Palermo vs Sampdoria Predictions

With just three games to go before the end of the Serie A season, Palermo have a three-point gap to make up on 17th-placed Carpi if they are to avoid the drop. But their form does not suggest they can get out of trouble, even though a 2-0 win at Frosinone last time out was a massive boost in their survival bid. The chaos off the field, with Palermo having changed their coach on countless occasions this season, appears to have acted as a distraction on the pitch, with Palermo have gone 13 matches without a win prior to last weekend’s victory.

Sampdoria are not quite safe, but 40 points on the board is typically enough to ensure Serie A status for another season. It has been a disappointing campaign for Vincenzo Montella’s men, but a strong last three games could yet see them claim a place in the top half of the table – that is how tight Serie A is this year. But one win in eight offers few signs that Sampdoria are worth backing here, with that sole victory coming at bottom side Verona.

Free betting tips and predictions for this clash must take into account the fact that Palermo are scrapping for survival, while Sampdoria’s season is effectively over, but the hosts themselves are in such poor form it is hard to side with them either. We therefore turn to the goals market, with Sampdoria’s last three away games seeing just four goals, while Palermo have drawn a blank in four of their last six home games.

Under 2.5 Goals at Evens with Betfair is therefore the selection for this match, while from the correct score market we also like the look of the 1-1 Draw at 6/1, which is also available with Betfair.
