Over 2.5 Match Goals

Reason for tip

At least three goals have been scored in 13 of Venezia’s last 16 Serie B home games and while the hosts have scored the most home goals in Serie B this season Palermo have scored the joint-second most of any away club. Palermo need to win by two clear goals so they should be looking to attack from early on, opening the game up further.

Venezia 2-1

Reason for tip

Venezia’s last two games at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo have finished 2-1 and they have scored exactly two goals in their last four at home. Palermo have to score twice to go through and should get on the scoresheet, but they look unlikely to pull off the upset.

Venezia vs Palermo Predictions

  • Palermo need to win the game by two clear goals after losing the first leg 1-0 at home
  • At least three goals have been scored in 13 of Venezia’s last 16 Serie B home games
  • Venezia have scored the most home goals in Serie B this season while Palermo have scored the joint-second most of any away club

Things not looking rosy for the Pink and Blacks

Palermo need to win Friday’s Serie B play-off semi-final return clash in Venice by two clear goals after losing the first leg at home to Venezia 1-0.

In a game of few clear-cut chances, the Pink and Blacks were made to pay for standing off and allowing Nicholas Pierini to take aim with his less-favoured left foot from 25 yards out.

Pierini’s precise strike separates the sides going into this game, but Palermo will still go out if the scores are level on aggregate after 90 minutes because they finished lower in the standings than Venezia. The Winged Lions finished third, missing out on automatic promotion by three points, but they scored more goals at home than any other club and will fancy their chances of finishing off the job.

Winged Lions aiming for Serie B lift-off

Venezia have won four of the last five meetings between the clubs, although they did go down 3-1 to the Sicilians back in September.

Palermo finished as the league’s second-highest scorers on the road, so with the visitors travelling north in need of goals and the stats in favour, all the ingredients are there for the game to feature more goalmouth action than the first clash.

Backing over 2.5 goals, which has landed in 13 of Venezia’s last 16 home games looks advisable with a 2-1 home win getting our vote for correct score purposes as two of the Winged Lions’ last two at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo have finished that way.
