Palermo host Lazio on Sunday night at Stadio Renzo Barbera as their battle for survival continues.
Coming into this game on the back of a defeat against Chievo, Palermo hopes for a home win to keep their hopes of staying in Serie A for next season alive. Lazio on their own part are 8th in Serie A table with 42 points but getting into next season’s Europe spot seems like a mission impossible as 5th placed Inter are 13 points above them.
- Palermo are currently in a very poor form as they have failed to win their last 10 Serie A games.
- Palermo have failed to find the net in 4 of their last 6 Serie a games
- Palermo have also failed to win their last 4 Serie A games
- Lazio are not in the best of form, they have won just 1 of their last 6 Serie A games.
- Lazio’s last 6 Serie a away games have ended in a draw.

Palermo vs Lazio: Prediction
Lazio may be the favourites on paper but with injuries and suspension they have at hand coupled with the change in managerial position, the game could possibly drift away from them. Nevertheless my money still goes to them as the home side’s display have been nothing to write home about and they are without their best player Vazquez who is on suspension.
