Fiorentina vs Palermo Prediction 8 May 2016

Tournament: Serie A
Location: Artemio Franchi
Match date: 05/08/2016 at 14:00

Clearly, Fiorentina have failed their campaign in spring, as they recorded results that are not good for a side who contends for the highest place in the league. They managed to win only one match in spring (over Sassuolo). They also tied Napoli, Verona, Frosinone, Sampdoria and Chievo. Moreover, they were beaten by Roma, Empoli, Udinese and Juventus. Indeed poor result. With two games left to play, the Viola are 4 points behind 4th Inter and 5 points ahead 6th Sassuolo. We should say, Fiorentina are already in the eurocups zone, they are unlikely to overtake Internazionale or lose two games in a row allowing Sassuolo to be 5th.

Palermo are currently in the dog-fight, trying to avoid relegation and stay in the Serie A for one more season. Notably, they are in quite good shape, so that they really can hope to survive. After humiliating 0:4 defeat to Juventus, Palermo tied Atalanta (2:2) and beat Frosinone and Sampdoria (2:0 both). On top of that, they are 18th in the league with 35 points and 35:63 goal difference. They have the same number of points as 17th Carpi do, only worse goal difference.

Fiorentina have a significant advantage over Palermo in number of head-to-heads won. Besides, the Viola managed to beat their today’s opponents in their first game this season. Palermo in their turn won only 2 away games after the winter break, but still they should strive for victory if they don’t want to be relegated. Fiorentina are probably fine with their 5th spot so they will try just to keep it that way.
