Entella vs Palermo Preview and Predictions

Entella vs Palermo
Italian Serie B
Date: 29th March 2018, Thursday
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale (Chiavari).

Palermo look to carry the momentum from the thumping 4-0 win over Carpi when the travel to Entella, one of the smallest team in Italian Serie B.

Automatic promotion to Serie A is at stake for Palermo as they sit a point behind the second placed Frosinone. They have a game in hand and three points must push them back to the region.

Palermo are with some momentum with their comfortable win over Carpi on Sunday extending their unbeaten run to 4 games, 3 wins and 1 draw. Also, they scored 11 goals in the process. However, three of those win came at home and they must be considered as a moderate away side. The team is still looking for their first away win in calendar year 2018 and the last 6 saw 4 draws and 2 losses.

Entella struggled for consistency all through the season. They are coming on back-to-back wins over Cremonese and Parma, but they often fail to carry on good form. The last time they won back-to-back games, we saw a barren run of 8 games. So, they cannot be trusted on any given day. Yet, positives can be found in their ability to tie teams to stalemates in front of the home crowd.

Entella vs Palermo: Head-to-head

The lone meeting between the two sides happened this season and Palermo ran winners on a 2-0 full-time score-line.

Entella vs Palermo: Prediction

Palermo had struggled to get results on the road this season and so far added up 4 wins from their 15 matches so far. At the same time, they are thought side to be beat all around and lost just 2 of their away league games this season. This is the reason why Palermo are only slight favorites to win at Entella and backing it a 2.15 odd comes with considerable risk.

The best option has to be draw or away win double chance, but the odds in the region of 1.29 offer little value. However, Palermo-Draw-no-bet priced at 1.53 odd is a decent punt.

Goals are also expected to be at premium since both teams average just above 1 goals in their home and away games respectively. Thus, under 2.5 goals is a good alternate.
