Palermo take on the visitors Genoa in the round 5 match of Italian Serie B. The match will be played on Friday, September 9th at Stadio Renzo Barbera (Palermo).
Palermo are back to Serie B level. The Pink-and-Blacks have a rather glorious but controversial history. On the one hand, in 2011 we reached the final of the Coppa Italia. On the other hand, in 2019, as a bankrupt, the team was lowered to the semi-amateur division - D. It is worth recognizing that they did not stay there, rather quickly rising higher. But from Serie C, the “up” pass was taken only last spring, and then through the playoffs, after the 3rd final place. However, on the courage, the newcomer was able to win in the 1st round match (2-0 with Perugia), after which there was a 1-1 draw on the Bari field. But both Ascoli and Regina defeated today’s hosts, and each time there were 3 goals conceded.

Genoa clearly plans to return to Calcio as soon as possible. They are a legendary club for Italy, 9-time champion of the country. But soon, in 2024, they will "celebrate" the 100th anniversary of most recent success. After that, there was only a cup in 1937, and in 1992 - a semi-final of the UEFA Cup. Not always, but it turned out to stay in Serie A, and in 2009 even the Italians played in the group stage of the Europa League. But last season was a failure. Moreover, Andriy Shevchenko was also involved in this - the bet on the Ukrainian as a coach was extremely unsuccessful. Blessin, who replaced him, corrected something, but all the same, Genoa, gaining only 28 points, flew to Serie B from the penultimate place. After that, of course, many players left. But all the same, the task does not change: to return as soon as possible. And the club from Genoa started well, and, having played a draw at home with Benevento and Parma, they managed to defeat both Venice and Pisa on the road.
Genoa has only won 1 of the last 8 matches. Moreover, Palermo won four times in 5 recent head-to-heads. Palermo just had rose from Serie C, and Genoa played in Calcio just a few months ago. Still, these are clubs of different levels - we recommend betting guests from Genoa to win.
Prediction for the match: Girona to win.
