear of the relegation zone, we are positive that the visitors will go for a win in the Stadio Citta del Tricolore clash. Both teams are desperate to grab something from the game, meaning that a lively contest is on the cards. Taking everything into account, both sides should score and we would not be surprised if they share spoils in Reggio Emilia.
