OUR man in Rome Marco Di Cosmo (@Scioltz) is sweet on one Serie A selection this Monday night.
Palermo v Empoli | Monday 20.00 | BT Sport Europe
It’s the final match of the Serie A matchday on Monday night from La Favorita in Palermo.
This is a relegation battle between two sides that share the same points and are just a touch above drop zone coming into their meeting.
Palermo are usually known for their great home record but in 2015 they hold the second worst home return with just five points from a possible 15.
The hosts cannot keep this trend up if they want to avoid relegation and they have one of their best chances to turn it around here against Empoli,. The visitors are playing above their quality level but apart from Riccardo Saponara, they lack of quality upfront.
I am expecting things to change in Palermo’s favour sooner than later, especially going on recent performances. Although they were well beaten against Napoli, they enjoyed a decent game against Inter and a good win away at Bologna recently.
The odds on Palermo to win or to score goals are very tempting but I’ve decided to back the hosts at 29/20 with BetVictor.
