Team News: Palermo
Looking at personnel, there is just the lone fitness concern for the Palermo gaffer Eugenio Corini to contend with from a near full-strength squad. Salvatore Elia (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) misses out. Ivan Marconi is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
In our view, Rosaneri look set to line up in a 4-3-3 formation for this one and select Mirko Pigliacelli, Ales Matějů, Ionut Nedelcearu, Roberto Crivello, Mladen Devetak, Jacopo Segre, Claudio Gomes, Jérémie Broh, Nicola Valente, Matteo Brunori and Francesco Di Mariano.
Team News: Venezia
Due to a completely healthy squad available to select from, the Venezia boss Ivan Javorčić has zero fitness worries at all coming into this match. Ridgeciano Haps is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We believe Arancioneroverdi seem likely to play in a 3-5-2 formation using Jesse Joronen, P. Wisniewski, Marco Modolo, Pietro Ceccaroni, Francesco Zampano, Domen Črnigoj, Gianluca Busio, M. Kofod Andersen, Facundo Zabala, Dennis Johnsen and Joel Pohjanpalo.
We’re inclined to think that Venezia certainly have the ability to find the back of the net against this Palermo side, however that is unlikely to be enough to avoid defeat.
We think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 2-1 win for Palermo after 90 minutes. Let’s just see how this one goes.
