Palermo Match Betting News
Palermo endured a tumultuous season last term and their problems were not helped by the fact that enigmatic owner Maurizio Zamparini made no less than nine managerial changes.
Therefore it is unsurprising that Zamparini has already replaced a manager by bringing in Roberto De Zerbi for Davide Ballardini. The early omens show that Palermo could be in for another difficult campaign this season but De Zerbi did guide the Rosanero to their first victory with a 1-0 away triumph over Atalanta in midweek.
Now Palermo prepare for arguably their biggest test yet on Saturday in the form of champions Juventus and it will be interesting to see how De Zerbi’s men perform on the day.
Michel Morganella, Aleksandar Trajkovski, Robin Quaison, Simone Giuliano, Accursion Bentivegna and Slobodan Rajkovic are the players struggling with injuries ahead of the clash.
Juventus Match Betting News
Juventus managed to recover from their very disappointing loss at the hands of Inter Milan last week by claiming a thumping 4-0 victory over Cagliari on Tuesday night and the three points means that the Old Lady have moved into the summit of the Serie A table once again.
Now manager Max Allegri will be keen on his side to keep hold of top spot for the foreseeable future and Juventus will surely be eyeing up a victory when they square off against Palermo at the Stadio Renzo Barbera on Saturday.
Claudio Marchisio, Mehdi Benatia, Patrice Evra, Gianluigi Buffon, Federico Mattiello and Rolando Mandragora are the players doubtful with injuries ahead of the clash for Juventus.
Palermo vs Juventus Match Prediction
Juventus have claimed eight consecutive victories over Palermo without conceding a single goal and it looks very likely that Bianconeri will be able to continue their dominance over the Rosanero this weekend as well.
Palermo did claim a morale boosting victory in midweek but Juventus simply look too strong at the moment and should be able to claim the three points in comfortable fashion on the night.
