Palermo vs Lazio Predictions

Crisis-hit Palermo have slipped into the Serie A relegation thanks to a joyless run of 10 league games without a win, leaving them level on points with Carpi but in the drop zone due to their poor goal difference. The suspension of attacker Franco Vazquez will hit Palermo hard, the in-demand star having provided seven assists and five goals for his side in the league this season. New coach Walter Novellino is already reportedly in danger of losing his job after a poor start to his reign at arguably the most unstable club in the division.

Lazio parted company with Stefano Pioli after a humiliating 4-1 loss to Roma in the Rome derby last weekend, with the coach paying the price for a mediocre league campaign, coupled with a surprise Europa League exit at the hands of Sparta Prague. Pioli’s replacement, for the short-term at least, is Simone Inzaghi but he has the same lengthy injury list to contend with as his predecessor. Six straight draws on the road have contributed to Lazio sitting well off the pace in Serie A and with a 13-point gap to make up on the top five Lazio’s squad have little to play for – apart from their futures.

Palermo are impossible to back given the state of the club and lack of improvement under their new coach, while there is talent in Lazio’s ranks despite a number of players being stuck in the physio room. Lazio to win at 23/20 with bet365 looks good value if Inzaghi can coax a reaction to last weekend’s derby loss out of his players, while Lazio to win 1-0 at 13/2 with bet365 is the pick of the correct scores market.
