Palermo vs Atalanta: Preview and Prediction

Palermo will host Atlanta on matchday 34 of the Italian Serie A at Stadio Renzo Barbera as they are still in search of a win after failing to do so in the last 13 games.

The match is scheduled to kick-off at 19:45 GMT on Wednesday, 20th April 2016.

Palermo are in the 19th position in the Serie A and are in danger of being relegated to the second tier.

On the other hand Atlanta are coming into this game on the back of a fruitful 3:3 draw home draw with Roma, they are hoping to go back to winning ways in this game. 

Form comparison

  • Palermo are currently on the decline, they are without a win in their last 12 Serie A matches.

Palermo vs Atlanta: Prediction

Games between these two teams have no favourites and can go either way which seems hard to predict, but considering Palermo’s low scoring form, Atlanta could snatch an away.

Both teams seem to have a porous defence which can be penetrated easily, I expect both teams to score at least a goal in the match.

  • Best bet: over 1.5 goals.
  • Big money bet: Atlanta win
