Venezia vs Palermo
Italy – Serie B
Date: Monday, 11th March 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Stadio Pierluigi Penzo (Venice).
Just six points separate the top six spots of Serie B, and quite easily, complacency for two match-days in a row could entirely disrupt the top-tier of this league. As can be seen, the pressure is starting to show in the teams’ performances.
Right now, we have Palermo, the second team in the table, trailing by just two points behind the topper, and in turn, has at least three teams below them circling like vultures to take their spot should the team lose.
They are supposed to take on Venezia, from the relegation zone. A win in this tie might push them to the zenith of this league, like Brescia, the current topper has shown tendencies to falter in the recent match-days, and a loss will likely take Palermo out of the direct promotion spots to Serie A, and demote to the playoff positions.
In short, a must-win game for Palermo.

Venezia vs Palermo Prediction
Palermo is a team with title ambitions. And they are taking on a side threatened with relegation. Moreover, Palermo needs to win this game. On the one hand, they have a shot to move to the top-most position of the league, due to the recent bad-form of the current pole-position-holder Brescia. On the other hand, they are fiercely being chased by the likes of Pescara, Benevento, Verona etc, and a loss will likely result in Palermo being evicted of their current spot, which ensures direct entry into Serie A.
Also, Venezia is winless in their last five games and has just one win in their last 11 matches. They are also on a losing streak of three fixtures. At home, they have just one win in their last five attempts. Coming to their opposite number, they were unbeaten in 17 of their last 20 matches, and in seven of their last nine on the road. They also registered three of the last four h2h wins.
On the basis of these observations, we pick the best tip to be a dominating win by the guests.
