      Palermo vs AC Milan Predictions

      Palermo are on the edge of being dragged into the relegation scrap. Their results just haven’t quite been consistent enough to move them completely out of trouble. A recent stretch of games offered an opportunity, they beat Verona 1-0, but were then thrashed 4-0 by Genoa, before putting together their own impressive 4-1 victory against Udinese. Last weekend, they were held away from home to a 1-1 draw by Carpi.

      It’s funny how one game can turn a season. AC Milan’s 3-0 win against bitter rivals Inter Milan might just have done that. 2015/16 has been a little inconsistent, a little erratic, but suddenly Milan are unbeaten in four games, they’re now just six points behind third place Fiorentina for that final Champions League spot. It was a busy deadline day for this club, they’ve signed Andrea Bertolacci and Alessio Romagnoli, both from Roma for a total of more than €40 million.

      Head-to-Head

      The encounter earlier this season was full of entertainment. AC Milan ended up winning a highly competitive game 3-2. The two clubs split their action last season with both clubs winning the away leg, Milan 2-1 and Palermo 2-0.

      Team News

      It’s not clear whether AC Milan will immediately embed their new players in Tuesday night’s line-up. They do have some fresh injury concerns, Luiz Adriano, Nigel de Jong, Mario Balotelli and Alex are all questionable. Giacomo Bonaventura was already a doubt, while defensive depth was already a little limited by injuries to back-ups Rodrigo Ely and Philippe Mexes.

      For Palermo, the biggest concern is whether Alijaz Struna will be available or not, though they have effective cover if not.

       

      Betting Tip Reason

      There’s always the danger that after the emotions of a big win, there’s a bit of a let down that follows it. However, we’re not expecting that to happen here, rather we’ll place that victory in the context of generally improving form and encouraged by an aggressive and high spending transfer deadline day.
