Palermo vs Verona
Italian Serie B
Date: Monday, 8 April 2019
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Renzo Barbera (Palermo).
Stadio Renzo Barbera is sold-out for a mouth-watering Serie B derby between Palermo and Hellas Verona on Monday evening. The match has all ingredients of a promotional six-pointer with just two points separating the two sides who sit in third and fourth place of the league ladder.
The hosts are in a somewhat better position with a two-point cushion on I Gialloblu as well as a game in hand on second-placed Lecce and fourth-placed Verona. However, they did not quite shine in the last couple of weeks.
Le Aquile claimed no more than one point in last two league affairs. They failed to see off bottom-half Cosenza in a 1-1 draw in their previous home fixture, while mid-week round saw them lose 3-2 away at promotional hopefuls Pescara. Can Roberto Stellone’s squad showed character and rebound with a victory in such an important game?
Palermo vs Verona: Head-to-head
Palermo were much more successful in a short history of their head to head meetings with I Gialloblu.
Le Aquile won 7, drew 2 and lost 3 of 12 meetings with Hellas Verona.
Five of these seven wins came at Stadio Renzo Barbera for Palermo.
Both teams scored in four of past five H2H outings.
Palermo vs Verona: Prediction
Both Palermo and Verona scored and conceded goals with ease lately and we have reasons to expect a high-scoring contest when they come across each other on Monday. Each of last five games Palermo played saw goals scored at both ends. The same scenario happened in all of last four of Verona’s league affairs.
Knowing about the head to head record (four of last five H2H clashes also saw BTTS option “coming in”), we have to go for this option at the odds of 1.95 here. As far as outcome goes, draw is most likable of three and we will back it alternatively at 3.20 odds.
